DIY Project: Felt Dog Ornaments

Happy Howlidays!   Every year I add to my ornament collection.  This year  I decided to try to sew some felt dog ornaments, and as you might guess, it was very easy!  Thanks to my sister, Alice G Patterson for the photos!

I think this would look cute on a tree or a wrapped gift.  We decided to personalize our store bought wreath by adding the felt dogs, dog treats and some ribbons and glass balls.

I hung my wreath on the front door.  My dogs would be going crazy trying to get the treats if the wreath was inside.  

Maybe the delivery people from UPS, Fed Ex and the post office wondered about this dog themed wreath, but if they’ve ever looked at the packages and mail they deliver, they would have realized this house has already gone to the dogs!
