This pampered pet's look comes together quickly with bath puffs, rubber bands, and two pairs of pink socks. A jeweled collar and a painted-on black nose provide the perfect finishing touches for our fab Fifi.
Cut each puff's center cord, then stretch out the puff and cut it into thirds. Wrap a rubber band around the center of each. You'll need 23 pieces.
Fold each piece of bubble wrap in half and insert it into a sock. Tie the socks together (we used calf-length socks; if you use knee socks, trim them as needed) [A].
Slide three puff pieces on the knotted socks, positioning them around the knot, then ease
the headband through their rubber bands. Slide a
puff piece onto the toe of each sock [B].
TAIL: Snip the hook off the coat hanger. Fold the cut ends down, then use duct tape to wrap the central section as shown. Insert the hanger into a sock [C].
Fold the sock lengthwise around the hanger and slide puff pieces onto the center and toe. Bend the hanger's end as shown; you'll secure this hook inside the back of your child's waistband with duct tape [D].
WRIST AND ANKLE BANDS: Use rubber bands to loop four puff pieces onto each hair elastic [E]. Twist the bands to tighten them.
COLLAR: Glue the jewels in a row on the central portion of the ribbon (leave the ends unadorned so you can tie the collar at the back of your child's neck). Draw a dog tag on the paper, punch a hole in it, and loop it on to the collar with a rubber band.
