DIY Pet CollarThis Valentine’s Day while you are 
celebrating with cards, candies, flowers and a nice dinner, make sure your four-legged friend is all dolled up for the holiday as well with Janny Pie’s “Puppy Love Valentine’s Day 
Pet Collar.”

This is a very simple project that will give your cat or dog some extra style when it’s too late for Jingle Bell collars and too early for Easter Bunny ears.

What You Need

• 5” of extra ribbon for bow
• Piece of felt at least 5” x 3”—Shown: Red pattern embossed felt
• Embellishment—Shown: Inspirables Metal Stickers (Engagement series)
• Metal ring, jump ring, or string to tie tag to collar—Shown: 9mm round jump ring

How to Make It
