Take an every day jar or make over an old tin for some stylish dog treat canisters that are sure to make your furry friends howl!
For all of you dog owners and dog lovers out there, this post is for you! In an HGTV magazine a month or two ago, they showed an illustrated dog treat container that inspired me to pull out my handy dandy Silhouette Cameo and make one myself. Then I decided to create a few different options to share with all of you! This diy project can be super inexpensive — and if you don’t have a Silhouette, simply print of stencil or vinyl and cut!
Let’s take a look at the three options I want to share with you today.
one: Mason Jars
I love mason jars and thought, why not throw a couple of vinyl bones on there. It turned out great and adds a little fun to the pantry or counter space. I used a bone template and sized it at 1.575″ x 1.880″. This would make a great gift idea for your neighbors pooches!
two: Storage Container (aka Cracker Jar with Lid)
You can pick these up at your local Walmart for $4-5. You’ll find them with silver lids. I purchased this one at the Container Store during the holidays last year, scoring the ever-so-cute red lid. For this one I simply cut out the letter bow-wow using black vinyl, using the font Pea Tinapay sized at 126.9 pt. Fill it up with Milkbones or make some homemade Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Treats. You now have a fabulous (and larger) dog treat container for under $10.
three: Tin Canister Makeover
This one was inspired by Tidy Mom. She made a pet food canister up-cycling a popcorn tin. I picked up an old (smaller) tin at the thrift sore and thought I would use it for dog treats. After a quick coat of yellow spray paint, I used my Silhouette to cut out the words (and paw print) in white vinyl.
The word dog is a font called vintage, set at 75.0 pt.
The word treats I used the font love ya like a sister at 55.0 pt.
The paw print is sized at 2″ in width.
Add a little ribbon — and voila! Woof Woof!
When my mom was visiting this past summer, she said, “give me one of those for Christmas!” They make great gifts for family and friends with dogs… and you might score an extra bark or two for bringing them some goodies for the pooches.
