"Can we get a dog?" This has been a very popular question around here for the past several years. While we aren't planning to get one in the near future, perhaps someday, we did have fun creating these Scottie dogs with textured coats!

Start with:

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Pipe Cleaner
  • Pom Poms
  • Plastic Knife and/or Fork
  • Glue

Create it!

Step 1: Draw a dog on cardboard and cut out.

Step 2: Add blobs of paint to top portion of cardboard dog and use plastic knife/fork to scrape the paint onto the cardboard, creating a lined texture.

Step 3: Allow the paint to dry.

Step 4: Cut a portion of the pipe cleaner and glue on as dog's collar.

Step 5: Glue pom poms onto pipe cleaner for a finishing touch.

These would be fun with bow ties or hats too! And eyes! So many possibilities!
