We ALL want to spoil our furry friends, but sometimes toys can be expensive. Do-It-Yourself toys are the perfect way to give your cat fun (and even yummy) toys without having to go the store. The best part about them is that you don't have to be skilled or crafty to make them and they can be done in the comfort of your own home. Try these 6 DIY toys from One Crazy House!

1. Wine Cork Toys: These toys can be made by taking the wine corks you have laying around and sticking string or feathers into them. They make the purr-fect toy for your cat to toss around!
