Are you looking for creative ways to include your furry friend in your holiday festivities? Try making one (or all) of these dog-friendly ornaments!

Salt Dough Ornaments: This classic option is easy to make; you’ll need 4 cups of flour, 1 cup of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Mix the ingredients together to form dough, and then roll it out on a piece of parchment paper. Press your dog’s paw into the dough and cut out your desired shape. Use a straw to punch a hole for the string while the dough is still soft. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees, place the ornaments on a baking sheet, and bake them for approximately an hour, or until they’re hard. Once they’ve cooled, paint your ornament and add a string for display.

Photo Globe Ornament: This fun and unique option involves taking a clear plastic ornament from a craft store and cutting a photo of your dog in a circular shape to fit inside. Roll the photo and slide it into the ornament, and then add some confetti or glitter to the bottom. Add a string and hang on your tree.

Wooden Picasso: For this crafty option, take a flat wooden item (preferrable one with a hole for adding a string) and place it in a ziplock baggie. Add pet-friendly paint, seal the baggie, and smear peanut butter on the outside of the wooden craft. Allow your dog to lick the peanut butter and paint his or her unique design. Once satisfied, take out the wooden craft and let it dry. Add a string and display on your tree. Don’t forget to use a Sharpie to write your pup’s name and the year on the back of each ornament.

We hope you enjoy making these crafts with your furry friend! If you’re already swamped with holiday preparations, consider scheduling your pup for our Arts & Crafts day at The Ranch, where your furry friend can make little wooden ornaments that they’ll take home.
