Use some scrap fabric and sew a tube twice as long as your dogs collar and wide enough to pull the collar thru. Gather as you go, then buckle around the dog's neck scrunched up like a scrunchie. Holiday festive!
My smallest dog sports a ponytail scrunchie from the dollar store in seasonal decor.

My 5 month puppy has to wear a plastic cone, e-collar, due to a procedure done. Does anyone have suggestion how to make a more comfortable one?

Years ago I decided there had to be a cheaper, more humane version of the Elizabethan collar, so I made one from a plastic milk jug. I had to play with it a bit cutting here and there. I put little cuts along the collar line and laced my dog's collar thru it to keep it in place.
I used the plastic one from the vet as a pattern and made one out of a very heavy interfacing type of material from the fabric store. It is kind of rigid but flexible at the same time. I ironed on fabric on both sides before cutting it out; sewed around all the edges with the zig zag stitch; and then used strips of Velcro on the ends. I used this on both cats and dogs and they seemed to tolerate it much easier than the plastic ones.
I used a plastic container from deli section. Cut bottom off, covered cut edge with duct tape, punched holes through duct taped edge and threaded long shoe lace through.
I am searching for a knitting pattern of a dog collar called "Jingle Bell" collar. I downloaded it from somewhere about 5 years ago, but I lost the the pattern.

I had to go to the WayBack machine to find this pattern, that is why there is no picture. http://web.arch .com/page19.html
I am making a fake mink collar for my friend's dog, but I can't up with anything catchy for the tag. Any ideas would be great! Thanks.
