DIY Water Bottle Dog Toy
 
Have you seen the toys at the pet store that you slip a water bottle inside? The are great for dogs from small to large, there is something satisfying about the crinkle and crunch of these toys that your dog really gets into. Even Davinia and Indiana who don’t really play with toys will give one of these some play time action once in a while. In all honesty they would be more likely to fall asleep with their new toy then actually caught playing with it. We brought in a playful puppy on this one because we wanted to know that not only would you be able to create this yourself but that your dog would want to play with it. This is the puppy after a really exciting playtime with the water bottle toy. You know puppies play hard sleep hard 😉 All of the pictures of the puppy playing were a blur of motion so we decided to wait until playtime was over and nap time was happening to snap a few pictures. As you can tell someone did not want to lose their new toy so snuggled with it for nap time.

If you have a little bit of craft felt and an empty water bottle on hand you have the makings of a free and super cute dog toy- but even if you have to pick up two sheets of felt at the craft store they are only .25 each, so it is still a really frugal craft. Less than 15 minutes and your dog will be playing with this adorable toy you made yourself. All you have to do is squeeze the bottle a little to make noise and the dogs go wild, racing to grab it and run off for playtime. I try to use as little glue as possible in case it gets torn apart, reinforcing with stitches helps it last longer. Plus at .25 a piece of felt you can afford to pick up a few pieces at a time if you know your dog is a strong chewer. Recycle the old chewed water bottle and replace with a new empty one.

Directions to create your easy DIY Water bottle dog toy:
Trim the yellow felt down to the size of your water bottle, below the neck.
Add a thin line of hot glue down the edge of long side, immediately press bottle into glue.
Roll felt around bottle, and secure other side with a thin line of glue.
On the longer length of green felt- fold 1/2” inward, secure with glue, repeat on opposite site.
Wrap green felt around bottle on the opposite side of where yellow felt is secure.
Add several stitches by hand to secure it to yellow felt.
Bundle up excess felt on the end, tie ribbon tightly around bundle. Fasten each ribbon to felt with a couple stitches. Your stiches do not have to award winning the idea is to ensure that

  10. That really is something most dogs would love to bat around, chase and chew. Even my cat loves the sound of crinkling cellophane and will try to steal any of it that isn’t bolted down by my hand!
