Meet Snow, our newest addition. She’s a few months old and a ball of spunk that we just adore. She is such an active kitten and loves to play. She’s got a ton of toys but wand type toys are her favorite so I thought I’d make her a cat ribbon wand with some bells, another one of her favorites. It was super easy to make and I’ve shared a full step by step tutorial later in this post so that you can make one too.
In addition to playing, Snow loves eating, likely just as much. We always give her a mixture of dry and wet food to help her grow and she really appreciates getting wet food alone, as a special treat! 9Lives® is the brand that we often buy for her because there are many varieties of meaty morsels in gravy, full of tenderness. The 9Lives Meaty Paté satisfies her with its tasty and smooth ground meat, fish or poultry. The 9Lives Hearty Cuts are great for mixing, with big meaty chunks, cuts, and shreds in a rich, thick gravy.
Cats deserve to live well, and 9Lives is dedicated to the health and happiness of cats everywhere. In fact, Morris the Cat is one of advertising’s greatest icons and joined the 9Lives family in 1968. Since then, together with the brand, he has visited schools across the country to promote kindness to animals and helps to find animals forever homes through the Morris’ Million Cat Rescue®. As if that isn’t enough, Morris has starred in over 50 commercials and also co-starred in a film with Burt Reynolds!

Cat ribbon wand
Now this cat ribbon wand is absolutely one of Snow’s favorite toys and you’ll never believe how easy it is to make, with just a few supplies!
- Ribbon, 5 different colors and/or types, each about 15-24 inches long.
- Baker’s twine
- Wooden dowel
- Craft glue
Step 1. You’ll start by applying glue to one end of the wooden dowel, covering the first -3 inches. Get about 9 inches of bakers twine off the spool (do not cut yet) and let it hang down the dowel. You will start wrapping the twine around the dowel and around the baker’s twine that is hanging down. Once you get a few wraps around, pull the baker’s twine up and continue wrapping just around the dowel, until you get to the bottom of the glued area.
Step 2. Attach some bells to a few pieces of ribbon, then tie it.
Step 3. Now gather all of the ribbons by the middle of each and tie them off with the end of the baker’s twine. Double knot it.
Step 4. Apply some glue all around the knot, to make it more secure.
Now it’s time to play! See how much fun your cat has!
