Default How to Make a belt into a pet collar

Here is a fun afternoon project that will add a little fare to your dogs wardrobe. Instead of buying your next dog collar, try making one out of an old belt. Some say dogs look like their owners and now they can dress like them too.

Recycle your old belt into a collar for your pet that is fashionable and easy to make.
You Will Need

* Belt
* Measuring tape
* Marker
* Awl
* Hammer
* Shears
* ID tag

Step 1: Choose belt

Choose a belt that is environmentally friendly, such as organic cotton or hemp.

Avoid braided belts, belts with large buckles or studs, and leather belts, which shrink if they get wet.

Step 2: Measure

Measure your petís neck, add 2 inches, and mark the length on the belt with the marker.

Step 3: Make a hole

Use the awl and hammer to make a hole at your mark.

Step 4: Trim and round the collar

Trim the belt 3 inches past the hole with the shears. Round the corners and trim loose threads with the shears.

Step 5: Test the fit and attach tags

Slip a couple of fingers between the collar and your petís neck to test for fit. Make sure the collar is secure but not too tight. Then attach the petís ID tag and go for a walk to show off their new collar.

Research shows that babies can tell the difference between an angry and a friendly dog bark, despite having little or no previous exposure to dogs.
