Lestat told me that he wants to be a flower for Halloween this year. So I made him a simple flower collar using some ribbon, crepe paper, and my trusted hot glue gun.

You will need:

different kinds of crepe paper ribbons, mine were 2" wide
thin metal wire
green craft paper
hot glue gun
  1. Start by measuring the ribbon around your dogs neck and cut to size.
  2. Make flowers by rolling about 30" of crepe ribbon together, secure with wire on 1 end, and pull the "roll" apart to create a flower. I used 19 flowers.
  3. Cut leaf shapes of the green craft paper.
  4. Hot glue the flowers and leaves in place.
