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.
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!
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!
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.
