Ten Dangerously Adorable DIY Dog Costumes

August 27, 2018

While you’re buried under face paint and tulle trying to piece together the most unique Halloween costume ever, it’s important we don’t forget about having our furry friends join in on the fun! Whether you’re a veteran dog mom or currently fostering a pup (go you!), these awesome DIY puppy costumes will make sure your canine can join in on all the fun!

As always, avoid small parts and anything that could be dangerous for your pet to ingest (no hairspray is worth it). Otherwise, make one of the cool designs that are not only adorable, but comfy for your doggie to adorn.

New for 2018: We get it, not everyone has the time to DIY their own pet costumes. So this year, we have included some similar store bought costumes to the handmade ones.

    I would love to do this! But I need two things in order to do it. 1) a super cute costume or sewing machine and 2) a dog. I think I need that second thing first. ^_^ lol
