DIY Cat Toys from Wine Corks

For these easy cat toys to make you will need

  • Wine corks  (You can purchase these by clicking on the link if you aren’t a wine drinker)
  • E6000 epoxy glue
  • Trimmings like feathers, pipe cleaners, jute, raffia, etc.

Start by steaming the wine corks for a few minutes to soften them up, then use scissors or a paring knife to make a hole 1″ deep into the corks (you’ll also have to do some twisting to make the hole wide enough) If your corks are being stubborn, you can boil them instead of steaming. Just make the hole after pulling them from the water and allow them to cool off and dry a little before using the glue.

Twist the trimmings around each other to make a point, then roll the twisted ends in enough epoxy that they form a fine point.

Squirt a little epoxy into the cork then add the pointed end of the trimmings to the hole. Allow to dry completely before giving it to your cat. This will not only prevent the toy from falling apart but will also keep your kitty from breathing any epoxy fumes. They will be put off by the smell anyway so just let it thoroughly dry first.
