Dollar Store DIY Tennis Ball Dog Ornament
Tennis ball (find dog print ones like the one you see here for 2/$1 at Dollar Tree)
Heavy rope or laundry line (Dollar Tree)
Ribbon of your choice
We found everything we used here at our local Dollar Tree store. Just look in the pet supplies and crafting aisle.
1. Begin by poking a hole in the top of your tennis ball. You can use a sharp knife or even a screwdriver for this step. Just press until the object pokes through.
2. Create a loop with your length of rope or laundry line. Make a knot with it. Press the knotted end into the ball until it is securely in place. This will act as the hanger on your ornament.
3. Take a length of ribbon and tie it into a bow around the rope or laundry line.
Your tennis ball dog ornament is now complete. Hang it from your tree or give it as a gift. It is a frugal and fun way to bring the joys of owning a dog into your holiday season!
