DIY Christmas Tree Chew Toy for Guinea Pigs

Making your guinea pigs’ habitat more festive doesn’t have to be expensive! Here’s how to make a DIY Christmas tree chew toy out of cardboard.

Looking for the ULTIMATE Christmas Tree with ornaments?

Find a piece of plain cardboard and sketch of a tree. (hint: three triangles with the tip overlapping the bottom of the lower triangle)

Yes, plain cardboard is okay to be chewed on by guinea pigs. Do not use colored or laminated cardboard.

Cut out two trees.

Cut two thick slits in the trees. One from the bottom, the other from the top.

Slide the tree with the bottom slit ontop of the tree with the top slit. It should stand by itself!

Ta-da! Let your guinea pigs sniff and chew on their new toy.

You could also outfit this tree by adding a treat on top or hanging lettuce off the sides.

If you make this tree, tag me on social. I’d love to see it! @guineapigcarecenter
