I have seen this idea circulating on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. I really love it, I made a few extra for gifts as well.
I cut the boards. It was my first time using the table saw. Not a scary as I thought.
Then I stained them. After that my hubby did pocket holes on the back with the router.
Then I stapled the fabric in place.
I used thick thread to tighten and tie a knot. I needed help with this to keep it tight.
That’s it. It took about 1 hour start to finish. I made 3.
I decided I needed a place to put the leashes. We got one more pup about a month after I made this…Now I have to make another one to put our new girl’s name on it! In case you are counting…yes that makes three. We are a little crazy! (Edit: And then we added a forth after this was written!)
I stained the board, I was lucky and found a scrap piece that was just perfect! Then I have my husband help me attach the hooks and the bracket for the jar.
I cut my vinyl on my silhouette cameo and then painted.
So I made a HUGE mistake that actually turned out really cool. My vinyl bled a little…I will be using the modge podge method next time. So I tried to clean it up and ended up making a bigger mess. I figured I would try to stain again over the paint and see what happened. It actually came out cool and made the lettering look a little aged! So I would do this again next time, I really love the look.
Love really is a four-legged word in this house!
