Yes, I will be the first one to admit that my dog has more collars than I have shoes. That is 100% accurate.
Yes, it’s a rough life for Coco Bean! BUT I think I have stumbled upon something that might be life changing for dog owners: no-sew dog collar sleeves!
Okay, maybe it’s not life changing, but it is still pretty darn awesome.
Feeling extra snazzy? Just slide a DIY sleeve onto your dog’s collar and BAM you have a brand new look.

But I can’t sew, help!
Not to worry my fellow sewing-impaired friends. These sleeves don’t require any sewing and just a small sliver of your time. Well, unless you are making them for the whole neighbourhood, then it might take a tad longer.
Either way, I promise you will love these interchangeable dog collar sleeves!
With so many options available from fabric, to sequins, to trim and ribbon PLUS all of the collars you already own – the possibilities are endless!
Just follow the few quick steps below and prepare to be amazed.
How to Make a No-Sew Dog Collar Sleeve
You will need:
- Your choice of fabric
- Your choice of ribbon, trim, or sequins
- Hot glue & glue gun
- Dog collar
1. Gather fabric scraps or remnants from your local fabric store. Use your dog’s collar to measure how much fabric you will need to wrap around it.
If your collar have a buckle, be sure you leave enough room so that you don’t cover the buckle holes.
2. Wrap your fabric around the collar so that ends overlap one another. this part is very important, you don’t want to get any hot glue on your collar!
Trim excess fabric. Place a thin line of hot glue between the two overlapping layers and press down gently to bond. Once your sleeve is glued it should look just like a sleeve/tube, and it should easily slide on and off of your collar.
3. Next is the fun part! If you want to add a bit of glam to your sleeve, try adding your choice of ribbon or trim as a garnish. Just secure with a bit of hot glue and let set to dry.
We hope your pup loves their fancy new DIY dog collar sleeves!
