Chloe is starting to outgrow her adorable custom collars I got for her on Etsy :( Definitely should have gotten a size bigger than she needed since she was just a puppy then. I didn’t think that one through did I?! Everyone’s entitled to an airhead moment every now and then....right?! Come on, make me feel better! *hangs head in shame*
Anyways! I was clipping coupons one day and I saw one for the dog food I usually get. It was for a free collar with purchase. This worked out well and came at the perfect time. One problem! It was a pretty boring collar. I’ve been meaning to make her a new one, but I’m always at work. I needed to find a way to make the boring one cute. When I figure out how to make a collar from scratch I’ll post it, till then I will cheat and use one already made.
I ended up buying little pronged jewels that I think are used for embellishing clothing. They were the perfect size and I knew they would make an obnoxiously bling-ed out collar for my little one ;) Chloe is many things, but shy and understated is not one of them. She is a diva and deserves a collar to match her personality.
i removed the 3 inch "jewel" before starting
Place the jewels one by one onto the collar. Fold the prongs back as hard as you can to make sure they’re not sticking out. It should be smooth when you run your hands over the back of the collar. I decided that I would fill the whole collar with bling because that’s the way my pup likes it ;)
I also added a little flower because the collar just wasn’t loud enough, lol. I attached it the same way as the rest of the jewels. I pushed the jewel through to the two flowers and folded the prongs back.
This little project took me 15 minutes and cost me $8. If your dog isn’t as divalicious as mine, you can get simple little studs and ditch the flower. Either way, it’s a really easy project and your dog will love it :)
