Dogs need holiday presents too, and this Dog Treat Wreath is a perfect holiday present that doubles as a decoration and lets you give the tastiest treats to your furry friends!
A few years ago I wrote about Pet Adoption Month, and encouraged everyone to consider adopting a dog. At least one person took action after my post, my Mom, who decided she needed a dog of her own. So she adopted Alex, a cute little pup, from the Humane Society.
Alex is very happy in his new home, so I wanted to make him a special Christmas present, and decided he would appreciate a wreath of dog treats. This craft is simple, and the result is really cute!
- Milk Bones and Pup Pepperoni dog treats
- one or two colors of Christmas ribbon
- piece of cardboard
- First I cut a circle out of a piece of cardboard. I just traced around a dinner plate, and then used a bowl to trace around for the inner circle. Then I cut the wreath base out.
- I painted the wreath base green, since the cardboard will show through on the wreath.
- Then I tied the red ribbon to the cardboard, and wrapped it around the treats to hold them on the wreath base. I was worried the treats would fall out, but they actually held very easily.
- When I got to the end of the circle I tied the ribbon underneath. I used a green ribbon to make a bow for the bottom and tied it to one of the treats.
I put the wreath aside to wrap for Christmas, but unfortunately my dog Dodger found it and he ate most of the treats off the wreath! So I had to take it all apart and remake it with new treats, and this time I boxed it up and mailed it right away!
It is fun to make cute doggy gifts! How do you treat your pets this holiday season?

That wreath is super cute and I know a few people who’d love one of these.
Cute idea, especially for pet lovers! <3
We do not have any dogs but this is the cutest idea ever! Then when Christmas is done your furbaby can have lots of yummy treats!
That is too cute. Plus perfect for any pet lover especially if they own a dog.
That is just the cutest thing ever! I want to do this for my dog next year.
How adorable! My dog would go crazy over this wreath (and my kids would think it was pretty doggone cute!)
How cute is that! My dogs would go nuts for that and would not leave it alone. I wouldn’t be able to hang it. They love those treats.
This looks awesome. Wonderful festive pet idea.
This is such a cute idea! But I know my dog Austin would jump up and eat all the bones! HAHA
I love this idea. It would be a great holiday gift for all of our dog loving friends and family!
This is such a cute idea – the wreath for the doggie treats.
This is so awesome – I’m doing it next year! 🙂
I absolutely love the idea of this! There are quite a few friends with dogs that I’d like to make this as a gift for.
What a fantastic idea. My sister has a couple dogs and she would love to make this for them. I am going to share this post with her.
This is just such a cute idea. I love using the dog treats as decor! I might need to make one for the next holiday.
This is such a great idea to give to my friends’ and family’s dogs as a special gift this Christmas.I always try to remember them too in the gift giving but usually it’s just a boring treat – this is adorable and so fun! Thanks for sharing this.
HOw could you modify that, so that we could give the dogs one bone a day, without the wreath falling apart?
