DIY #1

Resin keychain

Get your hands on a silicone mold, epoxy resin, a keychain and some cat hair, and you will have a gorgeous keepsake in no-time! Simply pour a layer of resin and let it cure before adding some cat hair and sealing it off with another layer of resin. If you used UV-resin, speed up the curing process by shining your creation with a UV lamp. Finally, add a keychain ring so you can take a little piece of your furry friend with you wherever you go.

Needle felting

Turn your cat’s excess fur into the most gorgeous creations with the needle felting technique. You will need some crafting supplies like a foam sheet and a cookie cutter, but the basics are actually pretty easy: gather loose hair your cat has shed and form a clump; place it in the cookie cutter shape of your choice on top of a foam sheet, and using a felting needle with barbs, poke the hair making sure not to hit your fingers, just like you would do with regular felt wool. Et voila, you are done!

Help the birds

Birds love to insulate their nest with animal fur, and you can lend them a helping hand! Simply peg a bunch of cat hair on your clothesline for your feathered friends to take away. Just make sure the hair isn’t within reach of your cat!
