Our new home is still a work in progress, but we’re getting there, one shopping trip and DIY project at a time! Our walls are still bare, so I figured I’d start decorating the house one small space at a time. I decided to start with the mud room area since it’s a less overwhelming space compared to something like the living room.
We have a built in boot bench near the entry by the garage, which comes in handy for our shoes, bags, and coats, but we still needed a smaller space to hold our keys and the dog leashes. I’m notorious for always misplacing these items, so having a designated spot for them seemed perfect!
I remembered seeing some cute mason jar flower vase wall holders on Pinterest, so I decided I’d run with that idea and put together a dog treat and leash holder that I could hang on the wall by the boot bench! Believe me when I say I am NOT the crafty/DIY type AT ALL, but this was so easy and anyone could do it!!
I love how this dog treat and leash holder turned out in our mud room entry way and even more so, how functional it is. Did I mention that dogs love it too!? Now they get treats more often since the treats are always in sight!
This is the perfect DIY project for pet owners, and even if you don’t own a pet, you could always use the mason jar as a vase and the use the hooks for your keys! Check out the easy tutorial below!
Can you tell Brees was eagerly awaiting the completion of this so he could have one of his favorite holiday treats!? BLUE Santa Snacks® are a hit in our house!

Having the treats right next to the leash makes it so convenient to reward the pups for doing their business outside when they’re supposed to!
Brees is always a good boy, so he gets a treat every time he comes inside now and he knows exactly where to look for them!
