Step by step craft instructions on how to make cute cat garland, perfect for decorating for the holidays!
Hello my lovely cat ladies, you look purrfect today.
Do you have any cat stories to share this holiday season? Is your cat knocking over your tree? Is your cat catching those lights? Is your cat cozy sleeping under the tree? Is your cat knocking over every ornament you have?
It’s Goblin’s first Christmas and he treats everyday like it’s the best day ever. I am pretty sure he thinks every ornament is a toy that we gave him. He just doesn’t understand when we tell him we can’t knock them down. I know he’s thinking.. “Give me toys so I can look at? No, Goblin must play!”. What else does Goblin love.. garland! Hours of entertainment when there’s string involved! To step up my cat lady game though, I decided this would be the year of cat garland.
Garland is so much fun for any day of the year, but especially around the holidays. It’s great for trees, walls, front door and parties! The great thing about making your own garland is customizing it to whatever color or pattern you want.
I use this all over the house. It’s on our big tree, our small sparkly trees, our cabinets (without string) and our front door!
Oh and it’s also a great activity to do with your cats. 2 of the 3 of us are really enjoying ourselves right now..
How to Make Cat Garland (for all My Cat Ladies)
Paper Card Stock (good quality paper so it doesn’t bend or fold)
Cat Die Cut (I used Sizzix 655442 Dress Up Kitty)
Sizzix Big Shot Machine (one of the best investments ever!)
I love my Sizzix machine. I’ve already used it for so many recipe photo shoots and this Christmas I’m making my own holiday tags of all shapes. If you like crafts, parties and cute things I think you should get one! A holiday gift to yourself! :D) Shown here is the Sizzix along with the Extended Multipurpose Platform and 1 Pair of Cutting Pads.
Ta-da! You have cat garland… Have fun!
