Krinkle-It Foraging Tube Toy DIY Tutorial
Welcome to the Krinkle-It Foraging Tube Toy DIY Tutorial! I received a parcel the other day and to my delight it was packed with Krinkle-It paper shreds! As soon as I saw them I knew I wanted to make this DIY.
With this toy your hamster is provided with food, stimulation, and nesting material.
These toys are ridiculously expensive, and I see no reason to spend money on one when you can do it yourself! Today I’m going to be showing you how to make a few versions of the common, confetti-ish, foraging toy we all know and love.
DIY Hamster Garden House Tutorial
Hello and welcome to the DIY tutorial for this adorable garden house for small pets! This house is two stories tall, with a grassy yard and little balcony. It’s a great toy/hideout for Syrian hamsters and mice, since they particularly enjoy being up high.
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!

DIY Two-Tiered Tower 2.0 Tutorial
Greetings, and welcome to this week’s post. I’ll be showing you how I created this two-story platform for hamsters. It is more directed towards dwarf and Chinese hamsters, but it the size is acceptable for smaller Syrians.
It has a little fenced-in upper platform with a ramp leading to and from it. Below is a larger platform perfect for a food dish to rest.
Let’s get into the tutorial!
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.
DIY Plastic Tub Hideout and Platform Tutorial
Hello and welcome to another DIY tutorial! This week I’m showing you how to make a cute platform and ‘underground’ nest from a small plastic goat cheese tub. I’ve been saving this tub for about a week, brainstorming what I wanted to make with it, until today when I purchased a pack of coffee stirrers. I thought they’d be handy since they’re basically long, skinny popsicle sticks, and I realized they’d be perfect for this project.
