Life Is Better with a Dog Leash Hanger

Make an adorable Life Is Better with a Dog Leash Hanger and pet photo display.  Two easy project ideas for anyone who loves their dog(s)!

Since most businesses and parks are closed, there really isn’t any place to go.  So when the boredom gets unbearable, I take Chica for a walk.

She’s always happy when I’m bored

Since I already had a wood plaque, I decided to make a cute sign that doubles as a leash hanger.

Life Is Better with a Dog Supplies

Here’s how I made it.


Paint or stain the wood.


Choose your design and cut apart.

There are two Life Is Better designs, a dog and cat.  But for this project, I chose the dog design since cats aren’t walked on leashes.

Use a squeegee to apply chalk paste in whatever color you want for just the words, “Life is better.”

Once that part is dry, add the bones and words directly under it and then let dry again.


Now, add “dog” under that.  You could also add the dog shape, but I didn’t.  You’ll see why in the next step.


Next, add the paw prints under the word “dog.”


The final step is adding a hook between the paw prints and a hanger on the back.
