I wanted to make our dog Bella a cute springtime collar. I recently put hair bows on picture frames and thought I'd do the same thing on her dog collar. The only thing you need for this project is a collar (I purchased mine from the dollar store), and a tulle pouf. I chose the pink flower gem pouf from the headband making supplies area at Michael's. I liked the hair accessories poufs because they are light weight (my dog is small), and they are also mounted onto a felt background (as opposed to a pin) so it makes it easy to hand sew onto the collar. The only hard part of this project was trying to get Bella to sit still for a good photo!
For this project you will need:
Dog Collar-I purchased mine from the Dollar Tree store.
*If you have trouble finding the right size $1 dog collar buy one a little larger and cut a couple inches off to customize. You can then use a lighter to melt the nylon end so it will not fray. You can also use an awl to make an extra hole on the collar.
Tulle Pouf (I purchased mine from Michael's. They have a headband making area and you will find many choices there.
Needle and Thread
Line up where you would want your pouf. I chose on the side of the collar after the sparkly band.
Use the metal plate sewn onto the felt as the base of the flower to hand sew onto the collar. Lock your thread through the base and then stitch it onto the collar. The material was surprisingly very easy to get a needle through.
