We had such fun with our Design Team creating DIY Dog Halloween costumes last year from Kunin Felt. Check out the clever costumes here! Oh Yes I we have an honorary dog, Laura’s guinea pig the cutest candy corn costume ever!
The talented Jonathan Fong also shared his pups in their adorable pilgrim costumes. Find his tutorial here.
Costume Making Tips:
1. If you have a pet who does not like wearing anything except a collar or harness just add a small scarf or soft attachments to the collar or harness. You can wear the full costume and let your pet be your accessory.
2. As you can see from this happy “Lady Bug”, Chad’s pup Finn loves his costume. It fits his body very much like a winter dog coat and since he is used to wearing one the costume is an easy one for a dog to wear. Use pet coat as a pattern guide to make a costume or decorate an existing coat with felt cut outs.
3. Use a non toxic glue if you are not sewing the costume and we also have a sticky back felt which will adhere to itself or other materials. Check and remove any pins used. If using elastic, the soft elastic used for baby items is a good choice. No buttons or wires in Dog Costumes. Not all dogs are chewers but better to err on the safety side.
Did you know that pet owners spend nearly half a billion on pet costumes each year! So if you can make your own DIY Dog Costume from felt you will be able to make any of the costumes shown easily and inexpensively. Find all of the tutorial links here!
