How to make a crafty little leash holder for your beloved fur-buddy.
Guess what? We got a puppy! Well, she has been with us a couple of months now but seems like she has been a part of this family forever. Time for her to have a place on the wall. You would not believe how much stuff she has already collected... Not spoiled though.....nah.... Jellybean is a Yorkshire Terrier cute little thing. Behavior wise however, I think she is a Yorkshire terrorist. But we go to school every week to learn manners and she is learning..... slow but sure.
I want to show you how I made this little wall hanging to keep some of her accoutrements handy.
This is a fun and easy project. With proxxon tools it is super simple.
Equipment and Supplies:
Proxxon scroll saw
Proxxon OZI/E detail sander
Drill with drill bits..
3 cup hooks
embellishments of your choice
spray sealer of your choice. I used krylon triple thick glossy.
The first thing I did was to draw a pattern of my bone onto the piece of wood.. This was easy enough to just freehand it. Then I cut it out using the Proxxon scroll saw. I sanded it smooth using one of my favorite tools, the Proxxon OZI/E detail sander. I like my edges slightly rounded and this is easy to do with this tool.
Next step: Personalize it:
My handwriting is not the greatest so I used my computer to design the "Jellybean" I will cut out. Once I had it how I liked, I printed it onto regular paper. I used adhesive spray on the back of the paper, waited a few seconds until it got tacky and stuck it on the "bone".
Decorate your bone anyway you like. Hang it on a wall using a screw or nail. I catch my little Jellybean looking up at it every so often. She knows it is hers and I think she likes it. Anyway, I had fun making it. Catch ya next time Carol
