Tired of buying dog toys at the store only to have them break or be ripped to shreds? There’s no time like the present to make your own DIY pup toys at home! This No-Sew T-shirt Rope Dog Toy is perfect for making a fast dog toy that your dog is going to LOVE. We all have old shirts just lying around the house waiting to be used, right?

Take a peek at my 10 Tips to Choose the Perfect Dog as a First-Time Owner for some tips and tricks that I’ve learned from being a dog owner almost all my life.

No-Sew T-Shirt Rope Dog Toy

What I love about this simple dog toy craft is that you really just need 3 supplies to make it happen. This means that once your pup tears up all their other toys, you can come to the rescue and create a brand new dog toy in just a few short minutes.

We all have old shirts just sitting in a drawer not getting used, right? Or maybe we have a few that are just so stained up, we really have no need for them anymore. Those are the perfect shirts for this no-sew dog toy activity!

Grab those old shirts and get ready to make your pup’s day!

Supplies Needed To Make a DIY Shirt Dog Toy

  • 1 Old T-shirt (XL or larger works best)
  •  Scissors
  •  String

How to Make a No-Sew T-Shirt Rope Dog Toy

Step 1: Cut the t-shirt into about 1/2 or 1/4 wide strips.

Step 2: Cut the strips at one end so that they are a long piece and not a loop.

Step 3: Tie string around 3 pieces at one end. Then braid those 3 pieces together. To braid, simply cross the outer pieces over the middle and alternate from the left to the right side. Then do another 3 and another 3. You should have 3 finished braids when done.

Step 4: Now tie a string around one end of all 3 braids so they are all tied together.

Step 5: Braid all 3 braids together to make one large braid.

Step 6: When you get to the end tie the two ends together. Then carefully cut the strings off.

Step 7: Trim off ends to they are even.

See how fast and simple this is? Not only will your family dog love you for making this but this is actually a really great craft that the kids can make as well!

One other really great idea for this shirt dog toy is to make these for the local animal shelter also. This could be a great service project for the kids to do to bring a little joy to the animals while they’re waiting for their “fur”ever home.
