Easiest Upcycled Dog Collar Ever!


I started this project 15 minutes ago and I'm already blogging about it...that's how easy it was!!  



INSTRUCTIONS:

Find an old collared shirt and test fit it around your dog's neck. 


Make sure it has the collared button with it (not all collared shirts are created equal).  You can see what I'm talking about in this next picture.

Just cut the collar off the shirt...literally.  Then use Fray Check (a product that stops fabric from fraying) along the bottom edge and voila!!  Brand new dog collar!


He looks handsome, don't ya think?

Not sure it would fit round my neck.

We hope you visit again and we look forward to getting to know you better.

You have some very clever ideas... Momma thinks Quinn would look very elegent in one of those collars.

That is so hilarious. Guess the thing that makes it so funny is the serious look on our friend's face as he dons that collar. Looks like he's right on top of the style too because I hear plaid's back with a vengeance.

Other than that love the fact that this is such a simple craft to follow. Thanks!

KayzKreationz said...

That is so adorable. And yes, he does look cute.

Debby & Kirby the Dorkie said...

OMD! I'm making one of these for Kirby! I used thread and needle for the collar so I wish I had seen your post before then. Glue would have been much quicker! I'm shortening a tie for Kirby's too. Only $10 at Walmart for a boy's shirt and tie!!

Love your blog!!

Ela's Idea said...

Good day to you my friend. I needed to give you a quick note to express my thanks. I've been studying your blog for a month or so and have picked up quite a lot of good info as well as enjoyed the way in which you've setup your blog. I am attempting to setup my own blog but I feel it is too general. I want to focus more on specific topics. Being all things to all folks isn't all that it’s cracked up to be. Many thanks.
