This year for Valentine’s Day I knew that I wanted to come up with an idea for something that would be a cute gift for a girl and her dog. I called up my A team (my sister Alice and my daughter, Abby) and we made prototypes of my dogs to share with you here.
This is a really simple and inexpensive project that could easily be done with kids.
- Milk-Bone Dog Biscuits
- Wooden heart or other unfinished wood cut out
- Mod Podge and brush
- Spray Paint for lids
- Ribbon or other embellishments
- Hammer and nails/ drill to make holes in the lid
Trace heart on cardstock. Cut out the inside of the heart, leaving a frame to use as a guide for the photo.
Position the heart on the photo. Trace the heart on the photo and then cut the photo out.
Next spread Modge Podge on the heart. Place photo on the cut-out.
Spray paint the lids. You can drill a hole in the lids, or hammer a nail in to make a hole. Drilling was easier for me.
Add ribbon and whatever embellishments you like to the jar. Finally, fill with Milk-Bones.
You can also use a wooden cut-out and glue it to a ribbon to decorate a jar.
I still haven’t outgrown the need to cut out paper hearts for Valentine’s Day!
When I was invited to do a post for Milk-Bone Dog Biscuits, I immediately did some research to see where they are made. Happily, they are made in the US as they have been since 1908! Milk-Bone is currently having a contest to win some great prizes! The first way to win is to pick up a box of Milk-Bone Biscuits with the Find Love Inside branding on the box. If you find a Red Colored Milk-Bone with the word LOVE on it you win $5,000 and a lifetime supply of Milk-Bone Biscuits. You can also enter by visiting Milk-Bone Contest for another chance to win $1,000 and a year supply of Milk-Bone Biscuits.
