Step 3: Remove the St Christopher medallion from the chain and attach it to one end of the twine. Tie a knot so that it's attached, face up, at the front of the bundle.

Protect Your Pup Collar

Give it to: your dog! or that person who brings their dog up in most conversations (we love/are those people)

Supplies:

-scissors (maybe)

-1 St Christopher necklace (we used medium white/teal)

Step 1: Take a look at the collar. Can you attach the medallion directly to it? Most collars have a silver jump ring- the thing that the name tag is hanging from. If that's the case, just remove the medallion from the chain and slip it on!

Step 2: If it doesn't have the jump ring (like ours) then you might still be able to slip it on somehow, or you can cut the chain to a keychain length with just regular scissors. Slip the medallion onto the cut chain and then attach it to the collar.
