|Share the love...||
|Craftster pets come in all shapes, sizes, and species, but one thing they have in common is that they are loved. Being Craftsters, we like to show our love by making awesome crafts for our loved ones, and our pets are no exception. We’ve combed the Pet Boards for the coolest, craziest, most awesome pet crafts we could find to share with you.|
As the caretaker of two slightly curmudgeonly cats and a very spirited puppy, I have been giving a lot of thought to pet crafts lately. Here are some of the awesome projects our members have made for these two most popular of species.
Many people think of dogs and cats first when it comes to pets. They may have the largest numbers, but when you look around the pet boards you will find mammals of all sorts, from horses to kittens, as well as reptiles, rodents, birds, fish, amphibians, even marsupials! It’s fun to browse the boards just to see the sheer variety of critters we care for and befriend.
Craftster companion animals are not limited to dogs and cats. Plenty of small animals are receiving crafty love, from rats, to hedgehogs, to sugar gliders, and more. Each species has its own needs and preferences, and clever Craftsters have found ingenious ways to make projects that give their little friends the happy life and well-appointed living space they deserve.
Here are some great projects for a horse and a gecko, as well as a lovely “crabitat”, proving that no animal is too large or too small to craft for. The horse reflector could be downscaled to use for night time dog walking safety, in addition to horse riding. Many of the projects here can be modified for use with other types of pets. Use the boards to inspire you to create new and different ideas!
In the last few years chickens have become increasingly popular pets. Even in the city, many people keep a small chicken coop for eggs and for pleasure. Check your city ordinances, as they are not permitted in all areas. Even chickens are getting in on the crafty action, as these awesome projects demonstrate!
