Christmas is just around the corner and with that comes something dreaded by all our four-legged family members – pet-sized reindeer antlers. You know the ones I’m talking about. At some point they’ve been placed on the top of you dog or cat’s head to embarrass them for the sake of a goofy family photo. Well, seeing as it is our first Christmas this year with both Shadow and Whiskey, you’d think that we would attempt this much abused holiday tradition, but I just couldn’t do it. It was bad enough that I’ve had Whiskey rockin’ a Christmas sweater.
It seemed like the nicer (and kinder) idea was to give the two newest members of the family some new Christmas collars.
Fancy dog collars run for about $10-20, but making your own costs no more than $5 (and even less if your dog is a half pint like the Whiskinator).
You don’t need to limit yourself to just Christmas collars – the possibilities are endless. Plus if you ever want to replace the nylon webbing or make a new collar, you can reuse the hardware.

You’re so crafty, what a great idea! I still have Moo’s Santa hat from last year, and I’m debating if I should it or not….he always looks so pained when I put it on him!

Terrific idea, and a perfect way to make a dog collar that stands out from the rest at the park! Make sure to use quality nylon webbing like you can find here and you’ll have a collar that will last for years: http://www.countrybrookdesign.com/webbing-and-hardware/nylon-webbing
