DIY Craft: Flower Power!

DIY Craft: Flower Power!
Put some spring in your dog’s step with a flower-embellished collar!


It’s the little things that make a big difference, bringing a smile and elevating moods. Think bubble machines or taking the time to make the dinner table beautiful. This DIY collar accessory certainly falls into this category and couldn’t be simpler. All you need is some fake flowers from a craft or dollar store and a wee bit of hand stitching, and voilà, you have a day-brightening bloom affixed to your dog’s collar!

What You'll Need
• A dog collar
• Silk flower
• 6 inches of ribbon
• Needle + thread

Flowers with a flat fabric bottom are easiest to work with. If your flower has a plastic base and stem, snip off the stem as close as possible to the plastic base. Center your flower in the middle of the length of fabric. Using your needle and thread, stitch the ribbon to the base and some of the bottom leaves of the flower so that the flower is now affixed to the ribbon. And that’s it—use the ribbon to tie the flower on to your dog’s collar!
