How to Make a Halo For Your Dog

Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: Mahalo expert Keltie Colleen shows you how to make a halo for your dog. Dressing in a festive holiday manner is not limited to your own wardrobe selections. You can make a halo for your dog to give him some holiday cheer. A halo suitable for small, medium or large dogs can be created using some simple supplies found at most craft stores in a short period of time. No advanced crafting skills are needed for this project. Creating an? angel's halo for your dog is a project suitable to perform with children under strict adult supervision due to the use of a hot glue gun. If you want to perform this craft with younger children, leave off the rhinestone decorations and monitor the metal wires at the end of pipe cleaners to avoid any accidents. Step 1: Collect Supplies --------------------------------------------------------------------- Obtain white pipe cleaners, a hot glue gun and rhinestones. You will also need a white headband that is covered in felt or you can purchase a basic white headband and cover it with white felt secured by hot glue. Be sure to purchase a headband that matches your dog's head size for maximum comfort. You may also need some doggie treats to coax your pet into wearing the halo after it is completed. Step 2: Create Halo --------------------------------------------------------------------- Take two of your pipe cleaners and twist them together to form one stronger unit. This twisting action is similar to how you would make a Christmas Candy Cane Reindeer. Your twisted pipe cleaners should come together at each end such that neither one is longer than the other. Fold your pipe cleaner in half, then place the bottom curved portion under the middle portion of your headband. Twist the pipe cleaners at the top of the headband to secure. Twist the ends about three-fourths of the way up your pipe cleaners. Make another wrapped pair of pipe cleaners. Make a circle with your pipe cleaners and attach the wires at the ends to form the halo shape. Attach your halo at the top of the pipe cleaner base that is already attached to your headband. Bend the halo so it rests perpendicular to the halo stem. Step 3: Decorate Halo --------------------------------------------------------------------- Take your glue gun or super glue and place a dab of glue along the outer edge of your halo. Place a rhinestone on top of the glue. Glue about 4 rhinestones spaced evenly across the front edge of your halo to add some sparkle to your final product. Adjust the size and number of rhinestones based on your personal preference. Read more by visiting our page at:
