This super easy project from the 'A Beautiful Mess' blog shows how to make customized bowls for your pets. The nice thing about this project is that you can get creative with how you design the dishware in a variety of ways.
All that is needed to make these are some wood bowls, a wood burning tool and lettered stickers. You simply place the lettered stickers on the bowls to spell out anything you please. Then, trace around each letter with the wood burner.
Do-it-yourself projects are not only ideal for those who are on a tight budget, but are also great for people who are looking to start their own business. For the artsy type, this idea is versatile and can be used to design a multitude of wood objects.
