Use up those old skeins and balls of yarn and transform them into an adorable Yarn-Mache Pet Igloo for cats or dogs! Skip the chemical-laden commercial glues and use a DIY homemade recipe instead! The process is a bit of a mess but perfect for those chilly days indoors with the family. You need basic supplies, and it’s okay to use something a little different than I do. Just wing it and have a memorable day with the kids!
Build a DIY Yarn-Mache Pet Igloo with commonplace supplies:
- DIY homemade glue
- A large ring to use as a base form. If you don’t have a metal ring, cut some cardboard and form it. Tape it together for the base.
- Masking tape
- Plastic wrap
- Large balloon
- Lots of yarn
- Plastic or lots of newspaper to use for a dropcloth
- Plastic trays or large pieces of cardboard to form the bottom support
I do not think need further explanation, if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask! ;) Let me know if you also try to do something with this technique and show me your creations! <3 We’ve also got ideas for a convertible pallet dog house too!
