Dog tag necklaces make a fashion accessory for adults and children alike. Dog tags, purchased online or in stores, can be personalised to create a message or image that can then be displayed on a ball chain necklace. This process can be done in the home, with an engraving machine, or in stores such as pet stores and engraving shops.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Purchase an unmarked dog tag in the material and colour you wish. These can be found in most pet stores or online.

  2. 2

    Engrave your dog tag, either at home with an engraving machine or in a pet store, to show whatever you would like displayed on your necklace. Many engraving shops will also work on dog tags, which gives a more personalised result than a machine.

  3. 3

    Attach your engraved dog tag onto a ball chain, adding a clasp to the end of the chain.

  4. 4

    Place the necklace around your neck and fasten the clasp in the back to wear your dog tag chain necklace.
