Today my dog Sport and I are very excited to share some creative pet gift wrapping ideas. We made wrapping paper and came up with some very fun ideas for pets to give their families.
Sport and I have been busy getting ready for Christmas. He (we) decided it would be fun to do some Christmas shopping for everyone in the family. And then he (we) decided it would be fun to make some wrapping paper that was obviously from him! Fortunately, Sport agreed that I could share some creative pet gift wrapping ideas with you.
I will be honest that at first, I had what I thought was a brilliant idea.
Sport (I mean me) thought it might be fun to make wrapping paper by putting paint on Sport’s paws and letting him walk all over butcher paper. But I started thinking of what would really happen. I am pretty confident that would consist of Sport running all over our back patio and “forever leaving his footprints” everywhere.
Thank heavens I decided that was a bad idea.
So I bought this adorable dog paw print stamp instead. I got it from Amazon (it costs less than $7) and it can still be delivered before Christmas.
Since I averted one disaster by using a stamp instead of Sport’s paws, I decided to tempt another one by hosting a Facebook Live with Sport and me today! We (hopefully only me) will be making wrapping paper and showing all of the gift ideas he (we) found for everyone in the family.
I will likely have some fresh chicken in my pocket to bribe him to sit next to me. Wish me luck, because I think this is going to be very interesting. I am guessing he will last on the couch for about one minute.
Join Me and Sport For a Live Video Today
You can watch Sport and me on Facebook Live today at 10:00am PST (12:00 noon CST, 1:00pm EST) here.
I will post the video here once the live broadcast is over.
Look how adorable this wrapping paper turned out. And just so you know, it took me about ten minutes to make a big sheet of wrapping paper.
Which is a good thing since I have teamed up with some amazing bloggers to feature a thirty-minute craft.
Once a month, Janine from Happy Happy Nester, Karianne from Thistlewood Farms, Christina from The DIY Mommy, Jen from Tatertos and Jello, and me, will be sharing a 30 minute craft. Today’s theme is gift wrapping.
All of their beautiful 30-minute ideas are below. Be sure to swipe down to see them.
Imagine that I am the only one that thought of wrapping gifts for pets. Haha.
What You Need to Make Gift Wrapping Paper for Your Pet
Place the paint in a paper plate and use the plate as a “stamp pad”. Stamp periodically on the paper in a haphazard way.
I did a reverse of white paper and tan-colored paint and I love how it came out.
Sport loves these Plush Toys and he (we) might have ordered a few for him too.
Of course, it’s a surprise and he doesn’t know it yet.
I will share my favorite gift on the video today that Sport bought for Andrew and Charlotte. But just so you know, here are some of the gifts he (we) bought.
Chuckit Mini Ball Launcher for his brothers
Earth Rated Dog Poop Bags for his environmentally conscience brother
Titos (aka Totos) Vodka bottle plush toy for his mother (who likes Vodka Tonics)
Large Dog Dental Treats for his mom
White Claw (aka Paw) Dog Toy for Charlotte because she likes White Claws a lot
Fluff and Tuff Toys for Dug, his cousin
Giant Lint Roller for Dave (dad) because he always finds dog hair on his clothes
I can’t wait for you to meet Sport today. He has quite the personality and he (we) is a pretty smart Christmas shopper. Almost all of the gifts he (we) bought are for him,
Such a smart puppy.
