Buy or DIY? Fun Pet Products for Your Furry Friends

HGTV Magazine found 20-plus fun products you can buy, or you can try your hand at one of our DIY projects.

No matter if you're a crafty cat owner or DIY-deficient dog lover, we know you want to shower your pet in affection and belly rubs—and of course, toys and treats and lots more of the simple pleasures pets love. HGTV Magazine found 20-plus fun products you can buy, or you can try your hand at one of our DIY projects.

Buy or DIY: Bed

This fluffy, striped bed is available in a variety of sizes to accommodate small or large dogs. You could also transform a piece of vintage luggage into a stylish bed for small- or medium-sized pets.

Buy or DIY: House/Crate

Only the best for your pet! That's why you can buy him or her this blue doggie "mansion." Or keep pets close by building this DIY dual coffee table-crate.

Buy or DIY: Bowls

You don't have to worry about leaving food and water bowls out when they look as good as this colorful ceramic find. Feeling the DIY itch instead? Create a feeding station by making inserts for pet bowls to "hide" in a stylish piece of furniture like a bench or a storage box.

Buy or DIY: Toys

Friendly felines will enjoy hours of playtime with catnip toys in fun shapes and colors. Or keep cats entertained with a seasonal spinner wand. Tweak the instructions to use any design you'd like.
