As many of you know, Steve and I have been dog owners our entire marriage. We’ve spoiled them over the years — as does the entire family. Unfortunately, we lost our sweet Buster Brown in August, so these dog-related posts are a little harder for me than usual.
I miss my sweet boy so much.
Anywho, last Christmas my sister, Kristine, hosted Christmas morning. My husband was in St. Johns, NL celebrating his mom’s 75th birthday.
It was a Christmas I will probably never forget — the first year (2019) we’ve been apart on Christmas and I just happened to be under the weather. Pretty depressing, right?
Yeah, for me, it was a very low-key day. That is to say that I’ve never been more grateful to have my family so close though.
Nevertheless, it was a lovely Christmas. And I clearly recall these darling dog treat ornaments she made. They were hanging scattered throughout the tree. Then she passed them out to each of us for our dogs. We’re a big dog family…
Money can buy you a fine dog,
but only love can make
him wag his tail.
We were all pretty impressed with this cuteness. On a side note, my sister is pretty darn creative. As a matter of fact, I’m always encouraging her to start her own blog. She blows the idea off and, therefore, I share her genius with all of you. Ha.
This dog treat ornament makes for a great Christmas gift for all the dogs in your life. Even if you don’t own one, this is such a simple way to spread a little extra joy to the four-legged friends in the family, neighborhood, workplace, etc.
DIY Dog Treat Ornament
- Remove silver metal hanger caps from the plastic ornament.
- Place small dog treats into the plastic ornament (you’ll probably have to do this one at a time). After that, replace the metal cap.
- Add twine or string for hanging.
- Optional: Add paw print charm (see picture above) and/or ribbon bow (see below).
… and it’s ready for gifting! Ho ho ho. I told you it was easy. And you can accessorize as much or as little as possible. Maybe you’re not crafty — search for the dog treat ornaments on Etsy, some will even personalize them for you.
Hugs and Blessings!
