You may recall that one of the items on my 13 Project list was to make and donate fleece blankets to a local rescue. Well, I finally sat down over the weekend and got started making these cozy little blankets. I’m only about halfway through the 25 I plan on donating to Friends of Animals Utah, but trust me when I say that these are insanely easy!! If you can use scissors, you can make these. Heck, get some friends together and make a night of it! Your local shelter animals will thank you. Interested? Let’s get started!
After complaints from my husband that our dogs’ treats were taking over our pantry (it’s kinda true), I decided it was high time to do something about all those boxes and bags of goodies. I knew I wanted treat jars that looked good — something I could proudly display on my counter — and didn’t cost a lot. With those two rules in place, I ultimately decided to just get a bit crafty and make my own. And you know what? These DIY etched glass treat jars are awesome! And easy! And totally customizable! Wanna make your own? I’ll show you!
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!
How cool is this DIY indoor dog house?? The instructions are in Dutch (hooray for Google Translate), but it’s a pretty easy, straight forward project. Check out 101 Woonideeën if you care to give it a go!
(Also? This project from Scandinavian Deko is pretty similar and could definitely be used as a dog house!)
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?)!
