like after it’s been cut and covered with masking tape. Right, the dog collars are decoupaged
with white glue and scrapbook papers.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Twist the paper covered wire into a circular shaped collar for a stuffed pet dog. The circumference should be approximately 2 1/4 inches across. This size will easily slip over the top of a standard sized plush pet dog measuring 5 inches tall when seated on it’s hind legs. If your doll’s dog is smaller simply use a shorter wire for it’s collar. Twist the ends together of several lengths of wire to determine what size works best for your doll’s pet.
  2. Cover the paper wire with masking tape.
  3. Decoupage the dog collar using any decorative scrap paper you wish and the white school glue. Let the glue dry over night.
  4. Slip a split ring onto the collar and then add a dog charm.
  5. Now squeeze the plush dog’s head a bit to fit the collar on over it’s head and around it’s neck.
