I wanted to make a scratching post and instead of buying one. Instead of having to buy rope to wrap around it, I opted for burlap. I bought a couple big strong coffee bags for $1 ea. from a coffee house, and using an old round cutting board I had and a piece of wood I got from a bargain bin I came up with this. I sewed the edges of the burlap so they wouldn't fray, then used a staple gun to attach it to the post and base. I added a tassel of scrap fabric to entice the kitties to jump up on it, and put a slanted hole at the top to hold a cat charmer toy I made out of a chopstick and more fabric scraps. I also had enough burlap left to wrap two more planks of wood to make shelves for the kitties to sit on in the window. The two shelves and the scratching post cost me less than $5 to make, and most importantly the kitties are pleased.

I like! Looks like a post that my cat would actually use! Great idea!
