We believe the holidays are even more enjoyable when you share them with the furriest member of the family. That’s why we created a holiday guide that includes tips on making the most of this season with your pup! We’ve included gift ideas, safety tips, treat recommendations, and more.
Homemade Paw Ornaments
Try these DIY dog ornaments you can hang on your tree for years to come. You will need the following ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
Round cookie cutter
Acrylic paint(s) and brush
Ribbon of your choice
The rest is simple! Preheat your oven to 200 degrees F, combine the flour, salt, and water, knead the dough, lay it flat, cut out circles, and gently press your pup’s paw into the center. Be sure to make a hole at the top with a drinking straw before you place the ornament in the oven to harden. Clean off your dog’s paw if there is any residue. Your new ornament will be ready in 2 hours. Once dry, you can paint it however you like! Note that these are VERY high salt content. Ingestion of your homemade ornaments can be toxic to dogs and humans alike. Keep these out of reach from dogs and curious children!
