We’re crazy for cats and dogs (and birds!). If you’re a pet-parent, you probably give your baby a lot of attention, but there's no such thing as too much pet-love! Go overboard with one of these DIY pet projects:

Treat Jar.  Chalkboard paint is the gift that keeps on giving! The next time you whip up a batch of DIY chalkboard paint , consider making this unique treat jar from Treats a la Bark . Place it next to your human treat jar (aka cookie jar) or let it hang out solo on your counter – it’s pretty, so you don’t have to stash it away in the closet! Tip: Fill your jar with Treats a la Bark dog bites while you’re at it! They’re handmade in Australia and all-natural. 

Suitcase Bed. Does your pet need a place to lay his (or her) furry head? Instead of piling a bunch of blankets into an ugly heap in the corner, make this DIY pet-bed suitcase from My So Called Crafty Life. We can’t promise that this will stop them from stealing your spot on the bed, but it’ll look great in the corner!

Photo Pillows. If a photo of some “other” dog or cat just won’t cut it, that’s cool. We like the Real Deal Holyfield, too – that’s why we love these pet-photo pillows from Yellow Brick Home. There’s minimal sewing involved, and everyone that sits on your couch will see just how much you love your pet.

Profile Silhouettes. What’s better than a silhouette on your wall? A pet silhouette on your wall! Add a few of these beautiful DIY art pieces from Crafted Niche to your walls, and you’ll feel your pet’s love every time you walk into the room. Tip: If you don’t want every piece of art on your wall to be a picture of your pet, try another DIY way to decorate, too. 

Here are a few more DIY pet projects:
