This is my sweet rescue taco terrier pup Harrison Oakley Acorn. 
I think he looks quite distinguished in his gingham plaid collar.

Christmastime is upon us. Every year we include our sweet pets in our family Christmas photos. They are every bit a part of our family. Even during the hustle and bustle of a family life it's easy to take a few minutes to show your pets some extra love without having to stop into a speciality pet store.
This year I wanted to show them some extra love with a cute custom collar to wear throughout the holiday season and give them some treats too. This super easy DIY Dog Craft for a cute dog collar take literally minutes to make as and so does picking up some Purina dog and cat products to treat our sweet pets to some extra love.

DIY Dog Craft Collar

  • Measuring tape
  • Sharp scissors
  • Button down shirt with collar 
As I mention, this is a super quick and easy diy dog craft. (or cat)
First, measure you cat or dog's neck making sure to leave a little give so the collar isn't too tight. To find the correct size shirt for your pet measure the inside of the shirt collar and match it as closely as possible to your pet's neck size. 
For my cats I used a size 6-12 month old sized shirt. For my small dog I used a 2 T sized shirt. You could easily fit all sizes of dogs and cats with shirts ranging from preemie to xxl men's sizes. 
A new or gently used shirt work fine. To save a little I bought my shirt at a local thrift shop. 
Next, cut along the collars edge just below the rolled seam, trimming as close to the edge as possible.
AND that's it. Really there is nothing more to it. 

Henri Charles Puffington looks so cute. I love how the colors in the collar show off his pretty eyes.

For for Harrison I placed his cute new collar around his neck and then took his regular collar and placed it under the flaps of his plaid collar much like where you would put a tie.

To show them some extra love Harrison, Henri and Fuzzy all got some treats from Purina too.

Henri loves indulging in his soft Whisker Lickin′s cat treats.  Harrison loves the Beggin’ Strips because what dog doesn't love a treat that smells like bacon and taste like bacon because they’re made with real bacon. Fancy Feast Purely cat food selections have real seafood, chicken, or beef. Never any by-products or fillers which is great for our Fuzzy cat.
