Remember the Winter Wonderland Dog Sweater I made for Chuy using Tulip craft supplies? Well, they also sent me some iron on crystals and I just had to find a reason to use them! I picked up this red dog collar from the Dollar Tree to do a little experimenting and it actually came out really cute!
In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a DIY Christmas Bling Collar for your Dog or Cat! Be sure to check out our DIY Pet Project Gallery for lots of other ideas and don’t miss our DIY Ugly Christmas Sweater for Dogs!
Supplies You Need
- Dog or Cat Collar
- Tulip® Glam-It-Up Iron-On Crystals (order online here)
- Tulip® Cordless Heat Setting Tool (order online here)
- 30 minutes or less
Step by Step Instructions
Open the collar and adjust it to the length needed for your pet’s neck. The reason for doing this is because once you’ve put the bling on, it’s difficult to slide the adjuster tab over it.
Lay crystals in place and space them accordingly on the collar.
Take out the heat transfer tool, move button to ON position and hold button down to heat.
Using the Tulip Cordless Heat Setting Tool, hold it on top of each crystal for a few seconds allowing it to adhere to the collar. Repeat until finished.
Note: Hard pressure is not needed, heat will melt glue. Too much pressure will cause tip to slip.
The Finished Product
Your finished product should look something like this:
