DIY Catnip Yarn Balls

Are you bored with store-bought toys for your furry feline? Well then look no further. We have a super easy DIY (do it yourself) project for you that your cat will go crazy for.

What you will need:

  • styrofoam balls (size is up to you but we recommend keeping them small so your cat can swat them around)
  • hot glue gun
  • mod podge glue
  • paintbrush
  • yarn
  • paper
  • dried catnip


  1. DIY Catnip Yarn BallsLay the paper out over the workspace you will be using.
  2. Working on one ball at a time, start painting the balls with mod podge glue. Once you have covered the whole ball with a thin layer of glue start sprinkling the dried catnip all around the ball.
  3. Continue step 2 for as many balls as you’d like to make for your kitty.
  4. When your catnip covered ball is completely dry you can start gluing yarn to it with your hot glue gun. Try to keep your yarn one strip at a time for this process. It will make for a more clean ball. Plus, we want to make sure the catnip stays on the inside of the ball. Don’t forget to leave a little tail hanging off the ball so your kitty has something to run after.
  5. Let dry completely before letting your furry friend play with them.

We want to give a huge shout out the Joy the Baker for this awesome, kitty concept! You rock!

Please tell us how your kitty liked these DIY Catnip Yarn Balls.
