Socktopus - A DIY cat toy from a sock!

I am as frugal as they come and for my sisters birthday I thought I would treat her cats as well.

Socktopus Instructions


  • Take a sock
  • Stuff said sock with carrier bags
  • Insert cat nip in and around carrier bags
  • Tie/ sew shut ( I used a rubber band) 
  • Cut sock up vertically to create 'legs'
  • Attach googley eyes (or if your cheap sew on buttons)
  • You have created a Socktopus!
If you create more than one socktopus you get Socktopi!


I have seen more advanced ones on Etsy and Pinterest but I don't think the cats mind.
