Inside: Surprise your dog this Christmas with a dog stocking stuffer and Christmas dog bandana in one! This is the cutest DIY gift idea – you can do it for cats too.
Every year, we put together a little stocking or gift set for our dog, Buddy. It usually has some new chew toys, some very special treats and often, something for him to wear like a new collar, new name tag or a coat. This year, I decided to figure out how to make your own Dog Stocking Stuffer! Dogs deserve Christmas too right? Yes! This treat pouch also doubles as a Christmas Dog Bandana! (Buddy always wears one to catch his drool… haha)
To make this little treat, you’ll need: (contains affiliate links)
- Festive fabric (LOVING these from Fabric.com!)
- some plain tissue paper
- twine or string (We like to use Baker’s Twine)
- pipe cleaners
- google eyes
- red pom-poms
I cut my kerchief fabric based on Buddy’s old kerchief. He’s a big fella – so if your doggy is smaller, then just adjust proportionately. I cut a triangle of fabric that is 16″x16″x24″ approximately. Then, I simply used a piece of tissue paper and folded it into roughly the same size and laid it over the fabric, offset a little.
Just make sure the eyes and nose aren’t secure too tightly. You’ll want to pop them off before tying the bandana onto your pooch 🙂
Speaking of pooch – here’s my sweet ol’ boy Buddy wearing his bandana and waiting patiently for his treat! 😀
