DIY Paw Print Projects

Capture your pet’s unique paw print to create a meaningful keepsake with one of these three super simple DIY projects.

Pet-Safe Ink Print


Create a work of art with your pet’s paw prints using a non-toxic dye. Mix one package of Kool-Aid with only just enough water to make a Kool-Aid paste. If it gets too watery, you won’t be able to adhere it evenly to your dog’s paw. Spread the paste across a solid surface, and dip your dog’s pad into the dye. Alternatively, if you have a patient dog, use a paint brush to coat his paw evenly with the dye mixture. Once his paw is coated, press it onto a canvas or sheet of paper—just be sure to avoid any glossy-textured papers or else the Kool-Aid paste will smear. Use this technique to create an abstract print with multiple overlapping paws, or do a single paw print and embellish with your pet’s picture or name. Allow it to dry completely before framing or hanging. Use a pet-safe grooming wipe to remove the Kool-Aid, though if your dog does lick a bit of it, it’s perfectly safe.

Trace and Color


For a fun, kid-friendly project, have your child trace her foot on a large sheet of paper. Then, lure your dog next to your kiddo’s footprint and help her trace your dog’s paw print on the same sheet. Let her decorate the side-by-side footprint and paw print with age-appropriate art supplies. Repeat this exercise annually to track your child’s growth alongside her furry best friend.

Dough Paw Print


In a large bowl, mix one cup of flour with one cup of salt. Add a half cup of water and knead until you have a large, smooth ball. On a piece of wax paper, press the dough into your desired shape—use cookie cutters to create a heart or a round circle, or use Christmas shapes if you’d like this to become an ornament. Set the shaped dough on the wax paper onto the floor, and gently but firmly press your dog’s paw into the dough. If you’d like to turn the print into an ornament or a wall hanging, use a straw to create a hole at the top of the dough. Then, bake the print at 200-degrees Fahrenheit for two to three hours. Overcooking can cause it to crack, so check regularly and remove from the oven as soon as it’s dry. Optional variation: Add food coloring to the water prior to kneading to create a colorful ornament.

DIY Craft - Paw Print Wall Art

A fresh and modern studio space has been in the works at my apartment, and I am happy to say that everything is starting to fall into place, slowly but beautifully. I have been taking my time and trying not to rush the process too much because I want to ensure that the end result looks fantastic and feels cheerful and cozy. Even though I would love nothing more than to do a little Bewitched nose wiggle and have the entire room polished up and magazine ready! Who wouldn’t though, right?

I’ve turned to lots of other blogs and magazine features for inspiration and have fallen in love with so many of them. Of course I want to be “in” with the current trends, but for me, it’s also important that the items in my new workspace have meaning, memories, and represent who I am and who my little family is as well. The space can’t all be one big clone of a room found on Pinterest! So my dog, Coco Bean, and I had a little painting party and designed some of our own custom prints for the walls. I’m thrilled to share our project with you today. Let’s get started!


• Paper of your choice (I recommend a thicker weight)

• Paintbrush

• Non-toxic washable paint (I used Martha Stewart’s Craft Paint)

• Fine tip ink pen

• Frame

• And, of course, your dog!

Handy Prepping Tips

Paint and dogs… Who else can see a mess coming from a mile away? To prevent a Doggie-Picasso painted apartment, it would be wise to spread out an old sheet to protect your floors and furniture, or opt to do this project in the grassy outdoors.

Have a bowl filled with a hint of dish soap and warm water at the ready to wash off those little paws. The Martha Stewart paint washed off of Coco’s paw in seconds, making for an easy clean up.

Having a towel handy to dry off the clean paws was helpful. If you’re outside, air-drying is always an option too.


STEP 1 Choose the paint colour you want your paw print to be. I had a hard time deciding, so Coco and I practiced with a few different colours before we landed on black. That is what is great about this DIY—the options are endless!

STEP 2 Take the paintbrush and carefully paint your dog’s paw pad. If your dog has ticklish paws, you may need an extra set of hands!

STEP 3 Gently press you dogs paw onto the designated paper. Press and hold for a couple of seconds and try to lift the paw straight up to ensure zero smudging. Let the paw print dry for about 10 minutes.

STEP 4 While the print is drying, wash your dog’s paw in the soapy water, then towel dry.

STEP 5 Once the paw-print is dry, you can use a fine tip ink pen to write your dog’s name and age underneath.

