DIY Bandana

1. Find the following items:
  • White Canvas Bandana 
  • Permanent Markers 
2. Decorate the Bandana
  • Use the provided permanent markers or other writing tools to decorate a bandana for the shelter animal to wear when they are adopted.

  • Helpful Tips:
    • Fold the bandana in half, corner to corner, to get an idea of what it will look like when it is worn by the shelter animal. 
    • Place a piece of paper or cardboard under the canvas to avoid the markers bleeding through.

Create a Dog Bed

1. Find the following items:
  • Blanket
  • Scissors (Not included in kit)
2. Fold the blanket in half
  • If you would like to make a bed for a smaller dog, fold the blanket in half and then in half again.
3. Cut the blanket along the folded edge.

(If you folded the blanket twice to make a bed for a smaller dog, be sure to cut along both folded lines).

4. Cut out the corners
  • Cut out a 4×4 inch square out of each corner of the blanket
5. Cut strips of fabric
  • Starting at a corner, cut strips of fabric, 1 inch wide and 4 inches deep.
  • Keep cutting along one entire edge
6. Tie double knots
  • Take the each piece that you cut and tie each one in a double knot.
  • Continue this process along the entire side of the blanket.
7. Continue the previous steps to finish
  • Continue the above steps on each side of the blanket, until you have finished all four sides.
  • You now have a dog tie blanket bed!
