Dog-Bone Wreath
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Whether given to your own pet or a friend's Fido, this wreath with edible ornaments is the perfect pooch present.

What you'll need

  • 12-inch cardboard circle, or a 12-inch Styrofoam wreath (available at craft supply stores)
  • Scissors
  • 5 yards of ribbon and matching bow
  • Large dog bones
  • Dog toys
  • Tape
  • Evergreens, optional

How to make it

  1. If using the cardboard round, trace an 8-inch circle in the middle of it (a small mixing bowl or plate will be approximately the right size). With the scissors, cut out the inner circle, leaving a ring or wreath shape.

  2. Tape the ribbon onto the back of the cardboard wreath or tie it to the Styrofoam wreath and start winding it around the circle on a slight diagonal. Once you have come full circle, cut the ribbon and tape it down.

  3. Next, cut ten or so 9-inch lengths of ribbon for attaching the dog bones and toys. Attach eat treat separately by first placing the dog bone or toy on the wreath and securing it by placing a length of ribbon across it. Flip the wreath over and tie the ribbon securely in a knot, making sure there is no slack in the loop around the bone or toy. (This tying method allows the items to be removed one at a time without displacing the others.) Continue tying on the bones and toys in this fashion, leaving a 3-inch space for the bow between the first and the last treat.

  4. For a fuller look, tape greens onto the cardboard round or push the ends into the Styrofoam wreath. With the remaining length of ribbon, tie a loop on the back of the wreath at the top so that it can be easily hung for all to see -- especially the puppy dog.
