Hello and welcome to a DIY tutorial for this popular small pet hideout! You may have seen wooden versions of this hut before, but today I’m going to be showing you how to make it out of cardboard and popsicle sticks.
For this DIY you’ll need:
- Hot Glue
- Popsicle sticks
You can use giant popsicle sticks like I did, or the original size if you’re making this hut for smaller small pets.
- First you need two cardboard walls. For these, I didn’t actually measure anything and just drew the desired shape and size of the pieces. To get them identical I traced the first one.
- Cut a doorway into one of the pieces (See easy tutorial here).
- Hot glue the sticks over the walls.
And the DIY is done! This type of hut is really fun because you can make them in so many different silhouettes depending on what shape you make the cardboard walls! I definitely want to experiment with that. You could use coloured sticks, and do themed cages! Please comment down below if you’ve tried anything like that, or would be interested in seeing a post with me making different designs 😀
