Wallet-Friendly Feline Crafts

These DIY Cat Toys are Made out of Empty Toilet Paper Rolls

— July 27, 2013 — Lifestyle
Toys for your pets can become expensive, which is why these DIY cat toys are perfect for your kitty and your wallet.

Crafty Angie Bailey created five different toys made from empty toilet paper rolls. Not only are they simple to make, but toilet paper rolls are extremely easy to come by in your own home (or at least I would hope they would be). As many pets often eschew expensive toys to begin with in favor of items like toilet paper rolls (or water bottles, socks, boxes, straws and the like), these DIY cat toys should put your frustration to rest. One could also take the next step and decorate the cardboard rolls to make them more aesthetically pleasing.
Trend Themes
1. DIY Pet Toys - The rise of creating one's own pet toys to save money while still providing entertainment for the animal.
2. Upcycling Home Goods - The trend of repurposing common household objects into creative and useful items.
3. Sustainable Pet Products - The demand for eco-friendly and affordable pet products, leading to more DIY options like these toilet paper roll cat toys.
Industry Implications
1. Pet Products - Pet product companies could benefit from creating more affordable and eco-friendly options like these DIY cat toys.
2. Home Goods - Home goods companies could tap into the growing trend of upcycling by marketing products that encourage creative DIY projects.
3. Crafting - The crafting industry could expand by providing materials and tutorials for DIY pet toy projects, appealing to both pet owners and eco-conscious consumers.
