Cabbie at The Pumpkin Patch

Make your Life’s Journey with your dog that much more special with 100% Natural Made in the USA True Chews® Dog Treats. Treat them well! We brought the dogs out on a fun adventure day recently and captured some amazing memories. We visited Petco to stock up on True Chews Treats, then headed out to the pumpkin patch with the dogs wearing their DIY adorable dog collars! We went to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins to decorate for the dogs and to display for our Trick Or Treaters next week. 

My goodness, Cabbie looks like a perfect little princess in her DIY Dog Collar, and the dog-inspired pumpkins I decorated once we got home, turned out so cute! Keep reading to see how the pumpkins look.

Treats At The Pumpkin Patch

We headed to Petco and the display of True Chews immediately caught the dogs' attention. We chose a couple of their favorite "flavors" and then walked them around the store a bit more. The Petco staff was super friendly and even gave us a few $1.00 off coupons AND free samples from this cute sample station display. The dogs had a great time and had NO idea how much fun they were in for next.


These tulle and elastic dog collars are adorable and we had so much fun with them at the pumpkin patch. Everyone commented on how cute and festive the dogs were - I had NO idea how much of a positive reaction they would get. 

To make the collars for our big dogs, I used black elastic a bit of ghost fabric, cute Halloween ribbons, and tulle in black and orange. I'd recommend not getting the tulle that looks like netting(shown in the bucket below), because it's a bit scratchy, but the softer tulle worked super well. 


35-40 strips of tulle at 20" x 3" each, if you use tulle by the yard. If you're using the roll of tulle, then around 30 strips at 20" each would be great.  

8-12 pieces of Halloween ribbon at 15" each

Black elastic - Measure elastic to fit loosely around the dog's neck.

1.) Cut all strips and also tie elastic into a circle. Make sure it's loose enough to fit comfortably, but tight enough where it won't fit over their ears off their head.

2.) Attach two strips of tulle at a time to the elastic. Take the two strips of tulle, fold them in half, then use a loop knot to secure the middle of the tulle to the elastic. Continue in alternating colors until the collar is full-looking. This takes a little while but is SO cute and worth the work!

3.) Tie ribbon pieces onto elastic collar evenly spaced over the whole collar until done. Enjoy!

These were a couple of the pumpkins we chose at the pumpkin patch, and I simply stuck dog-printed stickers all over them. I wanted to use dog bone shaped stickers, but surprisingly found none. So, these pupkins would actually be cute for cats or dogs!
