Doggy Bamboo Bed

By: Erika Lindquist

Here is a DIY home decor project for the one-and-only in your life. The Doggy Bamboo Bed from Erika Lindquist is at the forefront of do-it-yourself dog beds. It's one of those simple and easy crafts that will yield rewarding results for you and your canine companion. Simply gather your materials and read through these instructions to learn how to add some luxury into the life of your best buddy. Craft project ideas don't get much more adorable than this relaxing oasis for your pup.

Doggy Bamboo Bed


  • Bamboo sticks
  • Twine
  • Chop saw


  1. Cut the bamboo to size (easiest with a man...with a chop saw).  To determine the size of your bed frame, measure the size of your dog bed and add a few inches on each side for the bamboo to overlap. What's awesome about this project is you can use an already made dog bed that you have to place inside the bamboo frame.  You can also make the frame as big or as small as you want it so virtually any sized dog can have one!

  2. This part is going to take two people.  This is the "square" knot technique to combine the bamboo.

  3. After you get the bottom frame done, give it a test fit with the bed you will use.

  4. Next it's time to square that baby up as you attach the top frame.

  5. Measure the bamboo frame around all sides.  You'll have 2 different measurements, unless your frame is a perfect square.  Cut out 8 rectangles of fabric based on these measurements:  measure from floor to top of frame and double that measurement for the length.  Measure from one side all the way to the other side for the width (no need to double up on the width unless you want extra gathering).
  6. Fold each rectangle piece in half and lay over the top bamboo strip like this:

  7. Then just gather the piece of fabric to one side and tie a piece of twine around it to hold it in this:

  8. Repeat these steps for each corner of the bed frame. That's it!

Well this is definitely a bed fit for a doggy prince or princess) My name has a little pooch who thinks she is royalty as she should think!! I feel she would definitely suit a bed like this, I am going to try make this for her and see what she thinks of it!

Cool. I want to make one for my Ghost. She's my American Bulldog.
