    I went toy-makin CRAZY! *more*

    My fingers hurt, lol. I made several really nice toys today, though I think one of them is a bit big for a budgie, but it's really cool.

    This is my favorite one, I think.

    *three small wiffle balls
    *tons of beads and plastic toys
    *straws
    *jute
    * wooden beads
    *sand shaper toy for kids thingy
    *Big Goofy Straw thing
    *Chinese finger trap

    I started with the big plastic straw and took the wiffle balls. I put the wiffle balls on the bends in the straw. After that, I strung beads, straws, plastic toys, etc through the holes in the wiffle ball with my jute.

    I used the chinese finger trap, wooden beads, jute and Sand thingy to make the little foraging tray at the bottom. It was a long project but totally worth it.





    Blue Orb

    *three dog frisbees from the dollar store
    *jute to tie





    Big Wiffle Ball Madness

    *Baseball sized Wiffle Ball
    *Jute
    *Beads of all sorts
    *straws
    *wooden alphabet blocks
    *plastic pacifiers







    Warm Swing



    This is the one I made the other day. Just worked on it a bit.


    Smaller ones




    This one is not finished. I simply couldn't do anymore, lol. My hands and eyes started to hurt. I'll finish it tomorrow, probably. It's similar to the other one, I just used one big ball and one little instead. I'll use one for the cage and one for the stand.

    I will be watching my mail box for some awesome toys (I have Quakers, Cockatiels, lovebirds, Budgies, and Conures) THANKS

    I'm just kidding

    you did a great job I keep buying stuff to make toys have visions in my head and that's all the further that goes once i start I become dumb founded - I am not a creative person at all

    But now i see what I can do with that cup full of multi-color straws I bought for my kids a while back and they haven't even put a dent in it (i think it was a bag of 200 they've used like 4 lol)

    LOL, I've made two more and I've got the supplies to make a huge swinging foraging tray tonight. Just waiting for the battery on our dremel to charge. Hehe. This is going to be the most ridiculously spoiled budgie in the world.

    The first toy probably cost a couple bucks at the most. I bought the sand thing at the dollar store two for a dollar. The wiffle balls come in a 16 pack, I think, for a $1.88 at Walmart. I used three. Then there were the beads, dollar store baby shower accents, and jute. The funny straws came in a four six pack at the dollar store. Not a whole lot of money went into that one. The one that cost the most was the giant wiffle ball one.
