DIY dog Halloween costume1. Dog S’mores

This adorable DIY dog Halloween costume is super easy to make. Find a white dog shirt or use a white child-size t-shirt that fits your dog well. Pick up some brown felt from a craft store and cut out some melty chocolate drips. Glue those to the back and sides of the white shirt. Then cut out a square piece of cardboard for your graham cracker. Use a black marker and draw a dotted line down the center of your cardboard for where you would break the cracker in two. Then add some dots to make it look amazing! Glue your cracker to the shirt and you’ve got yourself a dog S’mores!

DIY dog Halloween costume2. Dirty Martini with a Dog Cone

Put your dog’s cone of shame to use with this adorable dog Halloween costume! Find something similar to a toothpick, like a wooden rod you can find at a local craft store like Micheals. Tape it to the inside of the cone of shame, as the dogs call it! For your olives, buy two or three green styrofoam balls from the craft store. Using a red marker or red felt, make a red circle for the pimento stuffing on your green ball. Push your finished green balls on to the toothpick, and you’ve got yourself a dog martini!

If you have a puppy that is all one color, this is the costume for you! Just put white spots on your pup’s back to look like a baby doe! Make sure to buy dog paint or dog hair coloring (check out Pet Paint) to ensure you’re using pet-safe products that will wash right off.

Your pup is going to steal hearts in this dog Halloween costume! Just use red construction paper and cut out a heart shaped like the TY heart. Then use yellow construction paper to cut out a T and a Y for the letters and glue them to your heart. You can use some string or yarn to tie it to your pup’s collar!


DIY dog Halloween costume5. Hot Air Balloon Dog

This is such an adorable costume and your pup is going to rock it! Have your pup put on his or her harness and attach brown construction paper to each side of the harness!

For a more ambitious costume, you can go for the “Up” house from the Disney Pixar movie, Up. You’ll need to make a little house that can attach to your dog’s harness.
