DIY Christmas Goodies for Pets - Petrest

It’s nearly Christmas!! We’re getting excited here in the CPC office and have decided to share that excitement with you! DIY Christmas gifts!

Christmas is a time of family and gift giving, and pets are every bit a part of our family. So much so that they deserve their own presents! We had a quick look round online to find the best DIY Christmas gifts for your dog and cats. We’ve found everything from wearables to stockings, ornaments and bedding.  Just the stuff to make your pet feel totally involved!

Wearables

Is your feline fashion fierce? Maybe your dog is a dapper dame? Ok we’ll stop with the bad puns! Here are some really cool wearables we’ve found for you to give a try! Everything from “that’s smart” to “aww how adorable”!

This bandanna from Southern Wag is really easy to make and can be jazzed up with bells and tinsel to give your festive feline or Christmas canine an outfit to be proud of!

 

There’s something about these Holly Leaf Collars from  DIY Network that just makes us go “awww!”. Suitable for both dogs and cats, we’re sure you could make mini versions for all sorts of pets. Bonus points to the first bearded dragon in a holly collar!

 

Another one from Redheart.com, this doggie deer snood looks so cute, we couldn’t pass it up!

Decorations

We’ve got some cute DIY Christmas ideas for some pet themed decorations for you. Make them part of your family Christmas with these DIY ideas!

Lia Griffith has some really great felt ornament ideas to decorate your home. Once you’ve got the hang of them, you could create a whole felt animal scene!

 

You’ve got the fairy on the tree, bits of pasta decorations that the kids made at school and everyone has an ornament with their name on it. What about your dog? Here’s a great idea for a salt dough ornament made from the paw print of your dog (or cat if you can get hold of them!). Check out the instructions on Crafty Morning.

DIY Christmas Stockings & Beds

Everyone got a stocking for Christmas Eve? What, no stocking for Fido and Felix?! Ranging from easy right up to complex, we’ve got idea to keep even the craftiest of crafters happy! Give these stockings and beds a go.
