Pretty in Pearls

Sometimes crafts are just meant to be cute.
To give you a smile.  A reminder that life can be airy and fun.
This is one of those crafts.

Scrolling through Pinterest I found this and instantly fell in love!
I knew that I just had to make one for the reigning princess of the house.

12 Days of Cheer! DIY Christmas Eve Outfit for your Dog via Ammo the Dachshund

Besides falling head over hills for this 'shirt and tie' found at Ammo the Daschund, I couldn't stop smiling at how absolutely adorable little Ammo is in it.  I had to find a way to make this work for my girl and it hit me...what's more girly than  pearls.  I remembered I had an old pink collard shirt I no longer wear and a string of pearls meant for our Christmas tree, just what I need to get started.


Step One:  Go through closet and find shirt.

Pink Gap Shirt - perfect!


Step Two:  Cut off collar.

Sharp scissors and a steady hand are all that's needed


Step Three: Iron collar {not necessary unless collar is extremely wrinkled like mine}.

A good pressing.

Step Four: Grab clear jewels, button brad and pearls. Use hot glue gun to decorate. {Sorry no pic of this.  There was a fight between me and the hot glue gun and well...let's just say I wasn't the winner.}


Step Five: Use doggie treats to entice your princess into a photo shoot.





She is our beautiful girl...Pretty in Pearls!
I love that I was able to make this for her.  Mama absolutely loves her fur baby!
You can learn a little about how she became a part of our lives by checking
out the post For a Cause.  And in the meantime....

Thanks Kathleen! When I saw the original I just about died...too cute for words! Yes, I think every little doggie should have one of these -- particularly at family picture time! :-)
