You take care of and spoil your pet, just like you do your family. Especially this time of year. Trust me, I get it. I’m the one who “Boo’d” our neighborhood this Halloween and included treats for all the neighborhood cats and dogs.

So of course, that carries through to Christmas. I couldn’t just give gifts to my parents. Oh no. I had to think about their cat Sox too. I was stocking up on Friskies and Fancy Feast at PetSmart for her and had a great idea: I would turn one of the cans into a DIY cat food can Christmas ornament for her too.

It was so easy to make and came out so much cuter than I could have imagined.

What You Need:

  • Empty cat food can, washed and dried
  • Scrap paper
  • Khaki spray paint
  • Black, white, pink, khaki paint chip samples
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pipe cleaner
  • Drill

What You’ll Do:

Pull the wrapper off of the cat food can and bring the can, spray paint, and scrap paper outside. As with any project you spray paint, you want to do it outdoors. I always take mine out into the woods behind our house.

Spray the can with spray paint, then leave it outside to dry for a few minutes.

Spray a second coat on your can and let it dry.

While you’re waiting, go back inside and cut out the face.

You can use card stock to make the face, but I went with paint chip samples. See, I was picking up the spray paint, and it’s in the same section. I wanted to make sure the ears would match, so it was easier for me pick up the samples. Plus, they’re thin and heavy duty, so I knew they would hold up well. Cut out two triangles from the brown paper for ears, two pink triangles for the inner ear and a pink nose, whites for the eyes and black pupils, then black whiskers.

When the spray paint is completely dry, glue the face onto it, and let it dry.

Drill a small hole in the top.

Fold a pipe cleaner in half, stick the “open” ends into the drilled hole, then, twist the two ends together to “tie” the pipe cleaner.

Sox loves beef flavored food, so I was so happy to know that both brands had a wide variety of beef flavors. There were ones in gravy, ones that were sliced, ones that were paired with other proteins, and so many more too chose from. I was so happy to stock up and save at PetSmart. The are new low prices on wet cat food when you purchase 24 cans or more. Find your local PetSmart here.
