Pet owners will cut their cheap rugs in half to copy this $10 idea

Thought of a creative way to build an inexpensive cat scratching post for the cutest cat in the world.

It wasn’t too hard to put together so here is what I did, and maybe you can be inspired to make on too! Here are the basic steps. Watch the video at the end to see the whole process.

Time: 3 Hours Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy

The post has a wood base which I sawed to size. It’s a square shape with a small circle in the middle for the hard plastic pipe to be placed in.

With the square wooden base ready the next step is to cover it.

Cut a rug in half. It will be used to cover the base.

Staple it around the base using a staple gun and folding over the rug around the edges.

A circle needs to be cut around the rug in the middle where the whole in the wood is. The cardboard post needs to be inserted here.
