10 Ways You Can Use A Cow Print in Your Crafts

10 Ways You Can Use A Cow Print in Your Crafts

Studies have shown that the search term “cow print” made over 150 million hits on Google. So there's no denying that this playful pattern is here to stay.

Cow print patterns and designs are synonymous with farm-style living. Decorate your home or crafts with rustic country charm, no matter where you live. Kids can dress up in costumes for events, even adults too!

If you're stuck for inspiration, this guide shows you ten exciting ways to incorporate farmhouse designs into your next project. Read on and we'll tell you how.

1. Cow Print Costumes

Cow print has been a long-time classic at rodeo events; however, this playful print is also popular at any fancy dress event. Costumes are great fun for adults and children alike. We have the perfect example of a seamless cow print pattern from the Plus Hub.

If you can't find a suitable fabric or don't have time to sew a whole costume, then you could use cow print sublimation. Add to a T-shirt an alternative idea, then use face and body paint to draw on cow spots.

2. Cow Print Papercraft Ideas

Papercraft projects are usually the first step for any new crafter. You simply print out the cow pattern, grab your scissors and start creating. If you have a cutting machine like Cricut or Silhouette, you can use SVG cut files to make crafting a lot easier. Print backgrounds scrapbooking, stationary, decoupage, party decor or even origami.

3. Cow Print Artwork

Download a high-quality cow print SVG and graphic images of farm animals to create unique wall art. Print out a set of them on either canvases or print paper and frame them to create a focal point in your home.

Think outside the box and use the same artwork on pillowcases, event flyers, customized clothing and more. I love how this cow print photo is so versatile I could use it for just about anything.

4. Cow Print Tableware

Cowboy or cowgirl-themed parties are a great way to use a cow print across multiple projects. Sublimate a tablecloth, printable candy wrappers, party bags and special outfits for the kids. If you have a mug press, you could also create customized designs for each kid.

Adults love mixing and matching sunflowers with cow prints. This Sunflower And Cow Print Tumbler Wrap reminds me of warm, sunny days filled with happiness.

5. Messy Bun Sublimation

It’s Moo to Messy hair and I don’t care. Mom life messy bun sublimation designs are not only trendy but on point too. Match the designs up with a cow print pattern and your outfit is set. I think this bundle of Mom Life Messy Bun PNGs will fit just about any mood or character.

7. Cow Print Vanity Set

If you're into upcycling, this is a great way to utilize old jars and small containers. Decorate them by decoupage, spraying or painting a cow print design. Then add finishing touches like buttons and ribbons to create a fun matching vanity set.

You can even personalize cow print vanity bags with sublimation designs, heat transfer vinyl or direct-to-vinyl.

8. Cow Print Upholstery

Using cow print on upholstery is a great way to make a statement in any room. It works particularly well in a living room.

Decorating everything in cow print can feel overwhelming. The best way to keep this style looking chic is to just use cow print as an accent. For example, two small chairs or a footstool, or a feature on the curtains.

Try to mix complementary colors to balance out the loud pattern without overbearing the room. If you don't have upholstery tools but still want to use cow print as part of your furnishings, then you can mimic this by using cow print throws or a statement rug instead.

9. Cow Print Pillows

This idea looks great when you pair it with a theme of farmyard animals and not only use cow print, but also typical animals you'd find on a farm.

Download a selection of line-draw farm animal SVG files and use one animal per pillow or cushion. You could print these with a sublimation printer or direct to vinyl for long-lasting results.

Heat transfer vinyl can easily be cut from the tons of SVG cut files available and applied to your pillowcase.

Try something a little different. I’m in love with these Cow Print Gnomes. Talk about adorable! They would be perfect for my craft room, reminding me of all the amazing projects I can make.

Create a range of cushions to furnish the whole room. Use a mix of cow print and then mix it with the more subtle farmyard animal sublimation designs to create a country or farmhouse theme for your room.

10. Cow Print Sweater or T-shirt

Whether it’s cold outside or the sun is shining, a cow print sweater or t-shirt is a must-have for your wardrobe. This Hay Ya’all sublimation quote from the Plus Hub is simple and yet so funny. Perfect for rodeo events, farm-themed markets and events or just having a good ol’ time with your family or friends.
