Treat Jar for Our Doggie

Hi, my friends!

You know I’m kind of obsessed with recycling, and one of my favorite things are jars and pots. You may have seen my pantry storage jar already, but I’m always looking for other ways to give them a new life.

But before going any further with the jars I want to introduce you our dog, Pinxo. He was rescued about 9 years ago from a dog shelter and he’s the best dog on the Earth! Here he’s ready to go to the beach 😉

He’s part of the family, so we like to do things for him as well. Here he is proudly next to his crate, where we keep his blankets, toys and all his stuff.

And one day I had that lightbulb moment… I was going to make a treat jar! So I took an empty glass jar (similar to this one, sorry I don’t have the before picture) and removed the label

Then I painted it with the homemade chalk paint with is great to use on glass. It needed two coats to cover it properly, and let it dry. Then I search for a graphic with some vintage dogs and I found this from Retro Vectors with some lovely ones. I added the text “Biscuits Pour Chiens” to identify what was inside if it wasn’t clear enough with the dog image!

Now it was time to transfer my custom image, you can see the whole process here, I promise it’s really easy! Here’s a close up

I used some clear wax to protect it, and it was done. Pinxo now owns a cute treat jar for his own, he deserves it.

      Yes, he’s too cute. He loves kids and he plays until he’s exhausted. Also he’s had infinite patience with the girls, so he deserves this and much more!

    It looks so nice! Those little companions mean a lot to us, don’t they? Awesome project, Pili!

    Pili, this is so cute! And so is Pinxo. We lost our baby last year. She was 8 years old, but our baby. Just like one of the kids. It was devastating to our whole family. Hold on to Pinxo, he looks like a great dog, and deserves to be spoiled.

    P.S. I’m going to start saving jars! I love what you do!!!

    • Pili says:

      Oh, Nikki, sorry to hear that. I can’t imagine a day without Pinxo so I hope he stays with us longer. And we love to spoil him! If you need jars let me know, I have some boxes full 😉

    There is nothing wrong with being obsessed with recycling!! (So says the upcycling blogger). 😉 Pinxo is adorbs and I’m sure he loves his new treat jar. Thank you so, so much for partying with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday- can’t wait to see what you’ve got next this weekend!

    • Pili says:

      Haha Sadie, good to know I’m not alone with my obsession! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

    • Pili says:

      Hi, Betsy! He’s adorable, he’s so good with the girls… even when he’s tired of being annoyed.
      Thanks for stopping by!

    • Pili says:

      There’s no mystery here as you can see, just paint and a cute image. Sure your pups would love it!

    What a cute little dog, and I love his new treat jar. i’d like to try making this for my own doggies x

  7. Life Loving says:

    Oh Pili. He’s so adorable and such a cutie, sitting there in his shades waiting to go to the beach. I love what you’ve done the jar. You should seriously set up a shop and sell these. I think every dog owner would want to treat their pet for Christmas.

    • Pili says:

      Sally, I can tell he’s the best dog ever. You should see him with a pink princess crown!
      I’ve thought about selling them, but I love to do so many different things that I can’t take the time to make some.
      Thanks for visiting!

  8. Ann Marie says:

    What a cute idea, as well as your cutie dog. I like how you took something headed for the curb and recycled it. Not only that, but you turned it into a fun, attractive container. Great job. I saw your link at Becca’s DIY Vintage Chic’s link party.

    • Pili says:

      Hi, Ann Marie! Thank you so much for stopping by and your kind comments, it’s an honor. I love the things you do!

  9. Mimi says:

    Pili, adorable little project! I did something similar recently with linen tubs for doggie linen. It’s so much more posh in French isn’t it….lol! Thanks for sharing at Five Star Frou-Frou. Love, Mimi xxx

  10. Aspen Jay says:

    You are so clever Pili! This is no doubt the cutest dog treat holder ever! Love the posh look you give everything. Thanks for partying with us at Talented Tuesday. And Pinxo is so cute! Hope you are having a great week Pili!


    • Pili says:

      Hahaha AJ, you make me laugh! When the budget is short imagination must be abundant!
      Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Pili says:

      Then you have to see him with a pink princess crown!! Thanks for your comments, Hayley, and happy Thanksgiving!

  11. Catherine Holt says:

    What a cutie and I love his glasses!

    Great idea and I bet he loves seeing it when that jar comes out 🙂

    A fondue restaurant sounds amazing, but fondue at home is even better! I am always a huge fan of anything chocolate!

    Thanks for linking up to Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.
