Dressing up for Halloween is tons of fun but it can also be time-consuming and expensive. That’s why you need ideas for a few easy and fun DIY Halloween Costumes for pets. We’ve compiled a list of some of the top pet-friendly costumes you need to try this Halloween season.
1. A DIY Bloody Bandana
We love this frightfully funny bandana. The super simple guide from Sew Doggy Style shows you how to create this fun DIY Halloween costume step-by-step. The best part is that it’s a no-sew design, which is great news for pet parents with limited sewing skills. And, for pets that aren’t comfortable with full-on costumes, an accessory like a bandana allows them to join the fun without discomfort.
2. Lego Pet
Celebrate Halloween this year as a Lego family with this tutorial from WikiHow.com. All you have to do is scale everything down for your pet. To create this look, all you have to do is glue something like Gatorade bottle tops to a shoe box and spray paint. Then, make a bigger-sized box for you and other family members that want to join the fun.
3. Adorable Little Monster Costume
Another fantastic no-sew idea from Small + Friendly is this frighteningly easy monster costume. According to the site, all you need is some affordable material and about thirty minutes to turn your cat or dog into a green, three-eyed monster the whole neighborhood will scream over. They also have cute bat and ladybug costume ideas, so check those out while you’re there!
4. Spooky Ghost Costume
This costume is so easy, there isn’t even a tutorial for it! All you need is a white sheet and scissors. Just make sure that it’s not too long so your pet doesn’t trip on the sheets. Cut out a few old sheets for you and your family members then make this Halloween theme all about ghosts.
Making a good costume doesn’t have to cost a ton or take hours at a sewing machine. All you need is a few clever ideas with some crafting basics like glue and scissors. While you’re busy planning costumes, candy, and treats, make sure to brush up on our Halloween safety tips for keeping your pets safe on Halloween!
Always remember to practice wearing costumes with your pets before the big day and use high-value treats when acclimating them to their Halloween styles. If your pet freezes or otherwise looks uncomfortable, snap a photo and remove all costumes. Your pet’s safety and well-being are far more important than a silly holiday costume.
