DIY Dog Bone Wreath

Today’s DIY project is a Dog Bone Wreath. This makes a great gift for those dog lovers in your life.

Supplies:
Cardboard
Cutting Mat
Box Cutter
Scissor 
Tape
Bowls-Large and Small
Ribbon-Two Different Colors, Base 1/2 in wide, Top 7/8 wide
Milk Bones – Amount will vary (I use the large milk bones)

Total Cost: Under $20
Project Time: About 30 minutes
Skill Level: Moderate


1. Place your cardboard on you cutting mat. Using the large bowl as a guide cut out a circle with your box cutter.

2. Now place the smaller bowl in the center of the circle and cut out the middle of the wreath.

3.  With your big ribbon tape it to the back of your wreath. Then start wrapping the ribbon around your wreath until it is all covered making sure the ribbon is tight while you wrap it and tape the end down.You can space it as close or as far apart as you like.

4. Using the thin ribbon tie it to your wreath and tape over the top of it. This will help proved extra strength to hold the bones in place.

5. Next, place your first bone on the wreath and wrap it with your ribbon. Make sure you are pulling the ribbon tight and hold it in place while you place the next bone. While you are doing this you may need to make adjustments to the placement of your bones. Just make sure the ribbon is tight.

6. Once you get to the end tie the ribbon around the wreath and tape it in place.

7. Using the top ribbon make a hanger and using the base ribbon you can make a bow to finish off your wreath.

If you plan on going anywhere for Christmas and are bring your dog with, this makes a great host/hostess gift. 

You can also make one and donate it to your local humane society!

Since we didn’t use any glue all the bones can be used as treats for you K9 pal. If you plan on hanging your wreath up, make sure it is out of reach from you animal.

DIY Holiday Gift Ideas: Paw Print Ornament

This week I’m sharing DIY projects that would make great gifts for either the dog or dog lover in your life.

Today’s project we are making Paw Print Ornaments.

Here is what you need:
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Salt
1/2 Cup Water
Mixing Bowl
Measuring Cups
Cookie Sheet
Rolling Pin
Spoon
Cup
Straw
Ribbon/String

Preheat the oven for 200 degrees F
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes (depends on how cooperative your dog is.)
Cook Time: About 2 hours
Skill Level: Easy
Great Project for Kids

Combine the flour, salt and water in your bowl. Then knead with your hands on a well floured surface until dough is smooth.

Roll dough with rolling pin until dough is about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick.

Use a cup to cut out a circle in your dough. Make sure your cup is big enough to fit your dog’s paw print comfortably.

Then, take your dough and place it onto your cookie sheet and press your dog’s paw into to dough firmly. This took us a couple of tries to get it just right.

Next, use a straw to cut out a small circle into your dough. This will allow you to hook a string onto your ornament.

Place your cookie sheet into the oven on 200 degrees for about 2 hours or until your dough is cooked through. 

Take your cookie sheet out and let cool. You can then paint your ornament, write your dog’s name and/or the year, or you can leave them plain.

You don’t have to do just your dog’s paw, I also did my nose and my pal Callie’s paw. Kids could do their hand print or you could make plain circles and decorate after they are done baking.
