I’m Diggin’ it : Cat Rings

I’m going to apologize to my male readers, this post is purely dedicated to  my kitty obsessed ladies out there!

I originally planned to post a litter-box makeover this week (coming next week), but after a tipsy Mexican lunch with some of my girlfriends my inspiration for this week changed to cat rings! Turns out, these girlfriends of mine are equally obsessed with kitty swag. We shared cute shirts, sweaters, purses, and jewelry that we have pinned that feed into our obsession. I picked the most adorable cat rings to show you guys. Go ahead and get your “awws” ready!

This Nabi cat ring is so gorgeous! This ring is the original wrap around cat ring. (Drooling over the gold)

This Catbird cat face ring is so dainty. It can be worn as a first knuckle ring or second knuckle ring.

This is another wrap around cat ring from the Etsy seller yaci. This ring comes in black, silver, and gold-colored metals. This ring’s price tag is a little more broke girl friendly.

Finally, this Madewell wrap around cat ring is super cute and the most budget friendly. The only sizes offered are 6 and 7. (Small finger problems)

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Let me know if I should continue making kitty fashion posts like this.

DIY Cat Bookend

bigger

Thrift stores are overflowing with animal figurines. Most are not so cute, but with some spray paint you can turn any ugly porcelain animal figurine into a stylish bookend.

best

Step One: Remove any price tags, marks, or dust from your porcelain cat.

Step Two: Shake your spray paint for at least two minutes.

Step Three: Place your porcelain cat on a cardboard box. (Spray paint outside if possible)

Step Four: Start spray painting your cat making sure to spray 10-12 inches away from the surface. I chose a bright pink color to brighten up my mostly white apartment.

Step Five: Allow your cat to dry for at least ten minutes, and apply a second coat. 

Step Six: After your cat is completely dry (about 45 minutes) fill the figurine with glass gems ( vase filler) by pouring them into the hole located at the bottom of the figurine. I purchased my glass gems from Hobby Lobby for $2.99.

Step Seven: Cut two pieces of Duck Tape and secure the hole on the bottom of the figurine. (Most porcelain figurines have a hole on the bottom)

This project was extremely cheap, easy, and the finished product is pretty swanky.

DIY Kitty Kush Kicker Toy

Image

Does your cat enjoy being high on cat nip? Does your cat roll around, purr, and meow with no concept of reality while on cat nip? If so, you better roll up some sticky-icky for your kitty and get to making this DIY kitty kush kicker toy.

What You Need:

  • Seamless t-shirt 
  • Scrap fabric to use as stuffing
  • Scissors
  • High quality cat nip (that good-good)

Step One: Lay your seamless t-shirt on a flat surface. Cut along the bottom seam and also cut just under the sleeves.This will create a rectangular piece of fabric

Image

Step Two: Cut the rectangular piece of fabric into two equal sizes.

Image

Step Three: Cut the two rectangular pieces of fabric in half horizontally. This will create four smaller rectangular pieces of fabric. Set these to the side.

Image

Step Four: (Optional if you already have scrap fabric)

Cut along the sleeves and under the collar of the shirt to create some scrap fabric that can be rolled into a ball.

Image

Step Five: Roll the scrap fabric into a ball and secure with a fabric string. Create this fabric string from the bottom seam that you cut off in step one. Repeat this step two times to create two balls.

Image

Step Six: Lay two small rectangle pieces of fabric on a flat surface. Pour two small piles of cat nip on the left and right side of the piece of fabric. Make sure to leave a few inches of room in between the piles and from the edge of the fabric. Then place the two fabric balls on top of the cat nip piles.

Image

Step Seven: Twist the fabric with the cat nip and fabric balls until it resembles a piece of candy.

Image

Step Eight: Lay the wrapped piece of fabric on top of the second piece and then twist them until the cat nip and fabric balls are completely enclosed.

Image

Step Nine: Take one of the extra pieces of fabric and cut it in half. Pull these small strips of fabric until it resembles string. Use this string to tie off the ends of the toy. Tie the middle of the toy in a knot as well. Cut off any excess strings.

Image

Image

Step Nine: Pass this kitty blunt to your furry friend and watch them go bananas for this kitty kush kicker toy.
