Cats sleep for an average of 15 hours a day, and some of them can do it for 20 hours. So it’s no surprise that pet owners want to create suitable sleeping conditions for their four-legged family members. Of course, pets will always find a place where they can spread out their fluffy body, but it’s still better if they have their own personal corner.

5-Minute Crafts will show how to quickly and easily make houses and beds for cats.

1. A house tent

What you’ll need:

  • Cardboard for the base of the tent
  • 2 metal hangers
  • Pliers
  • An awl
  • Hot glue or tape
  • A T-shirt

How to do it:

  • Use pliers to cut off the base of the hangers.
  • Bend the cut pieces to form arcs.
  • Use an awl to make holes in the corners of the cardboard.
  • Insert the ends of the arcs into the holes, placing the metal bases diagonally. Secure the arcs together at the top. Use tape or hot glue to do this.
  • Put a T-shirt on the future tent so the neckline is on its side. Wrap the sleeves inward. Glue the fabric to the cardboard.

2. A bed from an old sweater

What you’ll need:

  • A sweater
  • A thread with a needle
  • Padding made of polyester
  • Scissors

How to do it:

  1. Sew the sweater along the line from one armpit across the chest to the other armpit.
  2. Fill the “shoulders” and “chest” with padding.
  3. Do the same with the “body.”
  4. Tuck one sleeve into the other.
  5. Sew the neck, base, and sleeves shut.

3. A house from a box and a T-shirt

What you’ll need:

  • A box
  • A T-shirt
  • Clips
  • Patterns for decoration

How to do it:

  1. Put a T-shirt over the box. The neck should be on top.
  2. Turn the box over so that the neck is on the side. Tuck the sleeves in.
  3. Secure the base of the T-shirt together at the back of the box — the top part should be secured with the bottom part and one side with the other side. Use a clip for this.
  4. Use your imagination and decorate the entrance to the house with patterns or other trinkets.

4. A lounger bed made of jeans

What you’ll need:

  • Old jeans
  • A belt
  • Old things you don’t need (holey socks, worn-out T-shirts, etc.)
  • A thread with a needle
  • Scissors

How to do it:

  1. Start filling your jeans with old clothes. Before doing this, sew up the legs so that nothing falls out.
  2. When you’re done filling the jeans, place the bigger clothes in the top part of the jeans. Pull the belt tightly around the waistband.
  3. Bend one knee inward. Take the other knee and put it under the opposite thigh. You should get a lotus pose as a result. Put the bed in a place where your pet can rest on it.
