7 Best DIY Holiday Decorations With Your Cute Christmas Puppy
December 9, 2022
The holiday season is the perfect time to get crafty and create cute decorations for your home with your cute Christmas puppy. We’ve gathered some of our favorite ideas for DIY Christmas decorations that are both easy and adorable.
A Christmas Tree For Your Cute Christmas Puppy
- First, you will need to make a tree out of a cardboard box.
- Make sure the tree is big enough for your cute Christmas puppy to be able to climb up and down easily. If not, add more boxes until it’s the right size.
- Cut out large strips of green paper and glue them all around the edge of your cardboard box tree shape (you can use regular household glue or spray adhesive if you have some). You may need two or three layers depending on how thick your paper is, just keep gluing until it looks like a proper Christmas tree.
- For decorative purposes only (or for extra protection from chewing), cut out smaller pieces of red paper in various sizes and shapes (pointy stars are good) and glue those onto each section as well, these will act as decorations for your new pup-friendly holiday decoration. Feel free to add other types of decorations too, tinsel garland works well here because it doesn’t shed fluff everywhere as some fake plants do.
Mini Gingerbread House With Your Cute Christmas Puppy
Mini gingerbread houses are the perfect DIY holiday decoration for you and your cute Christmas puppy. All you need are a few simple ingredients, like gingerbread cookies, royal icing, and candy. You can also decorate your mini house with candies, ornaments, and other delectable treats.
Adorable Cute Christmas Puppy Stocking
You’ll need a stocking, some ribbon, and scissors. If you’re feeling crafty, head over to the craft store and pick out some fabric scraps in colors that match your puppy’s coat. You can make the entire stocking out of fabric or just add some decorative trim to an existing one.
Now it’s time to decorate. Cut off the top of your stocking so that it has a straight edge when placed on its side. Once you have done this, cut out two circles of fabric slightly larger than each end of your stockings by 1 inch. Place these over each end of your newly created “dog” sock and sew them down using small stitches around all edges except for where they overlap at the top seam, this will form an opening so you can pull items through when Christmas rolls around.
Cute Christmas Puppy Tree Ornament
- dog collar (or other small, sturdy fabric strip)
- Christmas tree ornament or another small object to affix to the collar
- embroidery floss, ribbon, or yarn (can substitute with a glue gun)
Cut a long strip of fabric from your dog’s collar. If you’re using a non-fabric item to hang the ornament on their collar (like embroidery floss), wrap it around the dog’s neck instead and tie it in place. Make sure not to cut off any safety tags if they have them.
- Place a couple of bowls of water in the freezer. The size and number of bowls depending on how many snow doggies you want to make, but two medium-sized ones will work well for most people.
- When they’re frozen, use an ice pick or other sharp object to cut out the shapes from the bowl’s surface. If you don’t have one on hand, a small paring knife can be used instead, just be careful not to accidentally puncture the plastic when stabbing it into the ice.
- Now comes your chance for artistic expression: You can either carve away at each dog until its form resembles that of an actual pup (or maybe even one specific breed) or just go wild with whatever crazy shapes come into your mind. When finished making your doggie(s), put them back in their respective ice cubes so they don’t melt while waiting for their new owner/resident artiste/cute Christmas puppy.
- For best results when trying this craft at home with your cute Christmas puppy around, we recommend getting creative while she is sleeping off her excitement from opening all her gifts on Christmas morning.
Cute Christmas Puppy Reindeer Antlers
- Felt red, white, and black
- Needle and thread (or glue)
- Fold your felt in half so that you have two identical rectangles of fabric. Cut a small rectangle from the middle of one side of each rectangle to make antlers. You can also cut out legs if you prefer, but this will be less stable when you wear them on your head. This is just an option. If you don’t have time for this step now, keep your antlers intact for now and sew them on later. That way they won’t get lost in the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations at home before Christmas Eve arrives.
Red and Green Doggy Sweater
If you’re looking for something simple, you can use a red and green sweater. If you have more time than money, consider using a scarf or bandana instead. It’s not that different from what people do with their dogs anyway, putting sweaters on them when it gets cold. And if your puppy is already wearing a bow tie (because why wouldn’t he be?), then all you need is a little ribbon to make it extra festive.
Now you’ll have some cute DIY decorations for the cutest puppy ever, your very own Cute Christmas Puppy
You can make decorations for your home, or even put them on your Christmas tree.
You can also make cute decorations that will be perfect to give as gifts to others who love their dogs just as much as you do. Your friends and family are sure to love this adorable holiday decoration idea. And if they don’t have dogs themselves, maybe they know someone who does. You could always give it away with a bag of dog treats inside. It’s a win-win situation, either way, everybody wins because everyone loves puppies.
I hope that you enjoyed these cute DIY decoration ideas for your cute Christmas puppy. Now you can make your own decorations and have fun doing it.
