DIY Dog Crafts

Pawesome Blossoms

Here is what you will need to make this artwork:

  • A paint canvas or paper
  • Green acrylic paint
  • A paint color of your choice for the flowers (also acrylic)
  • A paint brush
  • A sharpie or black paint
  • A bowl of water
  • Paper towels

Painting supplies

For this craft, start by placing some acrylic paint on your pet’s paws. If you are crafting indoors this is a two person job! One to hold the pup’s paw and one to paint.

Does your pet have furry paws? You may want to trim their hair for a clearer paw print.

Place paint on your pup's paw to start the dog craft.

Press their paw onto the canvas or paper to make the flowers.

You can have as many flowers as you like on your painting.

Add green stems with your paint brush.

Once the flowers are dry, add any additional touches with a permanent marker or paint.

Ta-da! All done!

This is a very simple craft! Here is what you need:

  • A paint canvas or paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • A paint brush
  • Sharpie
  • Bowl of water
  • Paper Towels

Simply place your dog’s painted paw onto the canvas.

Clean off their paws.

Once your paw print is dry write their name on the canvas in sharpie.
