DIY Dog Treat Container Ideas

For over a decade I had a ceramic dog treat container that I loved, and every time I took the lid off the dogs would come running to the kitchen for a treat. They knew that sound so well! Much to my disappointment, it recently broke. On the bright side, I now have the chance to upcycle something into a dog treat container. I also thought this would be a good time to make a few extra upcylced dog treat canisters for friends that have dogs. I figure if I start now, I can have them all done by Christmas and fill them with homemade dog treats. By putting chalkboard paint in the top and on front, I can put a dog's name, a message, or the type of treat, or even the recipe for the homemade treat, all on the canister. You could glue ribbon to the canister lid for extra decoration as well.

Here are the supplies you will need for an upcycled DIY dog treat container:
  • Old tin canister (Christmas popcorn tins can always be found at the thrift store)
  • Spray paint (try to get the most eco-friendly kind you can find)
  • Chalkboard paint 
  • Decorative ribbon (optional)
  • Chalk
  1. Spray paint the outside of the tin and the lid. (It is best to not paint where the lid and canister meet because it can make it difficult to open and close).
  2. Let the tin dry for several hours before painting on the chalkboard paint. 
  3. If doing a bone or paw print, draw the shape on the tin with a permanent marker to make painting easier.
  4. You will need to put 2-3 thin layers of chalkboard paint on the tin and be sure to have at least 30-60 minutes between application of layers. 
  5. Let the chalkboard paint dry for 24-48 hours before writing on it.
  6. Decorative ribbon can be glued on to the edge of the lid if desired.
