You Will Need
- Measuring tape
- ID tag
Choose a belt that is environmentally friendly, such as organic cotton or hemp.
Measure your pet’s neck, add 2 inches, and mark the length on the belt with the marker.
Make a hole
Use the awl and hammer to make a hole at your mark.
Trim and round the collar
Trim the belt 3 inches past the hole with the shears. Round the corners and trim loose threads with the shears.
Test the fit and attach tags
Slip a couple of fingers between the collar and your pet's neck to test for fit. Make sure the collar is secure but not too tight. Then attach the pet’s ID tag and go for a walk to show off their new collar.
