Animal Art: Creative Ideas for DIY Pet Projects

Most owners show their love for their pets by displaying their photos — and that’s totally normal! However, if you want to stand out from other pet owners, you must be a bit more creative with how you put up your pet’s photos. From cute collages to old-fashioned Polaroids, try out these simple yet inspired pet photo displays!

Turn Your Pet Photos into Polaroids

Now, you can display more than one photo of your furry friend! Turn your pet’s pictures into Polaroids and then hang them up using a piece of twine and wooden clothespins. There is a Polaroid frame on Photoshop that allows you to create your own Polaroid photos. Once your pictures have been printed out, you can use either a photo frame or a cork board to make your display even better. For more detailed instructions, you can check out this tutorial from Sincerely Kinsey.

Get Artsy with a Photo Wall

Photo Wall

If you want to make a major impact with your pet portraits, go big with a photo wall! Compile your favorite photos of your pet on Photoshop or pick your favorite one, print a poster-sized image of it, and then turn it into a huge piece of canvas art. With a matte texture and classic canvas look, your photo wall is sure to catch attention. You can check out this DIY photo canvas for step-by-step instructions.

Create a Silhouette

Pet Silhouette

Although it isn’t a complete picture, a silhouette offers a minimalist and timeless take on displaying your pet’s likeness. If you don’t want a black and white print, you can use other colors to brighten your design. This comprehensive silhouette how-to from The Creativity Exchange is easy to follow, especially for DIY-ers who are just starting out.

You can go for a traditional framed pet picture, but where’s the fun in that? Whether through a silhouette poster or a huge photo wall, let your love for your pets shine through with these simple and creative ideas!
