Cure Your Cat’s Cabin Fever with a Flutter Wand


| 1/30/2018 11:46:00 AM


I created my first Flutter Wands years ago for a series of interactive artwork. I decided to alter the design slightly to come up with a fun toy for our cats. Back then, wire hangers were very easy to come by. Hopefully you will be able to find one without too much trouble so you can create your own Flutter Wand.

Materials needed

Materials you’ll need:

1 wire clothes hanger
1 piece of strong fabric approximately 14” x 7”
14” strands of yarn (optional)
14” of nylon webbing, twill tape, or other binding material
1 piece of fabric approximately 5” square (remnants or repurposed fabric is perfect here)
stuffing material (fiberfill works, but I love reusing cotton stuffing from vitamin bottles)
needle and thread
scissors and/or rotary cutter
pliers
