How to Make DIY Dog Advent Calendar

I drew out a tree on paper and divided it into sections. Then I traced the patterns onto green felt and cut them out. Plus, I had to cut out the trunk from the brown felt. Then I glued them all onto the poster board and each other.

I added the numbers to dot stickers and placed them on the tree in a strategic manner. Then had to think about how to add the bones to the tree because I couldn't use glue to hold them on there or else the dogs couldn't enjoy the treats. I decided to take some needle and thread and sew them onto the tree through the poster board.

The tree still looked like it was still a bit bare, so I added the red bows.

It still wasn't complete without the star at the top of the tree. I put a note on the yellow star for you to know that's a good spot to put your dog's name on it.

The gifts under the tree make it look like it's fully ready for Christmas.

This is a simple Christmas craft to do with the grandkids. Your dog is sure to appreciate obtaining the doggie treats each day up until Christmas's grand arrival.
