I really don't think cats get the attention they deserve, especially at the holidays. I see all sorts of stockings for dogs, presents for dogs…but rarely for cats! I think it is because cats are so independent and don't get their feelings hurt, LOL. I decided my kitties needed something on our tree this year. I am going to show you how quick and easy it is to make a DIY Cat Christmas Ornament so your furry friend isn't left out.
DIY Cat Christmas Ornament
There are so many crafts you can make that don't require special talents or skills. This DIY Cat Christmas Ornament falls into that category. It is just plain EASY and your cat will love what is inside! 😆
Supplies Needed for DIY Cat Christmas Ornament
Clear Plastic or Glass Ornament that you can fill
Embellishments of your choice
Letter Stickers if desired
How to Make a DIY Cat Christmas Ornament
Take your clear ornament and start off by putting your cat treats inside. I grabbed some Friskies Party Mix when I was at Dillons recently. These fit inside easily and my cats love them!
I grabbed these square ornaments because I knew my cat's name would look great on the outside. I used some letter stickers and spelled out my kitty's name (yes..one of my cats is named Salt :)). I also saw a cute pack of cat stickers and used the paw prints for some added flair!
I couldn't pass up the cat washi tape. I tore a couple of small pieces and stuck them on the ornament! Too CUTE!
The top of the ornament is a great place to add some ribbon and frills. Cut the ribbon to the desired length and tie it on the top. I also just used ribbon as the ornament hanger to keep it simple.
Christmas Morning Will be a Treat for the Cats
The perfect part of this DIY Cat Christmas Ornament is that it is HOLDING a special treat inside! So on Christmas morning you can take the ornament off the tree and you kitty can feel special that they weren't forgotten.
I am so glad I can find the cat food and cat treats I need at Dillons and I don't have to make another stop at a specialty store…especially this month!! It is only the busiest month EVER!
My kitties will have their regular morning breakfast….enjoying the filler-free yumminess of Fancy Feast Purely and then they will be ready to play in all the ribbons, bows and wrapping paper my kids are throwing all over the house! I can't wait to see how they react when I take their treat ornaments off the tree!
Even though my cats are over 13 years old…Friskies Party Mix never fails to liven them up with all that crunchy flavor!

This is a great idea- EXCEPT my cat already tries to eat the tree, without treats inside it! Haha- maybe Santa can hang this Christmas Eve. #client
Yes..my cats like to eat the tree too!
Kayla @ a paper arrow says
This is such a unique idea, and I love it. My cat would kill the tree if I did this! She already knocks down all the ball ornaments, so she’d definitely be after those treats. This is so cute though!!
It is definitely a treat ornament that Santa should hang on Christmas Eve, LOL!
Julie Maloney says
Yes! I love it! I’m definitely doing something for my cat. We just adopted her a few months ago and it will be our first holiday together. I’m going to make it special. It’s important for the kids as well. They love it.

My cat loves these cat treats. I don’t have room to put up a Christmas tree but I’d like to make an ornament to hang for her to play with until Christmas.
