  3. When firmly folded – place another line of hot glue and fold the piece in half and repeat once more for a third time.

  1. Now that you have your flowers completed, combine them into the arrangements you want and secure with hot glue. Add a few small leafs cut from felt to finalize.
  2. For the strap: measure how much felt will be needed to encircle your dog’s collar. Make sure add additional length to allow for overlap. Cut a strip of felt this length and at about 1 to 2 inches wide.
  3. Secure the arrangement to the center of the felt strap using hot glue.
  4. Place the velcro square on opposite ends. (One will be on the front side at the top and the other will be at the backside on the bottom).
  5. Wrap about your dog’s favorite collar and admire! 🙂
