Dear Creatives, I was looking for some pet ideas when I came across pet portrait art, doggy bed diy’s, dog toy diy’s, bow ties… I want to make some healthy pet treats & maybe craft a project or two for the new puppy. After being inspired by this illustrative painting below I will have to try painting of our new Rex too. If you missed the post yesterday I shared our new puppy’s photo. Today I am sharing a round up of pet related arts & crafts, along with diy’s. At some point I’ll have to share some crafty cat diy’s too. But, today diy post is for the dogs!

Heather Mattoon art,  Charlie -8.5 x 11 -Matte Print - Dogs In Clothes by Heather Mattoon

First up this print is what is inspiring me to try & paint Rex. This was done by artist Heather Mattoon on Etsy   If that wasn’t cute enough you’ll have to check out all her prints of dogs & cats. Of course her Siamese Violet is one of my favorite cat illustrations.

pet bed, dog bed, side table diy dog bed

I love the idea of making a pet bed by re-purposing a piece of furniture or vintage suitcase. This one is from Better Homes & Gardens. You can see this side table pet bed {diy transformations from Better Homes & Gardens}


 I also love the idea of using a vintage suitcase you can see how at Houzz {diy vintage suitcase to pet bed tutorial}

dog bow tie

 Of course Rex will need a bow tie for those dapper events we attend this summer! I am sure to be making a bow tie. I will be on the look out for the perfect fabric & when I make it I’ll be sure to share it! This one is from Little Blue Feathers Etsy shop.


dog leash holder

I love this idea of having a pretty-mod  dog leash holder. I want to find all the pieces & put one together myself or break down and purchase one from this Etsy shop called AplombDesigns & here is a round up of a few diy doggie toys!
