DIY Craft Ideas for Dogs & Cats
Does spending a little extra time at home have you a tiny bit… bored? Don’t worry, we feel that too. Sometimes we just crave some serious doing. Luckily, we might’ve found a cure. Grab all of your crafting supplies, because we have some fun DIY projects for you!
This DIY has the potential to be so creative! You can cut a 22 x 22 inch square in any left over fabric, or use a standard bandana as your base. Customization is limitless - embroidery, tie-dye, and even making designs with some fabric paint would work. Shoot, break out those bedazzling kits! The bandana is your blank canvas, and you are the artist. Your pup will adore your final masterpiece, and will love getting to show it off on walks!
