Birthday Week: DIY Pet Birthday Bandana
 

Birthdays call for celebration, and what better way to celebrate than a spiffy new bandana to let everyone know it’s your Birthday!

And because I want everyone to celebrate with me, here’s a tutorial I created to help you make your own pet a celebratory bandana.

Step 1: Using a ruler and cutting utensil, cut a bandana sized piece of fabric out of your material. We used a bandana I already had as a template, but you can also measure your pet’s neck and add about 4″ to be able to tie it. You might also opt to sew the edges of your bandana to prevent fraying before moving on to step 2.

Step 2: You will need your HOORAY! stamp for this part (my mom carved mine, find out how to carve a stamp here or find out how to purchase one here). Use your sponge brush to apply screen printing ink or acrylic paint mixed with Textile Medium to the stamp.

Step 3: Stamp your fabric in several places, re-applying paint after each one. Then allow to dry.

Adding another color can add to the overall effect.

And when you are all finished you will have a spiffy new bandana that’s perfect for celebrating my Birthday with me.

Happy Birthday to me! Only 3 more days until I’m officially 4 and get to open all my presents!

    Ammo’s birthday week is full of fun stuff! I’ve been meaning to try my hand at carving rubber stamps. So much can be said for a crafty ink print.

      Yay! My mom loves carving stamps – I’ll have to share the one she made of my logo soon!
