DIY Splatter Paint Dog Leash


Seriously....how hip does Sebastian look with his splatter paint leash?!  Here's how we did it

What you'll need:
5/8" width white ribbon
3/4" width sturdy black nylon webbing (at craft and hardware stores)
Tulip Fabric Spray Paint
White and black thread
One snap hook for 3/4" width strap


I like that Tulip literally has a "neon" Fabric Spray Paint pack you can buy.  However, black is sold separately.  

I set the ribbon down for random spraying on the grass and made sure I had enough ribbon to make a matching collar or other things.  I sprayed two colors, let them dry, changed up the ribbon a little bit and sprayed two more colors.


Trick: Only push the sprayer half way to get the "splatter" look as opposed to the "spray" look.  Mix it up and have some fun!!!  After all your colors are on, look at the ribbon and apply more paint in bare areas.

Next, it's time to hit up the sewing machine and attach the sprayed ribbon to some sturdy nylon webbing (this makes for a strong leash).  Put white thread in the top and black thread on the bobbin.  Sew close to both sides of outer edge of ribbon while centering it on the black webbing.


Determine how long you want the leash (I just measured the length of one of Sebastian's leashes I like).  Make sure you calculate your handle and snap hook strapping needs before you cut.  

Lightly burn the edges of both ends (seals raw edges) to make sure leash does not unravel. 


Create your handle and sew in place.  Make the loop as big or as small as you'd like.  


Sew the snap hook on the opposite side.


And voila!  You have a new hip leash.



XOXOXOXOXO,
Erika and Sebastian
