DIY Custom Dog Treat Jar

By DalmatianDYI. | Dog Info Holidays

The holiday season is almost here! This cute custom DIY treat jar can be created in mere minutes using inexpensive materials with no special skills or tools required. It’s so easy!


DIY Custom Dog Treat Jar

Why not make one for your precious pets or create a whole batch as holiday gift jars for special animal-loving family and friends?

To create your own, you will need a lidded jar and alphabet stickers. Masking tape and/or scissors may also be handy, depending on your layout. Any clean glass jar with a well-fitting lid will work for this project, including budget-friendly bargain buys (like mine) or simple upcycled jars. If you have a cutting machine, custom stickers are a breeze to make, but off-the-shelf stickers can work beautifully to keep crafts like this accessible for anyone so that’s what we’ve used to create our customised treat jar for this DIY.

There are plenty of off-the-shelf fonts and colours available to choose from to customise your jar in your own unique personal style. Stickers made of more durable materials, such as vinyl, foil, or other waterproof/resistant materials will hold up better to use and careful cleaning. Unlike customising your jar with glass paints, there is no mess or drying time involved. This is a very quick craft that is suitable for any skill level, including children who are able to safely handle stickers.

DIY Custom Dog Treat Jar

Plan your layout. Since “Oliver and Humphrey” (our dogs) is a whole lot of text to fit onto my cute little jar, I went with a simple “TREATS” for the demo shown in this post, but this would be also cute with pet names, nicknames, or other designs. For added embellishments, I bought long stickers for a wrap-around accent as well as little circles to create paw prints, all in similar gold metallic finishes to coordinate with my letters.

Ensure that your jar is clean and dry, then apply your stickers to create your design. If you are applying letters in a straight line, a strip of masking tape can be helpful for alignment. If your jar isn’t round, applying from the middle letter outwards is an easy way to centre most text. If you are adding wrap-around embellishments, take care to ensure that any patterns line-up at the overlap points and try to position the overlap in an inconspicuous spot.

Done! It’s really that simple! Enjoy using your pretty new treat jar, gift it to a friend, or make a whole batch of custom jars for holiday presents. Perfect! To make an extra special present, consider filling it with tasty treats or other goodies. If you are using pre-baked homemade treats, remember that they lack the preservatives of commercial treats will have a much shorter shelf life. Fill the jar when you’re ready to gift or mix things up by gifting the dry ingredients to a favourite treat recipe. Fun!

The best evaluations of our products come from the people who’ve bought them.

bought two of these

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
