14 Ways to Make Dog Collar without Sewing & Webbing

When I was given this keyword to write a detailed article on, I was told to include at least 5 ways.

And tbh, I wasn’t expecting I’d find many enough to make it.

Because either people don’t even think of other ways around other than just sewing a collar when making one themselves

Or just simply buy one.

But despite being sceptical of it, I scoured the internet, poured hours into research, and finally succeeded in delivering a blog cutting you right to a list of ways of making a dog collar without sewing and webbing.

And I can tell you this.

This article is as encompassing as I was initially sceptical of it.

So read on to discover:

There are 14 ways included, so browse between those and make the one that seems to best suit your dog.

Most of the required material would be lying around you in your home and some might have to be bought from the market.

Dominant Dog Collar (Standard Dog Collar)

Dominant Dog Collar (Standard Dog Collar)

I couldn’t find many collar-making methods that involve no sewing and webbing for big dogs, and this one alone has offset that.

Supplies required

  • Rope, O-rings, clasp, Duct tape
  • Scissor

If you have got a dog belonging to strong dog breeds such as German shepherds, Siberian huskies, Labradors, and Dobermans, this is one of the best things you can make for him.


Cut a long piece of rope that you can fold into halves and attach clasps and still, it should fit snugly when put on.

Here is a detailed video guide:

Velvet Dollar Tree Dog Collar

Velvet Dollar Tree Dog Collar

If you ask me, this collar seems to best suit all small-sized cute dogs or brachycephalic dog breeds, or some calm dogs, but you can still give it a shot for your big guy.

Supplies required

  • Dog collar (can use your dog collar or buy from the link)
  • Velvet ribbon
  • Iron-on letters
  • Iron, Hot glue


You have to measure the size of your dog’s neck and cut the velvet ribbon that long and stick letters on it, and in the end, stick the ribbon on the collar. Sticking will be done using hot glue.

Upcycled Dog Collar

Upcycled Dog Collar

The world is on a cycle of upcycling. These girls have left me astounded with their creativity.

Irrespective of your dog size, these two sisters are doing recycling with personal benefits: collars and leashes. So ready for upcycling? Let’s turn “used” into “unused”.

Supplies required

  • Old belt, Scissor, Crimper
  • Purse strap for leash

The better belt, the better collar.


You should know your dog’s neck size and cut the old belt that long. Shape the strap’s end like a triangle.

Here, you must have holes in the belt so you could sew a D ring onto it, which can be done with some thread and a needle.

Here is a detailed video guide, including the making of two collars:

Apart from collars, they taught leash-making without sewing too.

  • Buckle, D ring

I don’t have anything to say except to ask you to take your dog’s neck size into account, and the rest is a lot.
