Can you believe it is November already?? It seems this year is just flying by. Now that Halloween is over, all my kids can talk about is Christmas. This year, Kylie is all about making Christmas gifts. And since this is our first year with our dog Bentley, she has been excited to make something for him with his name on it! One of the things the kids love to do is take him for walks, but, let’s face it: Finding the leashes that are lost in our house can become a pain, so Kylie decided to make a DIY Pallet Leash Holder.
She didn’t want to just make Bentley a leash holder. She wanted to spoil him with some fun treats as well!! Kylie picked up a new toy for him too! We went to Fred Meyer to get our supplies, plus we also grabbed some treats and his favorite food: Purina Beneful! I personally love that the first ingredient in his Purina Beneful food is beef, and there is no added sugar either!! Kylie picked out the Beggin’ Strips (which smell like bacon and taste like bacon because they’re made with real bacon; you can’t beat bacon) and Purina DentaLife as his treats. Since his vet visit last month — and with an upcoming teeth cleaning — the kids are loving the fact that we can give him treats to help his oral health.
Now for Kylie’s craft!! She was so excited to make this for him and did most of the work by herself too (minus the power tools, she is only 11). I have to say, it is a lot of fun to watch her grow into such a great craft creator and create projects on her own.
DIY Pallet Leash Holder Supplies:
- 1 pallet board
- 2 double hooks
- Spray paint
- Paint brush
- Paint (for writing/decorating)
- Picture hangers
- Power drill
- Saw (optional)
DIY Pallet Leash Holder Directions:
- Choose your wood off of the pallet. We went for a wider than normal piece so there was enough room to paint Bentley’s name.
- Clean off your wood and sand if necessary so the paint will stick. Cut it down to the size you want.
- Spray paint your background color and the edges of the board. We noticed a large crack after we sprayed, so we chopped ours down with a saw after it dried.
- Use your drill to mount your hooks where you want them.
- Paint and decorate however you want. Kylie used our cardboard to practice her letters and had fun!! She chose to just put Bentley’s name on ours!!
