First things first, select a simple and healthy dog treat recipe (our 52 Weeks of Treats eBook being a perfect resource!) and whip up a batch.

I chose the yummy ‘Pumpkin & Chia Biscuits’ and they made our apartment smell divine! Soda snuck in a few taste testing bites and licked her chops in approval.

Now, for the sparkly packaging…

How to Make a DIY Dog Treat Jar

What You’ll Need:

An empty glass jar, washed
Mod Podge or PVA glue
Sponge brush
Gift tag

Sparkly gold lid for DIY Dog Treat Jar Instructions:
  1. Remove the lid from the jar and brush on a coat of PVA glue along the top and sides of the lid.
  2. Begin sprinkling the glitter onto the lid until completely coated. Let dry for 10 minutes.
  3. Gently shake and tap the lid over craft paper to remove the loose glitter.
  4. To seal the glitter, brush on a very thin layer of PVA glue over top. Let sit for 10 minutes. The sealer will dry clear.
  5. Be sure the jar is clean and free of glitter and then fill with treats.
  6. Garnish with a bow and gift tag.

Now how pretty is that?!
