Happy December 1st fellow dog lovers!

Today officially marks the start of the Christmas season, and we’re wasting no time by creating these super easy, super fun DIY Christmas ornaments for dogs we think you and your best friend will LOVE.

And did we mention these gorgeous DIY Christmas baubles are filled to the brim with delicious dog treats…?

Being the obsessed dog mamas we are, we’re always looking for ways to include Ziggy and Sunny in all areas of our life – and that of course goes for our dog-friendly Christmas celebrations too. 

We just love the idea of homemade Christmas decorations inspired by your love for your pooch – it really couldn’t get more wholesome if we tried! After all, our dogs are our family, and there’s no better time to celebrate our love for our furry family members than at Christmas (besides, it’s called the silly season for a reason, right? The perfect excuse to unleash the crazy on our beloved fur children!)

Christmas-crazy-meets-crazy-dog-mama antics aside, there really is so much we love about these DIY dog treat baubles. Not only do they make a beautiful personalised addition to your Christmas tree, they are also the perfect homemade Christmas gift for your dog sure to get their tails wagging on Christmas Day.

Even better, these dog treat-filled baubles are such a thoughtful gift for your fellow dog-loving friends and family too! It’s so easy to make them in one big batch, so you can have one for yourself as well as all your loved ones. 

And just when you thought we had all the winners of our DIY dog treat Christmas ornaments covered, let’s not forget about the small pet businesses you can support too! By including a good assortment of treats in the baubles, not only does the mixture of colours and textures make for a more visually-appealing ornament, but it’s also a fun and unique way to support a few of your local small dog treats business this Christmas. You can see a list of the Australian dog treat brands whose yummy treats we included in our baubles below.

So, let’s get to it! If you would love to decorate your Christmas tree this festive season while showing just how much you love your pup, follow the simple steps below to make your very own homemade Christmas baubles for dogs.

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Print a photo of your dog (or all the dogs you’re gifting!) on to photo paper. We used 5×5 inches size, though a standard 6×4 is fine. Depending on the size of your bauble tag, you might need to reduce the size of your image so your pup’s face fits nicely.
  • Fill your baubles with your favourite dog treats (support your local businesses by purchasing a mix from different brands!) 
  • Once you’ve filled your bauble, close it and attach your ribbon. Set aside. 
  • Place the tag on top of your dog’s photo, ensuring their face fits within the tag. Draw around the tag, then cut around the outline.
  • Now, go ahead and glue the cut-out photo to the tag.
  • Attach the photo tag to the ribbon, along with your chosen tassel. 
  • Hang on your tree for Christmas Day, or gift to your dog-loving friends!

Optional: 

  • For a little extra sparkle, add a glittery initial to your bauble! Using a glue gun to write the letter, then sprinkle with your favourite coloured glitter. If (like ours) your glue gun sets instantly, you’ll need to sprinkle fast!
