Turn Old Shirts into a DIY Dog Toy

Sometimes it feels like you spend tons of money on toys that your pup destroys in just a few days. Instead, use some old cotton shirts to make a fun braid toy for free.

Your dog will have just as good a time with this DIY toy, you won’t have to shell out any money, and you’ll get rid of a few old shirts (plus, if you have more shirts, you can make it again!). Here’s how to make it:

Cut nine 20inx2in strips and knot them together at one end.

Split the strips into threes and braid them together. You’re essentially creating three stronger strips for the braid by dividing the nine strips into threes.

Leave a little fabric unbraided at the end and tie another knot.

Now you’re ready to play tug-o’-war with your dog! Since this toy is made from old shirts, it is best suited for small or medium sized dogs (big ones will likely rip it apart quickly). If you have a ton of old shirts, you can make a pile of these to give to friends with dogs or to a local shelter (if they take toy donations).

Keep in mind that you need to pick toys best suited to your dog. If they tend to eat things they shouldn’t, this may not be a suitable toy for them. You don’t want them to end up eating any loose fabric and wind up taking them to the vet for a costly removal. Be extra careful and make sure to keep an eye on them so this doesn’t happen.
