Anyone else still in a turkey coma?
Somehow even after 3 days of stuffing my face with Thanksgiving food and pie, I’m still not quite ready to say goodbye to one of my favorite holidays. That is until I remembered Christmas is around the corner and it’s officially acceptable to burn my cinnamon scented candles and blast Christmas music while cleaning and baking. Oh and eat endless amounts of Christmas cookies…without feeling an ounce of guilt.
Nope, no guilt here over that triple batch of double chocolate chip cookies that magically disappeared in 3 days…
Don’t look at me. Rosie did it.
Speaking of, this year is Rosie’s first Christmas so Steve and I are going all out with the Christmas decor and gifts for her, including a new homemade treat jar!
Yes, she’s a spoiled one but what can I say? It’s her first Christmas and I’m a sucker for any excuse to go to Target. With a location right next to my office and another near my home, you can basically say I live at Target. They have everything I need for the home, holidays and even Rosie so I’ve decided I’m moving in. I’m thinking in the dog aisle since it’s conveniently located between the beauty and food aisles and I find myself wandering through there every time, especially when there’s a sale like the one below.
Starting the week of December 4, receive a Target exclusive coupon for $10 off a $40 purchase of Purina products when you text PETS10 to 827438. And trust me with all of Purina‘s product options including endless flavors of dog food, treats and Rosie’s favorite; Busy Bones, you’ll have no trouble spending $40.
Plus it will give you an excuse to make this adorable treat jar that makes for the perfect holiday gift for your pup! Rosie obviously loves her’s;)
DIY Dog Treat Jar
-Glass jar with removable lid and wide opening ( I found this one at Hobby Lobby)
- Remove lid from jar and spray paint to completely cover lid. I did two coats on mine and let it dry for about 30 minutes.
- Print free printable and cut out the outline of the reversed version. (No need to cut middles out such as the inside of the “e”.)
- Place cut out word on back side of glitter tape and trace the outline with a sharpie. Then using finely pointed scissors, cut the traced outline.
- Lastly flip the cut out glitter word over and with a pencil draw the middle cut outs. (I eyeballed it, but you can also cut the middles out and trace them on as well.) After the middles are drawn on, use your scissors to cut them out.
- Remove clear backing to stick the adhesive word to the jar, fill with treats and cover with the lid.
Do you have a dog or cat in your family? What are you planning to do for them this holiday season? Any fun holiday traditions?