STEP 6 Frame and hang!

For families with young puppies, this would be a great project to revisit throughout the year. It would be an extraspecial keepsake to have your puppy’s first year of growing documented into a work of art with their age written under each paw print.

Not every paw print will turn out perfectly, but I think that is what makes it special and unique. You can see that in Coco’s paw print her hair also made some ink marks, making it look like the paw print of a wild animal, which is kind of awesome. She’s pretty wild sometimes, so it’s a perfect reflection!

The end result is a wonderful touch in any room in your house and something you can cherish forever.

Easy DIY Paw Print Art

I can’t believe I am doing a second DIY post in less than a month. I think that puts me at about 3 DIY posts in the past two years! I’m one of those people who wants to be crafty, but really just fails every time. However, I was pretty pleased with the result of this one.

Mauja and Atka steal the hearts of many people they meet. True to their breed, they form very strong bonds with certain people, usually their family members. However, sometimes they form an amazing bond with someone outside of their family.

This was especially true for Atka.

Atka bonded with our friend and dog trainer, Jessica. Sometimes, I think he likes her more than me! 😉 He would prance and whine when he knew we were going to visit her and could even smell if she was or wasn’t there. He completely misbehaved with her, but it was adorable.

When we found out we were moving, I knew I wanted to do something special for Jessica but couldn’t think of anything. Obviously, a picture of her and Atka would be sweet, but I didn’t feel like it was even close to representing their bond. Ultimately, I decided to create the following paw print art.


Have you ever wanted something special to remember or celebrate your pet? Check out this super easy tutorial to create your own paw print art!

  • Picture frame
  • Sturdy paper (I used thick, scrapbook paper)
  • Non-toxic paint
  • Stencil (if you struggle with your handwriting like I do!)
  • Paint brush
  • Favorite photo
  • A way to trim your paper to the appropriate size

How To Do It

1.Trim your paper to the appropriate size. I used a 5″ x 7″ matted frame, so that’s how large I cut my paper. Pro tip – make sure your paper is actually big enough for your dog’s paw! I started out way too small… 😉

3. While having your dog in a comfortable position (I had Atka “relax”), apply some paint to your dog’s paw pads.

5. Add your dog’s name or other text, if you’d like, to the paper. I used a stencil, but get creative!

6. Let dry for a few hours and then place in your frame.

7. Bask in the glory of your creativeness 😉

Overall, it’s a fairly easy DIY project and I’m really pleased with how the paw print art turned out. If I can do it, you can do it!

Pin It!

DIY Puppy Paw Print - Homemade Four and Salt Paw Print Mold (Crafts for Your Dog)

As dog parents, it seems as though our lives revolve around constantly taking pictures of every little cute thing our dogs do. Is your puppy carrying a stick twice his size? INSTAGRAM IT. Is he tracking his cute little dog paw prints all over your white carpet? SNAPCHAT IT. And while these are great ways to capture fond memories, wouldn’t you like something a little more lasting and creative?

That’s where DIY dog paw print crafts come in. Using pet-safe materials, you can create beautiful crafts that help you commemorate your love for your pet in a lasting and sentimental way. You can d

o these at different intervals in your puppy’s life to see how she’s growing, or have a fun afternoon crafting a few as future mementos.

Plus, they make great gifts for all of the people who care for your dog throughout the year: namely, your dog walkers, sitters, trainers, doggy day care maestros, even your dog groomer!

Pro tip: Since most of these activities involve some kind of pet-safe paint or gooey substance, I highly recommend that you do all of them outside. That way, your pet’s prints are only on the artwork, and not on your living room floor. Plus, doing these outside will allow for easy cleanup for you and your dog when the time comes to wash off the plaster, paint, sand or ink.

Your pup loves the beach, so make this sand-themed shadow box from the Kol’s Notes blog as a way to remember your fun times there together.

How To Make Paw-Print Art - Tutorial

The holiday went on as usual, naked youths and young women, merrily with songs, jumped over the high flame. Purified by fire, they dissolved in pairs in the darkness under the canopy of trees. Black people appeared suddenly.

Similar news:

Stasik continued to pretend. As if he was fast asleep, even for persuasiveness he smacked his lips sweetly, but it seems that the girl, captured by passion, did not. Notice anything of this. Inflamed by her satisfied husband, she stroked her vagina with both hands, inserted the fingers of one hand inside, massaging the clitoris with the fingers of the other.
