Homemade Cat Toy

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen the cat toy I made for Ellie a few weeks ago using some string and a 60 cents dowel. On my last trip to Michael's to pick up some more craft paint, I figured why not and grabbed another dowel to make a toy for a friends cat. Here's what you'll need:

 A dowel, string, and a drill and 3/16 drill bit. Measure about an inch down from the top of the dowel and drill a straight hole through the middle. Then, measure three feet of each string and thread through the hole. If you have trouble, tape the edges of the string to get it through the hole.
If you want,  you can paint the dowel too. I did navy blue, spring pasture, wedding cake white, and ballet slipper pink to create random width stripes. Tie the strings into a knot at the top, braid a few strings together, and knot all the bottoms of the strings to prevent fraying.
