Super Easy Cat Wand
I like Hobby Lobby. No.. that’s not right.. I LOVE Hobby Lobby! Why? Because if you wait long eventually everything is half off.
I went in just to look one day and found myself down the wood isle. Ryker, my son, picked up a bag of wooden shapes and sparked an idea in me. What idea? Oh, you’ll see! Get ready for lots of wooden crafts this year! Like this Super Easy Cat Wand, DIY Witch Hat Necklace, or this Quick Craft Spider Wand.

First thing first! I didn’t give you exact sizes of these wooden shapes and there’s a reason for that.. I don’t know what you have available to you in your area. So do the best that you can with what you have. I believe you can do it!
Start by painting all of your wooden pieces black. Set aside to let dry. Once the top isn’t tacky to the touch, flip over and paint the other side.
Cut out a foam heart or use a wooden heart, don’t forget to paint it black.
Give the foam a light coat of paint so your…
Glitter will stick! See, easy!
Now that your wooden pieces are dry glue them together.
As long as your shapes look similar to a cat it’s perfect!
Glue on your eyeballs. This will help you decide where to put your nose and whiskers.
Make your cat’s whiskers curly by wrapping the orange pipe cleaner around a small glue stick. Do this to all 3 pipe cleaners then find the middle of each, lay them together and twist to lock them in place.
Glue down your cat’s whiskers and add your glitter heart and finish it off with some pretty ribbons.
Add a little hot glue to the back of the ribbon so it doesn’t slide off during play. Done!
