How to make a pretend play dog collar for a child. This was quick and easy to sew as a Christmas gift for my son who is obsessed with our dog’s collar.
My 4 year old son is obsessed with our dog’s collar. He keeps removing it and trying to put it on himself. I made the mistake of saying, “That’s Rocky’s collar to wear in case he gets lost. He needs to wear it so we can find him.” Now… I realized my mistake immediately. But it was already said.
First problem: Did I actually just imply my child doesn’t need a collar in case HE gets lost?! Lol, whoops.
Second problem: He dug through the dog stuff and found a spare collar. I told him the collar wasn’t safe for him to wear, but I decided to make him a safe collar for Christmas. I figured it’d be fun and I know he will appreciate it. I used a magnet instead of velcro or snaps so that it will come off easily. I didn’t want him getting hurt so this seemed like a great way to make it.
Note: This will come off super easily so don’t make this for an actual dog.

Now I just added a snap to attach my tag.
I took a piece of chalkboard fabric and serged around it for the tag. I added a snap to that so it could snap onto the collar. Finished!
