Top Dog Holiday Hat


  • A black hat (found this one in the doll section of Joann's - only 99 cents!)
  • Red ribbon
  • Green feathers
  • Red and white chenille stems
  • Elastic string
  • Stapler

  1. Measure your dog from one side of chin where ear lays to the other side. Cut two pieces of elastic string and staple them to the bottom of each side of the hat to help secure hat to head.

How super cute . I just sent this to my daughter-in-law for her fur baby. I can see him wearing this with a tie or the bow ties I have made for him. I want to make one in green for him to wear for St. Patrick's day by adding green ribbon around the brim or maybe paint shamrocks on the hat. You can make one for a girl dog by adding a big fluffy bow or adding glitter. See what you have in your craft room and design your own and let us see it by posting them. So simple and easy to do. How many are in?

I love this little hat, it is very Fagan like from Oliver Twist, my Mam has a proper cheeky chappie of a terrier and I think this might be right up his street to make for him! I think it would make my Mams day seen her little lad in this crack her right up!
