Cute Wooden Cats From Scrap Wood!
Are you a cat lover?! If so, let's raid that scrap wood pile you have in the garage (or pickup a 2x4 from the hardware store!) and create adorable wooden cats to decorate our home.
You'll need 2 of these wooden triangles per kitty!
Next, glue the 2 pieces together. Arrange them so the points look like little kitten ears sticking up! Use wood glue.
I found using a clamp make this part easier. The clamp holds them in place while they dry. You could also use books or something heavy to hold them in place.
After the glue dries, add a coat of paint. You can paint any color you like! Or get creative, add spots or stripes, etc!
You have a few options for the face. I used a paint pen to hand draw the face on this white cat, but I used vinyl from my Cricut machine to create the glitter face on the black cat. You can also snag my cut file via this link.
This little guys look adorable on a bookshelf!
