Raised Dog Bowl

2 Materials
15 Minutes

Take a look at how I recycled a cardboard box into a rise for a dog bowl. It was super easy and a fun way to recycle! You can choose to decorate or cover yours in contact paper, or you can just leave it as is.

First step is to find the right box that will be the correct height for your fur baby.

Then trace the bottom of the bowl you'd like to fit in the stand on the box and cut out the circle. Then tape the box shut.

Double check (and trim to fit) that bowl sets down inside firmly. Dont want any accidents here!

Now all you have left to do is to decorate! (let the kids express themselves) You can cover the box with markers, beads, crayon or whatever you have on hand. I used some leftover black chalkboard contact paper, what fun things we can come up with!

Personalize it for your pet if you want to and viola a FREE raised food/water bowl! That's it! This also works great for traveling with pets. Hope you give it a try!
