Halloween is right around the corner, and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be just as fun for your pets as it is for you! While you’re preparing costumes, decorations, and goodies for this October, consider making one of these super spooky DIY toys for your pet too.
Ghost Ball: The majority of dogs and a select handful of cats are eager to play a game of fetch with their owner. Here’s a toy that you can use for either!
You Will Need:
A durable tennis ball (Kong is a good option for dogs)
An old white pillow case or sock
A pair of scissors
A thick rubber band
A non-toxic black marker
First, pull the sock or pillow case over the ball to create a tight, smooth surface. Take your rubber band and tie together the excess material so that it sits directly beneath the ball. Now, spread the hanging portion of your pillow case across a flat surface and use your scissors to cut vertical strips about an inch in thickness.
From here, braid the pieces together (three strands apiece) and secure with a knot at the end. Use your non-toxic marker to draw a spooky face, and you’re done! Give it a toss and watch Buster become…Ghost Buster.
Spellcaster Cat Wand: Every witch needs a side-kick kitty and a good wand.
You Will Need:
About three to five feet of mesh tubing, any color
Cool temp glue gun and scissors
Two-inch thick ribbon, any color
Trinkets, if you wish
Take your scissors and cut a strand of tubing. Use your fingers to push one end of the tube upward as you would with a slinky. Then, gently push one end of the wooden dowel about an inch of the way through. Secure with glue gun.
Take your ribbon and cut about three inches of length. Wrap it over the mesh tubing that is attached to the dowel. Secure with glue gun. Attach a few spooky trinkets such as feathers or toy mice and you’re done!
