DIY: Matching Square Knot Bracelet and Collar
Last week I talked about how our rescue pup just magically dropped from the sky and became the perfect addition to our family. He's one of us. When I shop for Christmas, Santa always leaves him treats in his stocking. When it's Halloween, we include him in the dress up! Last year he was a rufferee to wrestler, John Cena. The year before he was a camel to an Egyptian.

This summer we even took him with us on a family road trip. A first for us!

We were headed to Padre Island and favorite hotel is pet friendly, so why not? It was his first time on a long car ride and his first time at the beach, in the sand.

 It was just for a couple of days and everyone agreed to share responsibility! It's hard to resist this guy. Clearly he enjoyed himself!

It was a sweet memory for us and heartfelt to see how close my kids have grown to him. They talk to him lovingly, cuddle with him and say little words in Spanish, it melts my heart! So much so that I thought it would be cute to make matching square knot bracelets and a collar, so they could BBF forever or PV, por vida, as we used to say! LOL!

So here's how it goes to make a square knotted collar. You will need twine or waxed cotton cords (a couple different colors), a collar, tape and scissors on hand.

Step 1: Make sure the extend the collar to fit your dog's neck correctly.

Step 2: Cut about 80" of twine for a small collar.

Step 3: For your starting point, thread the jute where the loop for the dog tag is.

Step 4: Begin your square knots, alternating sides. At the end, cut and seal with clear nail polish.

For the matching bracelet, use the same materials. Start with a 60" twine of the color you want shown (blue in picture). Cut a second color about 18" for the middle (green in picture). You will also need a third string about 10" (mint in picture). Follow along below!
