Showcase your pup's best photo in a frame made from dog treats.
I made a frame for a photo with instructions I found at http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/crafts-by-type/animal-bug-crafts/animal-themed-crafts/cat-dog-crafts/puppy-portrait-frame-665734/ on the Web. I modified the directions for our use.
Display the finished frame out of reach so your pup's not tempted to nibble on it.
Supplies you will need:
• Flat wooden frame from craft store
• Multi-colored dog bone-shaped treats
• Water-based polyurethane
• Small paint brush
• White tacky glue
If the flat wooden frame you purchased has a glass, remove it and the cardboard backing and set them aside.
Paint the frame with a coat of polyurethane and allow to dry.
Place the frame, face side up on a flat working surface and arrange the dog bones around the frame on the flat surface. Place them horizontally, end to end to fashion a border all the way around, or diagonally to accent the corners.
Once the pattern is determined, remove the dog bones, lay them face down, and apply a coat of water-based high-gloss polyurethane to the backs of the bones.
When the backs are dry, use tacky glue to attach the backs to the frame in the pattern you prefer.
Apply polyurethane to the tops and sides of the glued-on dog bones, let dry, and apply another coat of polyurethane.
When the final coat is completely dry, insert the dog's photo and reassemble the frame.
