DIY Gift Ideas for the Pet Lovers in Your Life

  • 2 min read

There’s nothing quite like a handmade gift, especially when it’s centered around a passion in life.

And pets are a passion!

So, for the people in your life who love their pets as much as any other family member, we’ve got the perfect gift ideas for you.

In this article, we’re sharing four simple wood-burning gift ideas that you can create in just minutes. 

Thanks to the Scorch Marker, pyrography has never been easier. Let’s show you how.

1. Kitty Cat Coasters

You can never go wrong with a coaster.

Practical and adorable, these kitty cat coasters will be appreciated by any cat lover.

Make sure to sand each coaster to at least 500-grit before burning with the Scorch Marker, to achieve the smoothest, cleanest finish.

We stepped outside the box with this craft and chose square-shaped coasters and tear-out stencils.

It came out way better than we could have imagined!

2. Good Dog Leash Hanger

Another super practical gift that will make any dog-lover feel seen!

There’s not much a pup loves more than his leashes and collars, and this “Good Dog” hanger is the perfect way to display them.

For this craft, we took advantage of some of the cutest little dog hooks on Etsy, applied them to a sturdy piece of birch wood, and then wood burned a cute embellishment with the Scorch Marker.

I just love the way this project turned out, and I think any dog lover will too. 

A step-by-step for it can be found on TikTok.

3. Pet-Themed Mail

Surprisingly enough, the Scorch Marker doesn’t just work on wood.

In fact, this tool can be combined with canvas, denim, and even paper.

That’s where we got the inspiration for this next pet-themed craft.

While we can’t always spend the holidays with those we love, receiving heartfelt mail is the next best thing.

We loved using the Scorch Marker to customize and design this cat-themed envelope. 

Pro Tip: To prevent your stencils from ripping the paper, try adhering them to fabric a few times first to reduce the stickiness.

Then, use it on paper like normal.

4. Pet Lovers Wall Hanging

Not every gift has to have a practical use.

Sometimes, a pet person just likes to display their love for their furry friend.

For that, we have the wall hanging!

This is the perfect, rustic way to celebrate any pup in your life.

And the simple design matches any interior style.

Just make sure to seal your project with a high-quality wood finish, like Shellac, to help the wall hanging survive scuffs, scratches, and other wear and tear.
