DIY Cat Food Storage Hanger

Since mess-free is the general theme here, this DIY cat food storage hanger makes perfect sense. We typically dedicate half a shelf in a cabinet to just Stewie’s food. It’s important he, and all cats, get wet food every day. When his vet noticed he is prone to kidney issues, I was told to make sure he gets wet food once or twice a day. It’s imperative cats get as much water as possible from their food since they’re not naturally heavy drinkers.

In an effort to reclaim a bit of kitchen space, we created this cat food storage hangers using:

10.5″ x 14″ piece of an old t-shirt (jersey knit for optimal stretch)
1 hair tie
pretty ribbon
sewing machine

Watch this quick instruction video:


  1. Cut your fabric to measure 10.5″ x 14″.
  2. Fold over half an inch on each 10.5″ side and sew a seam to form a tube-like opening on either side.
  3. Cut a hair tie in half and fish through the tube at one end. (Use this safety pin technique for how to fix a drawstring. On the other end, fish a ribbon through.
  4. Tie both ends to form a tube.
  5. Folding in half long ways–right sides together–pin the long edges together and sew shut.
  6. Turn the whole thing right side out and you can now fill it with your Meow Mix Simple Servings.
  7. Use the ribbon at the top and tie to a hook wherever convenient in your kitchen.

  1. That is such a great idea! Cat food cans – and dog food cans, for that matter – are such a huge waste of space. I love the idea of being able to just hang them up and get them out of the way.

  2. I love the cat food holder. What a neat idea to dress up something that you have to have on hand.

    we don’t use wet foods at this point with either pet but this will come in handy as they get older and need it. Thanks for the tutorial.

  5. Such a smart DIY project! I have cat food stacked in my pantry and they always fall over. I’ll have to show my daughter, I’m sure she’d love to make this.

  6. ellen beck says:

    I buy cat food (wet) all the time of course but especially when it is on sale. I like the idea of these hangers. The last batch I bought 70 cans as I feed 2 inside and one outside cat wet food daily. And what is it with cats and cold food? I think they can tell when its been opened because if you even let it get to room temp or warm it for them, they like still know!

  7. What a great storage solution!
