I have been creating some pet DIY’s in this week’s youtube and in this post, I am going to show you how to sew a cat collar and also a fun pet tent.
Hands up, do you have a pet that you love to spoil? I love getting a new toy or treat for Blondie and Pepsi. I had been looking on Youtube and Pinterest and got the idea to make a tent, I had seen these being made for kids but I thought I would make one for Blondie.
As always, I have a Youtube video to show you how I achieved both of DIY’s and I will share some pictures and details below.
How to make a cat collar
It is actually really easy to make a cat collar, I recycled one of the old collars and used it as a template to make this new one. Don’t worry if you do not have an old collar as they sell a twin pack of cat collars in Poundland for €1.50.
I simply took apart my cat collar and kept all of the hardware off the old collar. I then measured out my new collar by using the old one as a template.
You can see how I made my collar by checking out my video below but here are the measurements I used for my collar. Length 15.5 inches long, 2 inches in width, but cut 4x times the width to allow for folding of fabric to form the strap.
DIY Pet Tent
I adored seeing these tents on Pinterest so I decided to have a go and try and make my own. I got to put my limited woodworking skills to the test for the project. I go into detail in the video below and share how I made this from start to finish.
I did use power tools for this DIY but you could use a handsaw and hand sand your wood pieces if you do not have tools. Here are the measurements I used for the tent.
I used 4 pieces of 2″ x 1″ wood. I cut them to 36″ inches in length. I measured up 5 inches from the bottom of each piece for the holes and angled one end of the piece for the bottom pieces that touch the floor.
I hope you got some value from this weeks video, please do share if you enjoyed and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel. If you enjoyed this post you might also enjoy this older post where I pimped Blondies feeding bowl, catch it here.
