The stockings are hung on the gate that surrounds our wood stove, just waiting to be filled. There’s a Santa stocking for our son, and a cute snowman for our daughter. This year there is a fuzzy red one as well, just waiting to be stuffed with goodies for the dog. One of the presents she’ll be enjoying is a simple homemade dog toy made from an old t-shirt.
To make this DIY tug-of-war toy for your family pet, you just need an old t-shirt. If you want to make it multi-colored you could use a couple different colored t-shirts.
Once you have the t-shirts you’re going to use, cut them into 1 inch thick strips. Tie six strips together at one end.
Separate the strips into pairs and braid them. Finish it by tying it off at the opposite end.
For a thicker tug-of-war toy try using nine strips of t-shirt instead.
Our family dog is going to be so excited when she pulls this homemade dog toy out of her little red stocking on Christmas morning. I bet your dog will love it, too!
