Up until now, I have been keeping the dog's treats in the box they come from the pet store in. It rarely closes properly and her chewy treats end up crunchy very quickly. This week I decided to make an upcycled dog treats jar to keep her treats a bit more fresh. Not that SHE is all that picky. This is the dog that likes to eat bunny poop and drink out of the toilet. But, since I love the often annoying little canine that rules this house, I think she deserves fresh dog treats! So, if you have an empty jar or two lying around, try making an upcycled dog treats jar for your own pooch. It is incredibly easy to do and a very inexpensive DIY project that even your kids could help you do. I will include a few photos of our DIY dog treat jar and some affiliate links for products that you might need.
Upcycled Dog Treats Jar

Mod Podge and applicator to adhere the paper to the jar.

dog treats to put in the jar!
Make sure the empty jar and lid you are using for your dog treats container are clean and dry.
Using the hot glue gun, attach the wooden cabinet knob to the center top of the jar lid. Let dry.
Paint the lid of the jar and the wood cabinet knob the desired color. Add pawprints or other decorative elements if you are artistic!
Cut the scrapbook paper to the desired length and width you will need to wrap around the jar
Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper and attach to the jar. Hold firmly in place for a minute or two until set.
Once the Mod Podge is dry just add your dog treats to the jar, screw on the lid and you are done!
