If there’s one thing we absolutely adore about crafting (okay, we all know there’s obviously more then one thing, but humour us for a moment), it’s the fact that we can craft for the people we love! Keep in mind, however, that when we talk about beloved family members and friends, we’re not actually talking about just humans, even if we used the word “people”. In addition to being huge DIY enthusiasts, we’re also animal lovers with spoiled pets! In fact, we’ll make our pets just about anything; little outfits, homemade snacks, and even extra comfortable custom beds.
Check out these 15 DIY pet beds that are so adorable (and fun to make) that we can hardly contain ourselves.
1. Doll bed for cats
If you’re handy with woodworking then you’re probably already familiar with making your own doll beds, since they’re such an easy beginner’s project to make. That’s means you’re all set for this adorable kitty cat idea! If you’re not big on wood related handiwork, however, you can still make this project for your feline friends with your customization skills instead. Check out Steve Jurvetson‘s adorable suggestion for turning a cute little wooden doll bed into a napping spot that’s perfect for small cats.
2. Old TV cat bed
As you’ve probably been able to tell if you’ve visited our site before, some of our very favourite DIY projects of any kind are the ones that upcycle something so it can be reused. Believe it or not, pet beds are no exception, even if all you have left to reuse is something high tech! We’re in love with the adorable juxtaposition present by a furry little cat sleeping inside a hollowed out television screen. See the TV bed idea on Atomic Attic!
3. Recycled sail dog bed
Do you come from a long line of sailors and you’re no exception to the family passion? Well, we’ve actually done a bit of sailing ourselves as well and one of our very favourite parts of the experience is sharing it with out beloved family dog. Imagine how excited we were, then, when we stumbled across this tutorial for a dog bed male from an old sail! See it in more detail on Ella Vickers.
4. Four poster cat bed from an upside down table
Perhaps you’re the kind of pet owner who loves to give your little buddy only the very finest things in life? Then you’ll naturally want your pets sleeping in a bed that’s just as posh and grand as your own! Ki Nausser knows exactly how you feel, so they’ve written this great tutorial for making a cat-sized four poster bed by flipping an old bench upside down and adding a cushion.
