How to Make a Dog Bone Wreath

Updated April 17, 2017

A wreath constructed of dog bone treats makes a fun and festive gift or craft project for the dog lovers in your life. Dog wreaths also work as gifts to pets holidays such as Christmas, Easter or birthday celebrations. The wreath can be hung with the bones being removed as needed to give to the pup. This is a relatively easy craft project that can be completed by those without a lot of crafting skills, as well as a fun project for children and young adults.

Tie the ribbon to the foam wreath. Wind the ribbon around the wreath diagonally until you make a full circle around it. Cut the ribbon and tape it to the back of the wreath.

Cut five nine inch lengths of ribbon and ten five inch lengths to tie the bones to the wreath. The longer pieces of ribbon are for the larger bones and the shorter pieces are for the smaller bones.

Tie the five large bones to the wreath with the ribbon. Attach them by placing the bone on the wreath and wrapping the ribbon around the bone, under the ribbon that you initially placed diagonally on the wreath. This allows the bones to be taken off one at a time to give to the dog.

Attach the smaller bones in the same way, leaving a few inches of space free at the bottom of the wreath for the bow.

Add any additional dog treats or toys to the wreath with additional ribbon.

Tape or tie the bow to the bottom of the wreath to finish the project.
