A Bow in Her Hair

I meant to post about this earlier, but Halloween came and went so fast that I didn't have a chance. I had planned on taking Scout to the Halloween Festival before it was canceled, so of course I wanted her to look cute. I purchased a bee costume for her (that is hilarious), but I was worried she would get hot and not want to wear it the entire time.

I thought that instead of her having to wear the costume the entire time that at some point I could take off her costume and replace it with a cute bow or hair decoration. I think I have probably told you this before, but Scout hates bows. The first time she was groomed they put bows in her hair and she definitely wasn't happy. Thankfully I was able to capture her disgust at this on film (see pic below). This picture still makes me giggle!


I decided to think outside the box, and I created this collar for her. All it took was a cheap collar, some hot glue, and a little ribbon.


She was more than happy to wear this type of bow, and it looked so cute on her. Here is a picture of her wearing her bow collar. I'm sorry you can't see her little face. She was busy playing with favorite toy.

Even though this was a Halloween collar, you can make this collar for your dog for any occasion-all you have to do is change the color of the ribbon. I am going to make her a red bow collar next, so she can help cheer on the "dawgs" during the next game day. The bow collar is a fun and cheap accessory for your pooch. Oh, and it is easy to make!

That first picture is hilarious. It reminds me of one of my dogs. I love the idea of the collar. My dog's don't have long enough hair for a bow, so I may be doing this for mine! Thanks for the idea

What a cutie!

I love this idea, so genius! I'd attempt this with my Sophie but I know something this cute wouldn't last on her, she'd find a way to rip it off.

She's so cute! I want to make a Christmas one for my dog (even though he's a boy, I think a manly Christmas bow would be okay)!
