Laundry Bottle Pet Food Scoop

Even your pets can go green for Earth Day! Recycle an empty laundry bottle into a use scooper for your pet’s food. We even have a suggestion for the part of the bottle you cut off and don’t use!

What you’ll need:craft_laundry2_rdax_65

  • Plastic laundry bottle
  • Felt in your favorite shades
  • White craft glue
  • Scissors or a sharp knife
  • Felt alphabet stickers (optional)

How to make it:

  1. Have a grown up cut the top of the laundry bottle off, leaving the handle in tact.
  2. Remove packaging labels and wash the outside to remove any residue.
  3. Wash the inside thoroughly, making sure that all soap residue has been removed. A good rinse with very hot water will ensure all soap is gone.
  4. If using felt alphabet stickers, stick them to the front of the bottle, spelling out your pet’s name. If you don’t have the felt stickers, simply cut your pet’s name out of felt and glue them to the bottle.
  5. Cut out fun shapes such as bones, biscuits, and paw prints, and glue them all over the bottle.
  6. Let dry completely before using.
