DIY Two-Story Popsicle Stick Apartment Tutorial (For Dwarf Hamsters)
Hello and welcome to this week’s post! I recently purchased a few different sizes of popsicle sticks from my local dollar store, and I was very eager to create something with them.
After some thought I designed this house, with a second story and a removable lid for easier cleaning. The stilts are for submerging in substrate to prevent the house from moving or crushing a burrowing hamster.
‘For Dwarf Hamsters,’ is not a suggestion; this DIY is not a suitable size for Syrian/Chinese hamsters.
Popsicle Stick Bridge DIY Tutorial
Greetings! This week I will be demonstrating how I created this really neat popsicle stick bridge for Beanie, my Syrian hamster.
This toy is inspired by those rainbow-bridge toys, which I’ve tried making before. However, I find it is very difficult to get the rails right when I try with cardboard, so I wanted to try it with popsicle sticks. Personally, I’m quite pleased with the results!
Semicircular Small Pet Hut DIY Tutorial
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. his 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 😀
Staircase Hidey House and Climbing Toy DIY Tutorial
Hello and welcome to a very interesting DIY tutorial for this staircase-like hidey house for small pets. I saw a natural, wooden hidey house resembling this the other day, and I thought it would be pretty fun to DIY!
I did change the design slightly from the original toy I saw, adding a shelf inside leading to an upper door. I’m including the measurements to make this toy for all hamster species, gerbils, and mice.
The October Cage Makeover (2020)
Welcome to the October Cage Makeover of 2020! As shown above, Beanie‘s cage is dwindling from interest, and definitely needs a clean and makeover.
In her current setup she has some toys, such as her wheel, duck basket, hide’n’climbing toy, bendy bridge, chew block, a little tin bucket, basket hut, luxury house, foraging toy, rock, and water bowl.
I will have the bold items in this setup and the new setup linked at the end of this post, if you’re interested in recreating or learning about them 🙂
DIY Small Pet Tee-Pee
Presenting the Tee-Pee for small pets! The Tee-Pee is adorable, but is smaller in size than my other DIYs. Because of its smaller size it is recommended for Dwarf Hamsters and Mice. It’s lightwieght, small, and portable. It’s perfect for sheltering a food or water dish from substrate, or can be used as a hideout. …. Read More
In March of 2020 I wondered if there were more to make Beanie forage for her food, since it would be very enriching. I didn’t want her food in her Eco Earth pit for fear she’d consume it, and sand definitely wouldn’t be good either. Then I looked across my kitchen and saw my bag …. Read More
