Dog Crafts! DIY Beaded Dog Collar- updated with more sizes

September 30, 2015 , In: Crafts, DIY , With: One Comment

My bestie Chris is dad to my favorite dog- Mabel. She is a teacup chihuahua who never barks and just wants to steal your baby carrots. When she needed a new collar, I jumped at the chance to combine Chris and my two shared loves- Mabel and Pocahontas. We’re all about a good navajo print, dreamcatcher, or aqua/tan combo.

I like my crafts like I like my life- what I call “elevated camp.” This project fits right in. We’re using the very same bead loom you used at summer camp, but with a refined color palette and pattern. While you could weave skipping dolphins or your best friends name, we’re sticking to classic prints that befit a dog of Mabel’s undeniable sophistication.

Click below to download the FREE pattern, complete with multiple patterns for three different sized collars- extra small, medium, and large.

    I can’t wait to weave a beautiful collar! I might actually make a bracelet instead! I can use a xs dog collar! I think it might look really great! This was an inspiration! Loved the Mabel pics!
