You don’t need to worry about your kitten pouncing on your yarn or otherwise trying to “help” your crafting efforts. With pet-friendly projects, your fur baby just might find a new appreciation for your art. From crafting a pet portrait on canvas to DIY-ing pet-friendly home décor and storage units, every pet lover can spend some time trying DIY crafts and creating a better home for your pet.
Pet-proof your home.
Whether your dog has taken to chewing on your mattress or your cat is constantly knocking over your new plant, take some time to make your home a little more pet-friendly and save your more valuable appliances along the way. For things you want to keep out of reach but accessible, consider using a self-storage unit. Spend some time reviewing a size guide for storage units to find the right storage unit size for your needs. With those valuable in a storage unit, Spot will stay safer—and so will your stuff, no matter how much space (or how few square feet) you need. If a storage unit is not in your budget, try some DIY organization solutions for belongings that aren’t so pet-friendly and optimize your new storage space.
Make your typical pet products more appealing.
No one wants to spend their “me time” looking at a litter box—but a fashionable litter station or kitty closet can make it more bearable. Improve your pet’s mealtime posture with an elevated platform for their food and water dish, or label them with your favorite acrylic paint to differentiate between animals. If you can never find the leash before heading out on a walk, an eye-catching hook or entryway station can save you stress. DIY projects are a great way to personalize pet products with a touch of style, making your home feel more fashionable while staying pet-friendly along the way.
Keep your pet occupied.
DIY pet toys can keep them busy so you can stay focused on other responsibilities. For example, put together an upcycled puzzle toy to disperse your chihuahua’s treats with an added challenge. A Paw Tree direct sales enrollment pack can make refills even easier, too. Keep plenty of treats on hand and, when you spread the word about PawTree products to fellow pet lovers, you can even earn possible income from sales and referrals inspired by your love for your pet. More snacks for Scooby and extra funds to fuel your crafts? When it comes to partnership opportunities, PawTree has plenty of bonuses.
Take a DIY approach to feedings.
If you’ve ever faced a Shih Tzu with a stomachache, you’ve probably heard you should serve them chicken broth, and a bit of rice to soothe their symptoms. Whatever your reasoning, cooking for your pet can be immensely rewarding. Spend some time researching DIY pet food recipes and ideas for your dog, cat, or other pets. They usually include guides depending on if your pet is small, medium, or large making sure the portions are the right size. Consult your veterinarians to make sure they’re getting the best nutrients in every bite and be ready for your best friend to show you even more unconditional love.
Immortalize your furry friend.
Open your favorite digital art program or put aside some time to browse Paint Loose for everything you’ll need for a more traditional art project, like canvas, acrylic and oil paints, and other such materials. Try to create a realistic depiction of Max in pencil or put your cartoon-creation skills to the test and make a more abstract illustration in watercolor. Frame your favorites so every guest who enters your home knows who really rules the roost, or hang a completed canvas over your desk to bring a smile to your workday.
DIY projects are perfect for pet lovers and pet parents alike. From artwork starring your pet to a homemade toy, the results can entertain you and your fur baby through your creative process and for a long time to come.
