Boo! Halloween’s just around the corner and it’s the perfect chance to make your adorable pup even more cute with a silly costume. But store-bought dog costumes just aren’t as fun and creative as making your own. So it’s time to dust off the art materials hidden in your attic and DIY up a storm! Here are 5 clever homemade costumes for your pup.
Simply adhere medical gauze to some appropriately sized white pajamas for this classic costume. Be sure to cut the pajamas appropriately for your dog’s comfort. If you want to be extra, soak the gauze in brown tea water yo create some spooky bloodstains. Remember to rinse and dry the gauze thoroughly for your little one’s comfort!

Things you need:
Foil turkey pan
Dark green paint
Purple ribbon (dog-safe, of course)
Velcro adhesive (optional)
First, design the turtle shell by painting your foil turkey pan with a coat of dark green paint and draw on the shell pattern with your brown marker. Next, use the X-Acto to cut two strips into the sides of the shell, and slip the purple ribbon in. You could also add Velcro adhesive onto the ribbons to make sure the shell doesn’t slip off your doggy.
Tie your ribbon around your pup’s waist. As a finishing touch, tie a matching bandana around your dog’s neck to give him a badass look.
You’re having a horror movie marathon, and you don’t want your pup to feel left out. What about turning your dog into everyone’s favorite snack? This homemade S’more outfit will delight both your dog and guests.
Things you need:
White dog vest
To create the graham crackers, cut two squares out of cardboard - one square should be smaller than the other. The bottom graham cracker has to be small enough for your pup to move comfortably. Next, fashion the brown felt to mimic the chocolate drizzle. This should be around the same length as the white vest.
Hot glue is your best friend to assemble this costume. Hot glue the brown felt to the top of the white vest. After that, hot glue the cardboard on top of the brown felt, and to the bottom of the vest. Let your baby try it out and trim as you go.
If your dog is on the larger side, you could also glue the cardboard to a piece of elastic and slip it over the dog!
Instead of trying to be someone else, sometimes Halloween is about being something else. This creative costume idea is sure to earn loads of laughs from your friends and family.
Things you need:
Use lots of hot glue to attach the tulle fabric of your choice to a dog shirt, and finish off with a white rope. Even if your pup hates baths, they’ll surely love the attention they get with this crowd pleaser.
