Hamster Maze
Want to make a cute hamster maze like this? HH member wenxin (aka dashingblue) teaches you how in 5 easy steps!


Hamster Maze

Step 1: Gather the necessary materials you will need. Two white boards, decorating papers (preferably smooth and waterproof), clear tapes, ruler, scissor, pen knife and glue!

Hamster Maze
Step 2: Glue and tape the two white boards together. This will be the base of the maze. Then stick the decorating paper onto it!

Step 3: Tape the decorating paper onto the board.

This is WAY too adorable and creative, wenxin! :) Thank you for sharing your idea for others and the polkadotted paper is “oh-so-cute” (as is your wee Mayo :) )

Thanks HoppingHammy! And thanks Wiffy for the lovely article posted here. =) It is a privilege to have my D.I.Y. hamster maze featured in HH Blog. =)

I am glad to share what I do for my pets with the rest of you, and I hope that this can give you all some inspiration and ideas to hand-make more things for your hamsters and your pets! Hehe~

Hey wenxin, thank you so much for sharing your valuable photos with us. I’m really a-mazed by your talent!(hee, corny pun) :P

And yeah, Mayo is totally adorable!! :D

I like this! It is very cute and I think the deco paper and the coloured board makes the maze look sweet. Usually mazes we see in contests are a boring grey or plain white.

Hey, hamster eater, xchipx, and hamster man. You guys are sick people and you should be ashamed of yourselves! I like Mayo and Wenxin for showing the world her design, but you boys just have to ruin it.

Hey there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using?
I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers
and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
Cheers, I appreciate it!
