At the end of May, Michael and I decided to adopt a sweet kitten and we named her Juniper. Juniper is just about 5 months old and is as energetic as ever! When we were looking for a kitten to adopt, it was very important to me that we found an upbeat and unique kitten who loved to play and was very cuddly, as well. Well, that’s Juniper! She’s the complete package for us. She’s a ton of fun, and I’m so thrilled to finally introduce her to you all today!
Aside from running around our apartment like a crazy kitten, Juniper also loves to model. I’m not kidding! Every time I take out my camera to either snap some photos of her or for the blog, she always poses and tries to get in the way. She’s just too cute.
Today, I am sharing an adorable DIY that I was so excited to do for Juniper! It’s a floral wall art piece of her name. I think it captures her personality quite well! She’s totally enjoying the new addition to her little kitten corner of our living room. This DIY is really easy, making it the perfect project to do for your own kitten or pet! It makes for a great gift, too!
- Hot glue gun & glue
- Poster board
- Different colored faux flowers
Step One: After gathering my materials, the first step I took to this project was sketching out and cutting out Juniper’s name the way I wanted it. The importance of this step was huge in that I wanted all of the letters connected instead of separate. This makes for an easier way of hanging the wall art once it’s finished.
Step Two: I took all of the smaller bundles of flowers and cut the entire stems off, as I only wanted the tops of the flowers on the project. I decided to stick to oranges, purple, blue, and ivory, as the majority of Juniper’s toys and bed were those colors already. I wanted to stick with a consistent theme!
Step Three: I decided on how I wanted to lay the flowers onto the poster board. This was tricky at first, as I was taking a random approach to placing the flowers down. If you follow me on Snapchat, you got to see that first had as I was creating this! But then my genius of a husband asked me if I tried to just do the letters in separate colors…and voila! He’s the best.
Step Four: After I got the flowers into place, I started to hot glue them onto the poster board. This was one of the fun parts for me, as the whole piece really started to take permanent shape!
Step 5: Once the glue was all dry, I went through and cut off any excess paper that was showing the best that I could. After I was quickly finished with that, it was ready to be hung on the wall in her kitten corner!
Here’s the big reveal…Juniper’s little kitten corner! Having her name above her area definitely brings it all together. She loves it! While she loves her kitten corner, what she loves even more is a clean litter box at all times.
Juniper is the first kitten we have ever had at anytime in our lives, so like most things, we learn as we go. We did a great job at picking out a durable enclosed litter box, but knew we needed something even better to help eliminate odors. So, when I was at Target the other day (like usual), I picked up the Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System. The Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System is not only convenient to use, but is discreet as well! It is easy to fit in any living space, and is the perfect way to dispose of and eliminate any unwanted odors.
One Litter Genie® Pail refill contains 7 bags, each bag holding approximately 14 days worth of litter (in a single cat home) and it’s unique air-tight design helps keep odors in, even when opening the lid. Being able to lock the odors away in just 3 simple steps has been a huge game changer for us. 1.) Scoop 2.) Open Lid 3.) Pull Handle.
TIPS FOR DEVELOPING A CLEANING SCHEDULE:
I know what it’s like to lead a busy life and how important convenience is. In addition to the greatest that is the Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System, I have come up with some tips for when developing a cleaning schedule for your kitten corner.
- Choose a set time frame you’ll clean the litter box each day. We choose to clean Juniper’s once we’re home from work.
- Make it a point to tidy up any toys that have been torn apart from intense play times.
- Remember to vacuum around the litter area of the kitten corner, as it can be easy to miss a few peebles here and there. We vacuum Juniper’s area every 2-3 days.
So, there you have it – a little bit about this cute kitten, her new wall art, and our cleaning system! If you have a cat, have you tried out the Litter Genie® Cat Litter Disposal System yet? What are some tips you have for keeping a clean cat corner?
