I have 4 dogs, most of them are pretty ok with this whole stay-at-home thing, one is not.
I have been working extra hard to keep her busy and keep her mind working.
Anyhow, I was browsing Facebook yesterday and came across this brilliant idea!
It is perfect for Spring and actually looks pretty dang beautiful! I can do it with all of the dogs and the kids too!
Yes, I am going to do art with my dog and I’m pretty excited about it! Us crazy dog people right?
You can use your dogs painted paws to make a beautiful spring flower painting!
Now, Furiosa is pushing 130lbs, so this could go really bad. She is still a puppy and I can just imagine her storming through my house with giant painted paws!
So I’ll have to wait for a nice day and take this project outside for sure!
If you plan to do this, here’s what you’ll need:
- A dog’s paw
- Paint (Tempera or water-based paints are best as they tend to be non-toxic)
- Paint Brush
All you need to do is paint the paw of your dog (while also trying to keep them calm) and put it straight down onto the paper for a few seconds.
Once done, lift the paw straight up and wash it.
Once the paw parts are done, you can turn them into flowers using a paint brush. Add some stems, leaves and details to make them look like paw print flowers!
Have you ever done this? I cannot wait to give it a try!
