I love searching the Internet for fun DIY projects — especially ones that include my cats. I found these fun feather teaser toys and knew I had to give them a try!

What you’ll need

  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Iron
  • Jingle bell
  • Satin cord
  • Jewelry jump ring

Instructions

  1. Cut out one large and one small feather shape from two different colored pieces of felt.
  2. Cut out several notches on both sides of the feather shapes.
  3. With a hot iron, press a crease down the center of each feather.
  4. Add a jump ring to the jingle bell.
  5. Cut a 1-yard length of the cord and run it through the jump ring.
  6. At the bell, tie the cord around the feather stems with a double knot.
  7. Knot both ends of the cord so it doesn’t fray

Curious cat alert! Because of the jingle bell and cord, this should be a supervision-only toy.
