Halloween has gone to the dogs! Have you been searching all over the internet for some fun dog Halloween costume ideas? Well you’re in luck! To help your dog celebrate the spookiest time of the year, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite DIY dog costumes that includes some pawsome pictures and instructions on how to make dog costumes. So, what’re you waiting for? Let’s start with obvious…
1. Martini Dog
Turn your pup into a signature cocktail on Halloween with this Martini Dog costume by Homes Alive Pets. There are no instructions with this tutorial, but based on the photo, you’ll only need a few items to recreate the look—most importantly, the cone of shame. The rest you can use from items you probably already have around the house or you can make an “original dog-tail.”
2. Angel and Devil
Whether your fur babies are typically naughty or nice, there’s a costume that fits their vibe! This tutorial by Vicky Bermudez shows you how to create an angel and devil headband that your pet can adorably rock on Halloween.
3. Bat Dog
I can’t sew to save my life. That’s what I love most about this bat costume—no sewing required! Not only is it perfect for the black dogs in your life, it’s also easy to make. Simply get your hot glue gun, some scissors and your dog’s harness, and you’re on your way to creating this classic Halloween costume. Watch the video above to find out how exactly to make it.
4. DIY Bloody Bandana
“Play dead” can take on whole new meaning with this dog Halloween costume from Erika Lindquist at Sew DoggyStyle. It’s also perfect for dogs who might not like wearing a full-on costume but don’t mind a bandana around their neck. If you have a dog with light-colored fur, throw some pet-safe red dye on your dog’s fur for a more dramatic effect. Find out how to make this dog costume over at Sew Doggystyle.
5. Taco Emoji (Bonus Second Costume: Pizza Emoji)
Emojis meet dogs with these two creative costumes featuring a taco and a pizza. I love this taco costume for dogs because a) what dog doesn’t love pizza? and b) the taco costume reminds me of the Taco Bell Chihuahua. (However, the kids might not get the reference.) And the best part, if you’re scrambling for a costume idea, these won’t take long to put together. Find out how to make them in the video above.
6. Wile E. Coyote
Looney Tunes were a big part of my childhood, and my favorite two characters were the Roadrunner and Wile E. Coyote. Wile E. Coyote came up with thousands of crazy ideas in his effort to catch the quick and nimble roadrunner, but none is more iconic than the time he strapped a rocket to his back and lit the fuse. That’s what Amanda Gordon was thinking of when she designed this costume for the “little bird hunter” in her life. Not only is it iconic with the ACME rocket, it’s also super easy to make. Find out how to make over at Life at Cloverhill.
7. Robber With Cash (Bonus Second Costume: Eggs Over Yeezy)
This Halloween, my German Shepherd Forest will be part of my costume. I plan to dress up as a vault dweller from the video game series Fallout, with Forest playing as Dogmeat. If you want to dress up with your dog, too, try one of these two easy DIY dog costumes: Robber with cash or the eggs over Yeezy. They’re both super creative—one is a great pun after all—and it gives you a good excuse to bring your dog to any Halloween parties you’re invited to. Find out to make these costumes in the video above.
8. Harry “Pawter”
Turn your four-legged child into The Boy Who Lived with this magical Harry Pawter costume by Instructables user sarahndipity. With felt as the main material for this look, it might just be light enough for your pet to wear for more than five minutes!
It’s been more than 20 years since the game first launched, but Pokemon is still as popular as ever. You can join the Pokemon craze with this DIY Charizard dog costume and bring Pokemon Go to life. For some added fun, paint a tennis ball red and white, and your dog can chase his Pokeball around, too. Find out how to make it in the video above.
10. “Cereal” Killer
I am obsessed with serial killers and love puns, so this “cereal killer” costume is the best of both worlds. Best part? It’s super easy to make too, since the main part of the costume is a cereal box. Check out how to make it over at Sew DoggyStyle.
11. Red Riding Hood And The Big Bad Wolf
Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? Capture the spirit of this classic tale with this easy DIY dog costume set for both your small and large dog. This costume set was created by Mary G., who featured it on the website Coolest Homemade Costumes. The best part about these dog costumes? They’re ridiculously easy to make. All you need is a basket and to hit the craft store for the appropriate fabrics to sew together. For more information about this costume, go to Coolest Homemade Costumes.
12. Dog-osaurus Rex
Dinosaurs can roam the earth again with this fun, easy-to-make dog costume. It might just be me, but the dinosaur dog costume is one of the classic dog Halloween costume ideas, and you can’t go wrong with it. Plus this costume can be scaled for a dog of any size—you’ll just need more fabric to fit your dog. Find out how to make this costume at Life at Clover Hill.
13. Beanie Baby
Revive the Beanie Baby craze of the ’90s by turning your pet into a giant version of these fuzzy toys with this tutorial by Cats & Crafts. It won’t take much time, effort, or supplies, and the result is beyond endearing. This is also a costume that your cat may not even realize is on since it’s not much more than a collar. Plus, this tutorial contains three other DIY costumes for cats, including a witch, a Starbucks cup and a s’more!
