Upcycled Dog Treats Jar to Keep Fido’s Treats Fresh!

Last Updated on May 4, 2016 by Diane Hoffmaster

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.

  1. This is such a cute idea! My two furbabies will be so happy they'll be able to see their treats. Of course, I'll be happier because it looks so much better than trying to zip those crazy treat bags up.
  2. This is a really cute idea. I could see making these jars for so many different things in my house. Even a cookie jar for the kids would be fun!
  3. What a fun way to reuse jars! I've always recycle jars like that because they aren't very "pretty", but adding the knob makes them so cute!
    • the little knob is very inexpensive from most home supply stores and give it a nice, decorative look to it!
  4. We don't have a dog, but our cat gets treats and this would be a great idea for that as well. Or how about a secret chocolate jar for us... we need treats too!
  5. What a great idea! We go through pickels so fast in our house, this would make a nice project for my daughter and I to do.
