Today’s DIY Project is Tug Toys. This project will help keep you dog entertained and a great project for kids to help with.
3 Different Colors of Fleece (I got a yard of each)
Rotatory Cutter Scissor
Ruler or Cutting Guide
Total Cost: Under $15 (Got my fleece on sale)
Project Time: To make just one tug toy 5-10 minutes. If you cut all 3 yards and use it all about 30-45 minutes, making about 20 tug toys.
Skill Level: Easy to Moderate
Kid Friendly-Parents need to supervise the cutting of the fabric.
1. Lay your first fabric out on your cutting mat flat. Using the ruler or cutting guide start cutting strips every 3 inches until the amount of strips you need to make the amount of toys is achieved.
2. Once you cut all three colors layer the three fabrics on top of each other, order doesn’t matter. Tie a knot at the one end and pull the fabric tight.
3. Start braiding your 3 fabric until you have about 5 inches left. Then, tie the other end into a knot. You may need to undo some of the braiding to make it easier to tie.
4. Finally, cut the end fabric that is outside of the knot so the fabric is all the same length.
And there you have it, a fun tug toy that you dog will love to play with. This is a great toy you can make to donate you your local humane society or rescue organization.
