    *Hot glue and glue gun
    *Catnip (optional)

    Cut about 20-30 of 3.5inch/8.89cm cardboard strips. Roll up the first strip and tape it closed. This is the core.

    Make close creases on the subsequent strips to ensure a smooth, circular shape when wrapped around the core. Start taping and wrapping layers until desired width of trunk is reached. Tape off last strip.

    Cut a strip of cork sheet the same width as the cardboard. Break off the smooth end for a rough edge. Start breaking the cork off and gluing them one at a time, so that the broken pieces match up giving that ‘tree bark’ look.

    Cut out a circle of felt that fits the bottom of the trunk. Glue it down.

    Optional: Rub some catnip into the stump. The felt bottom should catch the catnip and prevent it from spilling everywhere.
