DIY Kitty Castle as seen on Melissa Louise

I am totally in love with this DIY colab by Astrid of SP4NK blog and Baba Souk ! A little while back I added it to my last weeks links post over on my personal lifestyle and design blog  and threatened to make Sullivan one… Baba Souk saw that tweet and challenged me to it, and oh man I am glad they did. Sullivan LOVES it and it adds abit of quirky fun to our lounge space!

Here’s what you will need:

1 || Cardboard boxes

2 || A Zana scrap pack

3 || Duct Tape

4 || Hem Tape

5 || A black marker

6 || Craft knife

7 || Timber Dowl

This is just a basic idea of how to assemble your very own Kitty Castle, but the creative direction is totally up to you. Let’s get started-


Using your Zana scrap pack prepare your flag. 


Mark and cut where you want your openings to appear. Sullivan is so curious, he was involved in the entire process… 


I outlined the edges of the openings with black marker to make them more of a feature. 


Using more of your scrap pack create bunting. Use hem tape to “glue” down the tringles. You will notice I went for a monochrome look with a hint of gold. I just love that for little boys, even if they are Kitties. 


 and there you have it!

Sullivan loves it so much, he plays in it by sticking his paws out the bottom holes and I have lined the inside with his blanket, he likes to takes long snoozes in his castle. 

Give it a go and tag me on twitter or Instagram, I would love to see your creations- @zanaproducts / @melissalouisen
