DIY: Cat Ball

Ball of wool for cat

A little less than 3 months ago we have welcomed a little stray kitten at home and now she is quite playful, yet she entertains herself. With just a ball of paper or piece of cardboard that she finds, she starts playing like a desperate woman.

For this reason, I wanted to make a special gift for his birthday and what more than a big ball of lana to have fun and vent all those nerves. I have not been able to take a photo in conditions while playing, but while I recognized it, yes, so I present it to you, it is called Gato.

Ball of wool for cat

  • Polyspan ball.
  • Newspaper sheet.
  • Wool.
  • Glue and silicone glue.
  • Water.
  • Brush.
  • Scissors.

Our Process

  1. We will wrap the ball made of polystyrene on the sheet of newspaper.
  2. We will take a wool color and make a strong knot, leaving a long strip for the ball to hang down.
  3. We will start roll the ball with the wool until we want.
  4. We will knot the new wool in the cape that we had left long, also leaving a little to hang.
  5. We will start spin around to roll it up like the other.
  6. When the ball is completely covered with wool, we will glue the cape with silicone.
  7. We will make a mix with glue glue and water to give the ball a coating so it won't fray or break when you bite into it.
