DIY Dog Treat Container {Upcycle Project!}

7 Materials
1 Hour

I created a super cute DIY Dog Treat Container with an old candle jar that I emptied and cleaned out, in a post done in partnership with Milo's Kitchen home-style dog treats and Meijer! I melted the leftover wax in the microwave and scooped it out, and then removed the label and washed the candle jar in the dishwasher.

While I waited for my candle jar to finish in the dishwasher, I stained a wooden pedestal, wooden circle, and wooden knob that I purchased at the craft store.

Next, I cut an adorable dog bone shape using my electronic cutting machine. If you don't have a cutting machine, no problem! You can find adorable pet-themed stickers at the craft store. Just purchase a pack and use those instead!

The next step was to glue the glass jar to the wooden pedestal. I made sure to use glue that bonds wood and glass. Read the label of the glue you plan to use to make sure yours does, too! Many do not!

I decided to spray paint the lid of my candle jar to give it a more custom look. Once that dried, I glued the stained wooden circle and stained knob to the top. This was purely decorative - I just wanted a pretty look for this DIY Dog Treat Container!

Once the glue dried, my DIY Dog Container was finished! I filled it with treats and love how it looks on my counter! (Of course my dog loves it, too!)

Can you believe this used to be a candle jar? It looks so much cuter as a dog treat container now!
