DIY Bandana Bow Tie For Dogs

Doggy fashion trends may come and go, but bandana bow ties will always be timeless. This easy DIY craft will keep your dog looking dashing on every walk.

You will need:

  • Bandana or square piece of fabric
  • Scissors
  • Your dog’s favorite collar

We used our exclusive Earth Rated bandana for this tutorial but feel free to use any fabric pattern your dog’s heart desires.

How to Make Your Bow Tie

Cut the bandana into two pieces, one small (1/3 the total bandana) and one larger (2/3 the bandana).

Fold the small piece into a long, narrow strip and fold the large piece into a rectangle.

Pinch the large piece into a bow tie shape, and wrap the small piece around it several times. Tie a knot to secure it in place.

Slide your dog’s favorite collar through the knot.

Hit the town!
