With Halloween just a few weeks away, many pet owners are starting to consider what costume will work best for their furry friends. Dressing up for Halloween is always fun and having a costume for your pet makes it that much more exciting! There are many costumes on the market today for pets but these can be expensive. Why not create a DIY costume for your pet that costs less and still looks great? Below are a few ideas to get you started.

Turn your pet into a beanie baby! Cut out cardboard in the shape of a heart, punch a hole into the corner, and paint with the TY logo! Voila! Attach to collar and you have yourself the cutest beanie baby ever made!

Be professional

Another great idea is to have your pet look like they just stepped away from their office as a big time executive. Use an old dress shirt and cut out the collar. The collar should be able to fit around your dog’s neck just like it does for a human. Add in a tie and you have a proper business man or woman! You can also cut off the cuffs of the dress shirt and stitch them tighter to create little cuffs for your important canine corporate executive.

Bees, Butterflies and Ladybugs

Dressing up your pet like a bee, butterfly or ladybug is quite simple when it comes to DIY. All you need are a few materials. Create a simple tutu with stretch elastic and tulle, attaching handmade wings from foam board or felt. Add in a head band with feelers and your pet is now a cute little bug! This costume has many variations and can be changed by simply changing the color of the tutu and shape of the wings. Make sure to keep an eye on your pup while wearing this, as injesting any fabrics/foam boards could be troublesome.

Star Wars Ewok

One of the most popular creatures from the Star Wars franchise is an Ewok. This furry creature resembles several dog breeds and can be an option for a DIY costume. Take a piece of fabric, felted works best, and create a cape of sorts that will fit around your pets face. The felt will need to have an opening for the head and fit over the ears. You can tie the cloth together with string for effect.

It is important to remember that not all dogs will take to the costumes you choose. Respect your pet when you try the costume and stop if they seem to be distressed or uncomfortable. You do not want to stress out your dog just to look cute on Halloween. Try a variety of costume options to see what your dog is comfortable with. You may find they love a full costume and are excited to wear what you come up with!
