Usually used to prevent them from licking or worrying a wound, the cone of shame helps to prevent complications to existing issues. However, seeing them look so forlorn is tough on owners as well, which is why it might help to decorate them. This not only lets your pets know that the cone of shame can be a source of fun, they’ll also look extra cute in it and you might get some laughs out of this project! Here are some ways you can transform the cone of shame into a brilliant accessory.
The Late Bloomer
Life can’t always be a bed of roses but you can always add some cheer to your lives with a floral design! Turn your pet’s cone of shame into a sunflower to show them off as the ray of sunshine they are in your life. Don’t limit yourself to sunflowers and go crazy with your favourite flowers! While it may not cheer your pet up too much, it instantly brightens their look.
The Not-So-Mini Martini
Owners who enjoy a good evening tipple can get a good laugh out of this design. Capitalising on the shape of the cone’s mouth and its similarity to a martini glass, this spin on the cone of shame simply plants a stick of olives on the cone and voila! You can also try to replicate other beverages so get creative! Do ensure that your props aren’t too heavy or uncomfortable for your pet!

If your pet is the type that always seems to have its head in the clouds, then this is an excellent time to represent it! Have your pet looking positively celestial with oodles of cotton-y cloud-like material decorating the cone of shame. It might even be more comfy for your pet although do make sure that the material doesn’t end up irritating your pet even more.
Like a Sir
For a simple addition to your pet’s is a moustache that makes your pet look nothing less than sophisticated. With the right camera angle, your pet goes from cranky fur-baby to snobby aristo-cat! Don’t be afraid to add more details of your own such as drawings of pipes, top hats, bow ties and more!
Remember that your attitude towards the cone of shame has a huge influence on how your pet comes to view it, so if you choose to have fun with it, your pet is more likely to hate it less. Before decorating your pet’s cone of shame, ensure the materials are pet-friendly before proceeding!
