Craft Of The Day: Turn Plain Wooden Bowls Into Adorable Pet Dishes

As pet owners, making our four-legged friends happy makes us happy too. But, to be honest, many of the dog and cat accessories available don't exactly match the decor in our homes. So, when we saw today's Craft Of The Day, we thought these etched wooden dishes from A Beautiful Mess could be a modern and stylish alternative to the boring looking bowls we normally keep out for our furry friends.

We think these dishes are so hip we actually wouldn't mind keeping them out on the floor. The cool part is that you can etch whatever phrase you'd like on them, whether it's "eat" and "drink" or "I <3 Fido." You just need wooden bowls, sticker letters and a wood burning tool. For a full tutorial on how to create these crafty dishes and other great projects, head over to A Beautiful Mess.
