Ornament Large

With the holidays fast approaching, is trying to get creative ideas and unique gift for pet loving friends and family members? A variety of simple but personalized items you can create yourself a little time and effort. You, however, need access to the pet (or at least photographs of the pet) to complete these works of art. Following are some ideas that are sure to please pet owners!

If the pet in question is one you visit frequently, an imprint in the clay can become a significant motif. You can buy kits to make these copies, or you can search through the mud in various colors and textures, rolling out and make a footprint impression. You can register the name of the pet in the ornament too. Place a small hole in the top of the printing and, once it is dry, thread a colored ribbon through it. There are a number of different types of clay that works for this way, the easiest to be air dried clay such as Crayola. However, some of the clays that require cooking, such as Sculpey products come in several different colors and can make a holiday ornament. Websites like createforless.com offer a plethora of choices!

A different kind of decorations can be performed using a lock of hair of a pet. You can buy clear glass ornaments, such as Daric and insert a tuft of hair on the sphere with a tape. You can further personalize the ornament of the painting of the pet's name and date on the outside. Add a ribbon and is ready to hang! A third suggestion is to buy a flat surface, "Ready-to-finish trim on which you can place a photo of a pet. These can be decorated at the edges with tape, and name pet and the date painted on the back. Michael, Hobby Lobby or other craft stores should have these on hand.

For those who are not as artistic, or do not have time to spend on these projects, a number of options to purchase pet ornaments with custom theme. Theanimalrescuesite.com is an option to find reasonably priced gifts that can be customized … and every purchase also helps animal welfare organizations and other charities!

If you would like to try something more than an ornament, a personalized memory box is another simple but meaningful gift idea. Buy a wooden box (as least 7 "x 7" x 7 ") and put different photos of the pet on all sides and the top of the box. You can still decorate with the name of the pet, as well as the fingerprint or other stickers. You should be able to find boxes like this in Michael, Hobby Lobby or other craft stores.

A Custom Calendar pet is another gift idea. If you are particularly creative, you can do a year of hanging wall calendar with notebook paper, 8 1 / 2 x 11 "2010 print calendar, and pet photos. You can find calendars to print online (2010calendar.org is an option). Once the schedule printed in a paper landscape good quality, put into the background as notebook paper, cut large enough to accommodate the schedule as well as photographs of pets you want include. Laminate the calendar, cut a small hole at the top and thread through a ribbon of celebration for a year of tribute to your pet-loving best buddy.

Other calendar options are available through websites like smilebox.com, which lets you create and customize greeting cards, Postcards, photo albums and collages, plus calendars, with a variety of pre-selected designs. The output can be shared electronically or printed.

These are just some gift ideas for lovers of pets in your life … and none of them is sure to be appreciated and loved.
