Halloween Has Gone To The Dogs Part 2
Some more adorable DIY dog Halloween costumes
Last week we started to present some adorable costumes that you can make yourself for your furbaby so that both he and you could enjoy a lovely Halloween together. Because we still have a lot of ideas on our mind, we’ve decided to present some other interesting tips on how to make a few more DIY costumes for Spike.
1. Add a custom-made dog tag to his collar
You can use different types of materials when making this funny collar and many ideas about how it should look like. You can write your pup’s name on it, or glue a pretty flower using felt as a preferred material or leather. The choice is yours, but the result will be adorable.
Just a piece of advice, though: whatever design you choose, please do not remove your furbaby’s ID from his collar. We know that you will try to keep him safe during the Halloween season, but you never know when he’ll try to escape your house and, without his ID, he will be harder to find.
2. Turn your dog into a pup-cake
Everybody loves cupcakes, right? And all of your friends love your pup. Then why don’t you transform Spike into a pup-cake, who they’ll love even more? All you’ll need for this costume is a paper mache box for the base, some felt for the filling and cotton for the frosting. Your furry friend will be the star of the party, just be careful not to let your friends taste the cake.
3. Mommy’s mummy
If you don’t want to spend a lot of time making a complicated and elaborate design for your pup’s Halloween costume, you can go with the classic mummy look. With only a few pieces of medical gauze, you can turn Spike into the mummy dog that will haunt you in your nightmares. And you know what the best part is? Your furbaby will actually follow everyone, frightening them, because that’s what dogs do.
4. Turn your dog into a skeleton-pup
Although it might seem cruel to paint your pup, and we’re definitely not encouraging you to use permanent colors, there are actually some pet-friendly paints on the market, which will wash up after a couple of baths. By using them, you’ll be able to transform your dog into a lion, a tiger, a zebra or a skeleton-pup. Let your imagination do the work here.
5. The Bat-pup to the rescue
Who doesn’t love Batman? We most certainly do! And we’re sure that most of your friends feel the same way about the eared hero. So, for this Halloween, make a Bat-pup costume for Spike. You’ll need a piece of felt, some glue, scissors and a lot of patience – probably some scissor skills too, but those you cannot buy. And you’ll have your own super-duper good boy to come and rescue the party, whenever it hits a low point.
And there you have it: 5 more costume ideas which you can make for your favorite four-legged friend.
