Walk into my house and there are two things you'll definitely notice.

 One: my dogs are spoiled and two: I love Rae Dunn.

My dogs are quite the treat connoisseurs, and we've recently discovered some new dog treats that have become fast favorites. So clearly I need a new dog treat jar. The Rae Dunn dog treat canister I had my eye on was a little out of my budget so instead I decided to make my own. I love how it came out and my dogs love what we are putting inside!

Want to make your own Rae Dunn inspired dog treat canister? It's super simple to do. I have everything you need plus some awesome dog treats that will help you spoil your pups too.

Before we get to the Rae Dunn inspired dog treat canister instructions, I need to tell you about the treats you should fill it with. My dogs are both 10, so making sure that I am giving them treats that support their health and well-being is super important to me.

Both my dogs can't get enough of these Grain Free Crunch treats from Charlee Bear. And with less than 3 calories a treat, we don't mind saying yes when they ask for more!

These low calorie dog treats are grain free, with simple whole ingredients. My dogs love the crunch and flavor and I love that they are Pocket Perfect®, which means that you can stick them in your pocket without crumbling or leaving smells and stains. With two kids who love to give the dogs "cookies" and are constantly putting things in their pockets for me to find when I do laundry this is a lifesaver.

My dogs also love Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites. These treats are pretty amazing - they are the first raw, freeze dried meat treats blended with real fruit and veggies you can see! These made in the USA dog treats are simple, natural treats you can feel good about giving to your pet.

With my dogs' age comes a lot of new issues, especially joint discomfort. That's why I was really excited to discover Treatibles Soft Chews. Treatibles Soft Chews feature organic, full spectrum hemp oil to support my senior pets. They can help instill calm and emotional balance, as well as supporting their immune systems and keeping their joints healthy and flexible.

Treatibles Soft Chews are also available for cats, which makes our 13 year old cat Biggie very happy. He's newly diagnosed with arthritis and I'm looking forward to seeing how these soft chews can support his long term care.

And of course, Treatibles products are non-psychoactive, non-toxic, and virtually free of THC.

Griffey loved testing out the Pumpkin flavored Hard Chews too, and asked for us to please stock his new treat jar with more of these.

Now that you're fully stocked with healthy treats your pet will love, it's time to make a super cute treat canister to keep them in!

DIY Rae Dunn Inspired Dog Treat Canister

This is a simple DIY project that any dog mom would love to have. It makes a great gift idea too! Here's what you need to make your own.

  • Smooth sided glass jar. I used a pint sized Mason jar, but any smooth jar will work.
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Cream colored acrylic paint. I mixed two colors for mine: Vanilla Ice Cream and Misty White.
  • Foam paint brush
  • Cricut machine
  • Black vinyl

Start by thoroughly washing your jar, then cleaning the outside with rubbing alcohol. This helps the paint to adhere.

Then paint both the outside of the jar and the lid with your cream colored paint. You will likely need to do 2-3 coats for opaque coverage. Allow the paint to dry completely.

Next, you'll need to create your word(s) for the outside of your jar. Mine says "WOOF" but you can certainly customize yours with anything you'd like.

Start by downloading a Rae Dunn inspired font. I used Merry Light, but Skinny is another good choice for personal use.

Open Cricut Design Space and type in the word you'd like on your jar using your new font. Size it to about 3" wide for a pint sized jar (you may need to adjust if your jar is larger or smaller). Then cut onto black vinyl with your Cricut.

Then you'll need to carefully peel off each letter and place it onto your jar. A word of advice: don't use transfer tape. It will take the paint off of your jar if you do. Simply place each letter carefully onto the surface of the jar.

That's it! Your new Rae Dunn inspired dog treat canister is ready to be filled.

We put ours by the back door so we can give our dogs an extra treat when they come inside...  after they wipe their paws of course.

Don't forget to check out Charlee Bear and Treatibles for treats to keep your new canister filled and your pets happy.
