Make a Super Easy Dog Shirt Collar
I’m not a very “crafty” person, but when I saw this diy pet project, I just had to try it out. It looked like a quick and easy dog craft project. And it was. Easy, quick and no sewing is needed.
Personally I don’t really like seeing dogs in clothing, unless it’s a winter coat. But cute accessories can be fun and harmless. Dobermans have short hair and are sensitive to the cold, so they do need doggie winter sweaters.
The other reason I like this project besides it being super easy is that it makes a Doberman look less intimidating. Some people are nervous about dogs, especially Dobermans, and these cute shirt collars might just lighten the mood on your next walk. You can still wear a regular collar along with this fashionable doggie collar.
Again these dog shirt collars are easy-peasy to make.
You will need:
- shirts – you might already have some lying around the house you don’t use. I actually had fun looking for shirts at the thrift store. You want to look for larger neck sizes, to fit around your Dobermans neck. Also, look for a stiff collar that has good structure. Avoid flimsy, light shirt collars. And make sure the shirt has a button on the collar.
- you’ll also need scissors and fray check liquid is optional but it will help keep any loose threads from fraying.
That’s it for supplies!
- Now get your shirt
- Cut slowly around the collar
- Add optional fray check to edges
- BAM! you’re done.
How easy and fast was that?
I think the hardest part is finding a shirt with a large enough neck size.
The two shirts I used were a neck size 16, the blue shirt was smaller and wouldn’t fit my Dobermans, but it would fit a puppy just fine.
Thanks to this blog and this blog where I discovered this project.
