December is the season of gift-giving, so why not give you dog a few gifts too? While you may be budgeting your costs for holiday gifts for your human friends, this toy to give your dog will only cost you a few old t-shirts from your closet.


For this project, the only things you need are two gently used t-shirts that smell like you and a pair of scissors. Dogs who love rolling around in your laundry will love this toy even more.

(*Note: If you have more than two tees handy, you can use more and make a super colorful version!)

1. Start by cutting little 2-3” wide slits at the base of your shirts. After you’ve cut your slits, just rip along the slit and your t-shirt will have the perfect strips of fabric for the next step.

2. Gather your t-shirt strips and tie off one end. Divide your strips into thirds and braid them together.

3. Once you’ve braided down to the other end, tie up the bottom and cut any straggling t-shirt strips.

Whether this toy comes in handy during an epic tug-of-war battle or serves as a distraction to keep your pooch’s mind from wandering to the smelly trash can and dreams of gnawing the legs off the couch– it’s a simple and fun way to make something special for your four-legged friend.

This toy goes along with our Pet Tip #9. Read all of our dog care tips here.
