Dalmatian Spotted Dog Treats (Just for Fun!)

Homemade baked Dalmatian shaped dog treats with black spots

It was only a matter of time... Ever since buying my "Dalmatian" (Retriever) shaped cookie cutter, Dalmatian spotted dough has been on my mind. I've made chocolate labs with carob dough, golden labs with peanut butter dough (a favourite), speckled dogs with bacon (mmm....bacon...), and more. Instead of marbling a treat dough, I decided to play with black chia seeds on a pale treat dough base as a very simple way to create small Dalmatian dotted treats.

DIY Reversible Dog Collar Bow Tie (Standard or Oversize)

Doesn't Humprey look doggone dapper in his oversized polka dot bow tie?  And handsome old Professor Oli? These over-the-collar bow ties are deceptively simple to sew and can be whipped up in minutes with simple materials.  Here's how to make your own!

Spotted: DIY Polka Dot Halloween Decorations

We love a good polka dot and Halloween is no exception. Even if you have no dogs to DIY for and aren't ready to make a Dalmatian costume for the occasion, you can still let your inner spots out! Here are some spotted Halloween DIY decoration ideas, both classic spots in (of course) our favourite shades of black and white, along with with a few spook-tacularly fun spotty googly eyes ideas for goulish goodness!

Spotted: Dalmatian Style Halloween DIY Costumes

Show us your spots this Halloween!  Here are some fun DIYs for dressing up as a Dalmatian. The signature spots are easy to DIY onto white clothing, or you can sew your own with print or polka dot fabric.  Dalmatian costumes are fun on their own, but are also a great opportunity for combination costume dressing, such as a fireman and firedog, Cruella with puppies, or Roger and Anita with Pongo, Perdita and/or more of the 101 Dalmatians.  If you have Dalmatians, they can easily join in the spotty fun, but any dog can be a Dalmatian for Halloween with a polka dot bandana, jumper, or coat. Human or canine, there should be plenty of treats involved!

Spotted: DIY Dalmatian Spotted Home Office Decor

I love the Dalmatian dot home decor trend, but being a Dalmatian owner, there is a fine line between a designer look and looking like a complete crazy-dog-lady when it comes to a "spot" of style around the house (and wardrobe). I think that I could get away with incorporating a few of these fab polka dot DIY ideas during my home office / studio makeover. :)

Spotted: DIY Black and White Polka Dot Nail Polish

Ok...this may be just a little bit much for my everyday style, but polka dots are probably one of the few forms of nail art that I could actually manage to DIY without becoming the poster girl for Pinterest-fails. Perhaps just a little accent nail or some secret pedicure polish... Come on, you know you want to!
