With a generous nod to those animal pillows from Areaware (which we LOVE), artist and blogger Kim from Yellow Brick Home created a tutorial for those of us wanting photo pillows of our own precious pets. I know I would definitely prefer a snuggly Wrigley or Smash pillow to a random dog (no matter how cute). If you’re in the same boat and eager to see your pooch in pillow form, hit up Yellow Brick Home for the full how-to. While you’re at it, check out her custom pet portrait shop, too!
If you’ve ever wanted to try making treats for your dog, but didn’t know where to start, I’ve got the recipe for you! With a base of only two ingredients and endless ways to customize to your dog’s tastes, you’ll never go back to store bought dog biscuits again.
First, I can’t stop laughing at how ridiculously adorable this photo of Rocky the Maltese is. I mean really. Secondly, this is an awesome DIY idea!
Editor’s Note: You barked and we listened! DoggIY is a new monthly column here on Dog Milk where we feature modern DIY dog projects. We’ll be sharing everything from homemade treats to pet beds–and beyond!
We’re kicking our brand spanking new column off with a bang, a sexy birch plywood bang that is. This DIY dog crate coffee table is the brilliant creation of Erin Loechner and her husband Ken who, after a no-luck search for an affordable modern pet crate, decided to make their own. It’s also now the nap time location of Bernie and George (remember those cuties?)!
In the latest issue of Atomic Ranch magazine (yeah, I subscribe!) was a cute little story about a beagle’s new bed, made by her owners Joe Hernandez and Kim McAlexander of San Diego. The salvaged some vintage parts, mixed with materials bought at a home improvement store, and finished it off with a cushion that matched their newly-upholstered sofa. All for about $100. Read the whole story in Atomic Ranch.
Want to know what to do with all of those old t-shirts you have filling your drawers? Turn them into a fun “Tugga Toy” for your dog! This project is so simple, even the most DIY challenged can handle it. You’ll probably end up making one for your pooch, and ten more for every dog you know. You can find the easy how-to right here.
I got an enormous smile on my face the other day when I came across this “paw-ty,” via Sweet Designs, and I just had to share it here. Created by the incredibly talented design duo (Brittany and Sara) of One Charming Party, this darling dog party photo shoot is full of clever ideas and DIY projects you can do for your dog’s next birthday! That is, if you’re the type that celebrates your dog’s birthday. I am!
