DIY: Dapper Pet Collar

With both my cats dressed to impress, I am regularly asked where I bought their dapper dress shirt looking collars. The secret is that I made them in one minute for less than a dollar!! These collars are great to make for a costume, special occasion, or just to wear for the heck of it!

All you need is a baby dress shirt (or larger depending on the size of your pet). I found this one at a yard sale for a quarter…thrift stores are also a great place to find a shirt for cheap. This one is a 6-12 month size, which fits my cats perfectly. Although this shirt has buttons, I find it best to use a shirt with snaps because it is easier to take on and off my pets.
You will also need scissors…that’s it! No sewing needed!
