Are you a cat lover? It will be so fun to give your cat a hanging scratching pad. Your cat needs to scratch for various reasons. Nevertheless, it is hard to find space to scratch due to the lack of trees. Then, creating a hanging scratch will help it to fill its needs. You can craft it by hand in minutes. Let us see a great example of a DIY hanging scratching pad from Debie and Mark below!
First of all, gather the materials needed to craft the scratching pad. You need to have a piece of wood, hot glue, natural fiber rope, leather string, scissors, drill, and pencil. These materials can be found at the nearest store in your city. Usually, people store these materials in their storage.
Wrap the wood with natural fiber rope. Use glue to secure it. So, the cat will not break it easily. Create two holes with a drill to put the leather string. Then, you can add a carpet remnant on the bottom of the scratching pad, but this is optional. With this simple step, you will have an almost finish scratching pad. It is ready to use, but please make it more attractive.
Draw a letter on the top of the pad with a pencil. For example a letter of “H”. You are free to draw other letters or pictures, anything. It will be better to write the initial letter of your cat’s name. Now, it has been perfect to use. What a simple but cool craft! The last, hang it on the knob of your door. Feel free to hang this scratching pad on the wall as well.
Look! Isn’t it cool? The cat will love this too. It is less than an hour to make this lovely craft, just takes a few minutes. Even if you are a DIY newbie you can finish this project sooner. This simple project needs not much budget. Let your cat scratch away any time it wants. Furthermore, it also functions as a decorative accent for your home too.
