12 Easy DIY Dog Costumes

I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite dog costumes that are both easy to make and adorable!

There’s a great variety here and you can pick one based on your dog’s likes and dislikes, for example, my Pomchi Charlie does not like wearing hats! A simple dog vest or bandana may be a better option if your dog does not like wearing costumes.

When choosing a costume for Halloween this year there are a few things you may want to keep in mind for their safety and comfort.

  • The costume isn’t too heavy
  • It does not obstruct your dog’s senses
  • Your dog likes wearing it
  • Avoid a costume with lots of loose parts, buttons and embellishments
  • Supervise your dog when she is in costume so you can monitor for safety and comfort

Have fun creating your costumes and if you post a picture on Instagram please tag me @cherbear.creative. I really would love to see what you make!

1. DIY PIÑATA DOG COSTUME

I love this costume featured on Fun365 because it’s so colorful! I think it would work just as well without the hat if you want to make a simpler version. All you would need for this is some colorful felt, elastic and hot glue! 

2. DIY TUTUS

I love these colorful tutus by Ellie Grace Crafts. I made tutus for my daughters when they were younger and they are super easy and fun to make. You can buy kits and choose your colors over on her Etsy shop!
