DIY Denim Dog Toy

Does your dog’s toy basket need an update? Here’s the perfect tug toy for your pooch to chew and play fetch with for hours - all you need is a pair of old denim jeans.


  • An old pair of jeans
  • Scissors


  • Cut off one leg from an old pair of jeans.
  • Cut the leg into two strips.
  • Place the strips on top of each other to form a cross.
  • Fold the vertical strip around the horizontal strip.
  • Pass the horizontal strip over then under the vertical strip.
  • Pull the strips tight to secure a knot.
  • Repeat until the denim ball is your preferred size.
  • Ready to play!
