Let’s get started: Dog rope toy DIY
For this project you will need a pair of scissors and one stock, preferably a colorful one.
You will cut off about an inch off the top and bottom of the sock and then you’ll cut the stock straight down the middle.
Next you’ll cut your stock into 3 strips, you will tie a know at the top of the 3 strips, make sure you tie it tight!
You will then find something heavy to sit on top of your knot, while you french braid the 3 strips.
After your 3 strips are braided together you will tie a tight knot at the end.
Lastly you’ll cut slits in the loose fabric at the end of each knot.
And that’s it you have made a new rope toy for your dog, your friend is ready to play!
