The holiday season is fast approaching which is why I want to share my easy DIY holiday treat jars with you! As one of Santa’s favorite furry elves, I’m happy to help out with craft projects to be used at home or given to others as gifts.

How to make holiday treat jars
The first thing you have to do is send your human off to the store to purchase the supplies you will need to make your holiday treat jars. I would go myself, but dogs are not allowed in our craft store.
I’m a huge fan of Natural Balance® healthy treats and think they are perfect for filling the treat jars! I will be making a jar for dogs and a jar for cats. The Natural Balance treats I’m using are:
- Belly Bites – semi moist dog treats for puppies to adults
- Burger Bites – lamb flavor for puppies to adults
- Mini Rewards – Duck Formula which are only five calories a piece
- Dental Chews – fresh and clean formula for adult dogs 15-25 lbs
- Limited Ingredient – sweet potato and fish treats
- Perfect Bites – chicken formula cat treats with only one calorie per treat
- Limited Ingredient – salmon and potato treats cat treats
Probably the hardest part of this project is waiting to eat the treats! I’ve got my tongue out just thinking about them! Natural Balance treats are made with premium quality protein, they are full of flavor, and have no artificial ingredients! The treats are also backed by the Natural Balance Buy with Confidence guarantee.
I had Mom purchase decorations with adhesive backs so I could simple stick them on the jars with my paws – no mess, no fuss, done! I had a bit of help tying the ribbons around the top as it is hard to tie things with paws.
The finished holiday treat jars
Holiday treat jar for dogs
We celebrate Christmas at my house, which is why I have chosen the Christmas theme for my holiday treat jars. The larger jar is for the dog treats. I think it came out pretty nice. It only took me about five minutes to make it.
Holiday treat jar for cats
Cat bro Bert couldn’t figure out the system, so I helped out and put together the smaller jar for cat treats. It is really cute too, I think. What cat wouldn’t want to get a jar like this full of tasty Natural Balance treats?
Did you wonder why #1 on my list of things to buy says “jars with lids that close securely”? Have a look at the “naughty elf”, cat bro Bert! He has been known to chew through plastic, remove lids that are pull off and on, which is why we got a real secure jar for the treats since they will be on display where he can access the jars! Bert wanted me to tell you cats out there, these are the best pet treats ever!
Share some holiday cheer

What do you think? They came out pretty cute, didn’t they? If I can put these together, so can you! Why not head out to your local craft store to pick up some supplies, and then stop at your favorite pet store to get some Natural Balance treats to fill the jars with. Any dog or cat would be thrilled to receive a jar like these this holiday season!
