Introduction: Cat Bed From Recycled Material
My cat has never had a proper bed in my house and I wanted to make him one. He has a cat tree which has a bed on the top, but he has outgrown it and also needed a new one anyway.
- cardboard box
- old towels
- staple gun and staples
- utility knife
- something to use as support for stapling
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
Gather everything you need and go to an open space so you have space to work.
Step 2: Measure
Measure each side at several places between 6 and 7 inches, as desired, from the bottom of the box and mark. This will be where the box gets folded down to reinforce the sides.
Step 3: Connect the Dots
Connect the dots from the previous step. This will insure that the fold is straight.
Step 4: Score the Box on the Line
Cut open the corners of the box from the top down to the measured line. Then score the box along the measured line.
Step 5: Fold
Fold in the sides of the box along the scored line.
Step 6: Towels
Secured the towels, using a staple gun, around all sides of the box to create padding.
Step 7: Pillow
Add a pillow and some more padding as necessary.
Step 8: Final Product
Place your pet’s favorite blanket on top and secure it to the bottom of the box using the staple gun.
