Cotton Ball Kitty

Vote for this contest contender!

This is a super thrifty craft for all ages. This fluffy cat is made of cotton balls glued onto part of a plastic water bottle. Embellish it however you like. I used acrylic gems and a small piece of ribbon. Meow!

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 1 cat

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Cut off the top third of the water bottle. This will be the cat's body.
  2. Glue on cotton balls all over the plastic bottle.
  3. The narrow end of the bottle will be the cat's head. Glue on a few more cotton balls on that side.
  4. Divide one cotton ball into 4 pieces. Take 2 of those pieces and form them into little triangles to make the cat's ears.
  5. Glue ears on top of the head.
  6. Glue acrylic gems onto its face as eyes and a nose. The glue will dry clear with time.
  7. Tuck a Q-tip into the back of the cat, between the cotton balls and the bottle, for its tail.
  8. Tie some ribbon around its neck as a collar.
  9. Kitty is ready to pounce!
