  • Brown or Tan Dog Shirt
  • Pink & White Felt
  • Assorted Coloured Pom Poms
  • Hot Glue or Fabric Glue
  • Scissors


1.  Cut the white and pink felt down to size. Be sure to cut a wave around the edges to mimic the look of frosting.

2.  Hot glue the white felt to the back of the brown tee, then hot glue the pink on top of the white (make sure the pink is slightly smaller than the white).
3.  Next arrange coloured pom poms across the frosting. Hot glue in place. Make sure the pom-poms are securely glued so they don’t drop off.

4.  Allow a few hours for the glue to dry before wearing. And that’s it!
