Continuing to feel crafty, I decided to make something for the dogs (since they are obviously what my world revolves around). Their gift? A treat and leash holder!
These were my supplies:
I used scrap wood left over from building the table, which we stained with leftover stain from when we built the table. We also have a ton of mason jars around the house, despite the fact that I’ve never canned anything in my life. (I do enjoy drinking out of them, so that probably explains it).
The only thing I had to purchase was a hose clamp, and a towel hook, both purchased from Home Depot for under $5.
Assembly was super quick, it took less than 20 minutes to do the whole thing!
First, I pre-drilled a hole in my wood (as not to split it), and I pre-drilled a hole in the hose clamp. The hose clamp was a bit tough, and I had to consult with one of my friends who just happens to be the Accessories Product Manager at Ryobi (yeah, I have cool friends. I think jealousy is a reasonable response). He recommended I use a titanium drill bit to get through the metal. (Thanks Nick!)
Next up was placing the towel hook. I positioned mine at the bottom, so I could hang other things as well. It also makes it easy to swivel the mason jar to dump treats that may be hanging near the bottom.
Once complete, it was time to fill with treats and hang it up!
