  • 2 oz organic witch hazel (or 2 tablespoons epsom salts substitute)
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda.
  • 15 drops eucalyptus essential oil *
  • 15 drops lemon lemon essential oil *
  • 15 drops pepper essential oil *

* Make sure to use pure, non-standard, high quality essential oils.

2. Simple nine stitch denim dog toy.

What will you need

  • 925 “denim strips.
  • A rubber band.

Instructions.

A) Attach your denim strips to one end using elastic. Leave 5 “fabric on top of the elastic.

B) Close the sharp end of the denim straps to a door or keep it for you from a friend.

C) Divide the strips into three sets of three.

D) Start breeding! Cross the set of strips on the top left of the middle pair, then do the same with the right strips. Keep the top as tight as possible.

E) Continue until you have 5 “non-braided fabric left.

f) Separate one set of strips and fasten the rest of the non-braided fabric.

g) Tie two of them in a knot, then wrap them around the other two sets and tie them in another knot.

h) Remove the rubber band and repeat the above step on the opposite end.

3. Woolen pet blankets.

What will you need

  • 2 6.5 ‘woolen sheets.
  • Ruler
  • Scissors

Instructions.

  • Place the woolen sheets on top of each other on the floor or on a large table, facing out to the right. Make sure the edges match, and cut off any extra fabric.
  • Using your ruler, measure 3 “to 6” squares on each corner of the sheets. The size you choose will be the size of the edge of your blanket.
  • Repeat for each corner, making sure to cut both layers of wool.
  • Cut strips of fabric along the edges of your blanket – this is your edge. Each strip should be the length of your corner squares, and can be anywhere from 1 “to 2” wide.
  • Tie fringe strips on each using a snag square knot (like the knot you use to tie shoes). Do not try to squeeze the cloth by pulling the knots too hard.
  • Fight the desire to have a complete blanket for yourself!

4. DIY doggy toothpaste.

What will you need

  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil.
  • * Teaspoon finely chopped mint leaves.
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda.

Instructions.

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and store in a covered container at room temperature.

5. Recycled pet bed.

What will you need

  • Sweater
  • Pins
  • Polyester filling
  • Square or circular pillow (optional)
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread or sewing machine

Instructions.

Step 1: Choose a sweater.

Choose an old wool or sherpa sweater that you never wear. If the neck of the sweater is high, cut it off and set it aside for future patch jobs.

Step 2: Sew the neck.

Turn the sweater from the inside out and sew a straight line just below the neckline to close it. You can use the sewing machine or the thread color of your choice by hand. When you’re done, pull the sweater out to the right.

Step 3: Sew the sweater from side to side.

Use the pins to mark the straight line from side to side on the front of your sweater. You can take the sweater inside out for this stage to ensure a better finish. Sew on top of pins or just below. Remove the pins and pull out the sweater on the right side.

Step 4: Fill the sleeves of the sweater.

Fill the arms with the filling, making sure it is packed as tightly as possible without pulling the material. Leave an inch of fabric on the sleeveless cuffs so you can sew them together.

Step 5: Sew the arms together.

Tuck the fully filled sleeve cuffs into the other so that they completely overlap. Sew the arms as securely as possible along the edge of the visible cuff.

Step 6: Cut and discard the bottom of the sweater.

Spread the sweater with the arms wrapped around the top. Using your pins, mark the outer edge of the arms. Cut along the line of pins, making sure you cut both layers of fabric.

Step 7: Fill the body of the sweater.

Using the rest of your luggage or pillows, place the body of the sweater between the arms.

Step 8: Sew the arms over the body.

To complete your DIY pet bed, turn the sweater over and sew the sleeve sleeves to the body as securely as possible. Turn the bed over and give it as a gift to your cat or little dog.

6. Kitty Condo.

What will you need

  • Cardboard box
  • T-shirt.
  • Rubber band

Instructions.

Wrap the T-shirt around the box, and tie the sleeve holes with a rubber band. Use box cutters or scissors to cut holes in the box where the T-shirt neck is. Use warm glue to decorate the box with cat toys, flowers and baskets.

This DIY pet product is a fun, creative way to celebrate Earth Day with your pet companions. Have fun, and be sure to send us pictures of your completed projects!
