Dog Bone Picture Frame

Kelli Mahoney

This is a fun photo frame to display your dog's picture, but keep it out of reach of any canine companion. My dogs have a liking for this frame, and I have caught them on occasion coveting the bones on the front. Still, it is a lot of fun to give as gifts to your fellow dog lovers, plus you can give your dog a treat while you are making it!



  • wooden photo frame
  • small dog-bone shaped treats
  • wooden dog (pre-painted)
  • sanding pad
  • acrylic paint: brown
  • paintbrush
  • hot glue gun
  • hot glue


  1. Sand the wooden frame until it is smooth. Using a slightly damp rag, wipe off any dust.
  2. Paint the picture frame with the brown paint.
  3. Let the frame dry for 24 hours.
  4. Glue the dog to the bottom, right corner of the frame. Make sure the base of the dog is even with the bottom of the frame.
  5. Determine the placement of your dog treats on the frame, and then hot glue each one on individually.
  6. Place a photo in the frame, and then place out of reach of any dogs!

why couldn't you use cat food treats or pieces of hard cat food? and i wonder if one could spray a clear coating or something over the bones/food to seal it??
