Introduction: Homeade Catnip Balls

This Christmas season, don't forget your furry little friends when it comes to gifting! Here's how to make some easy catnip filled balls for them.

Step 1: What You Need

Ping-Pong Balls
Scotch Tape
Sharpie Marker
Catnip
Something kinda heavy
Hand Sewing Needle (To poke holes)
Drill

Step 2: Mark the Holes

Mark where you want to make the holes in your ping-pong ball using the Sharpie marker.

Step 3: Poke the Holes

Take the needle and slowly tap it into the dots using whatever weight you have (It's not something you do with one hit, tap it gently.) It will probably take a while depending on how many holes you want.

It might help to shine a light in the ball to make sure you've put holes where every dot is.

Step 4: Drill Another Hole

Gently take the drill and make one hole. It needs to be just big enough for you to put catnip through it.

Step 5: Fill

Rub catnip into the hole until you have plenty inside. (About 1/6 to 1/4 full)

Step 6: Tape Shut

Take tap and press it against the area of the hole several times to get rid of whatever catnip is there that will get in the way of a new piece of tape sticking. Get a piece of tape just big enough to cover and stick it against the hole.

You have now completed your cat toy! I hope your cat enjoys it. :)

Step 7: Give It to Cat
