You'll need...
- paper maché stars
- small disco balls
- spray paint
- glitter
- wire


Here's how...
1. Spray the stars with gold spray paint and then sprinkle with glitter while still wet. Let dry 20 minutes.
2. Using a piece of thin wire, attach stars and disco balls to the tinsel.
3. Hang alternating strands of gold and silver tinsel to create a curtain backdrop. (You can hang from a curtain rod, over a door way, or taped to a wall!)

Ta-dah! You can make it as tall or wide as you want just make sure to fill the space so the garlands are close together. We decked ours out with our Oh Joy! for Lorena Canals HAPPY PARTY rug and sparkly decor around the bottom. You can even put a chair in front of it so people can sit for their photo, OR simply grab a few props and stand in front of it!

NEW Oh Joy! for Petco for spring...


Before we sign off for the holidays later this week...we have one final launch for 2018 for you! Our NEWEST Oh Joy! for Petco for the spring. A few of the best-selling items from our holiday collection are staying a bit longer, PLUS we've added a lot of fun new items just in time for a new season. From toys to outfits to accessories, we've got it all. Come check it out...



We've got more outfits for your pups to wear with warm hoodies and sweaters to stay bundled during the winter months that transition well into the spring! With fun phrases like, "I'M PAWESOME" and "PARTY ANIMAL" on the hoodies, classy color-blocked knit sweaters, and a pink party dress, we've got a festive outfit for every pup. We also have a brand new bowtie set, a pretty floral collar, and a fun new bandana, too!




Toys, toys, toys! We added a ton of colorful toys for your puppies to play with this season: a watermelon plush toy, a strawberry plush toy, a floral rope toy, and a rainbow rope toy. You'll also notice an updated bone toy that says "WOOF!"




Accessories galore! In our new collection, we added some new pieces for you that'll help you keep your pet and pet supplies organized. We added a clutch (that holds your poop baggies!) to bring with you on walks and store your own essentials, a tote to carry your little pal in, and a colorful box for all your pup's toys!

Special thanks to our amazing models: Maggie, Rossi, Lucy, Mosbey, Hero, and Dolly Parton.
