Reuse Old T-Shirt To Make Rope Dog Toy DIY

Are you tired of seeing your beloved pooch chew on the same old toys? Why not give them something new and exciting to sink their teeth into? With just a few simple steps, you can transform your old t-shirt into a fantastic rope dog toy that will keep your furry friend entertained for hours on end! You now have a brand new rope dog toy that is not only eco-friendly but also a great way to repurpose your old t-shirts.

Supplies Needed:

  • 1 Extra Large Or Larger Old T-shirt (could also use old jeans)
  • String or Clip
  • Pair Of Scissors

How To Make This Dog Toy DIY:

Start by cutting the t-shirt into fabric strips. You want them to be about 1/2 or 1/4 wide strips.

Next, cut the strips at one end. So that they are long strips and not a loop.

Now tie a small piece of string around 3 pieces of the t-shirt strips at one end.

Then the next steps is to braid those 3 pieces together. If you are not sure how to braid, you simply cross one outer piece over the middle and alternate from the left to the right side.

Then do another 3 and another 3. so that you have 3 finished braids when done.

Now you want to tie a small piece of string around one end of all 3 braids. You want them to be all tied together.

Next, take those tied-together braids and braid them together to make one large braid.

When you get to the end, curl it back around so that you can tie the two ends together in one large knot.

Carefully cut off the strings. Just make sure you do not cut the braids.

This last step to this easy DIY dog toy is optional. If you want the ends to look even and not different lengths, trim off the ends.

I am sure this will soon become one of your dog’s favorite toys to play tug of war with!
