I thought my guinea pigs, Pixie and Zinnea, needed a little Christmas cheer this year and since tradional christmas decorations aren't safe for them I decided to make my own.






The wreath bed...


The holly hammock...




and the present hidey. 

The girls have decided that they prefer to flatten the present and sleep on top...silly little pigs. Oh well, its all washable I suppose.  I also put christmas lights and garland (well out of their reach of course) on the wall behind their cage.

Thanks for looking!

wow! what lucky piggies! they look so happy with their home, so cute!

I especially love the pressie - my pig would love that sort of idea. 
What material did you use? 
and would u mind if i made something similar for my girl? she so loves cozy places to hide and i reckon that would be right up her street

Thanks everybody! Smiley

I always use fleece for my piggy projects because it washes very easy, its soft and it pulls the moisture down away from the pig when...you know, they pee while they're sleeping.   You can always find those cheap fleece blankets for like $5 in discount stores so I just use those.

jsy_duck, I don't mind at all if you make something similar for you pig. Feel free to spread the piggy cheer.  Grin

You have such cute piggies!!  I love the toys you made them, that really inspires me to make a hidey house for my piggies, possibly not looking like a present, but that is super cute! and I really love the wreath bed, does that get alot of use?
Oh how I love my piggies!
