Making a Dog Crinkle Toy from a Water Bottle, Golf Head Cover

Looking for a cheap dog toy using recycled materials? In just a few minutes, you can make your dog a crinkle chew toy from an empty water bottle and a golf club head cover. (No golf club covers in the house? We snagged some for $1 each at the local thrift store. Ours are made out of a heavy plush material that’s perfect for chewing.)

To make your dog’s crinkle toy, throw away the cap from the empty water bottle. Insert the water bottle into the golf head cover then sew up the top. That’s it! (Don’t worry about sewing perfectly; we whip-stitched the opening by hand. If you’d like to get fancy, you can sew in Velcro so you can change out the water bottle when it gets overchewed.)

Some other options besides golf head covers are heavy Christmas stockings, wine bottle fabric gift bags, and thick knee socks!
