8 Adorable DIY Halloween Dog Costumes

Earlier this year, Evan and I had a great time dressing up Cooper as a space dog for Gishwhes. We made his costume using toilet paper tubes, a small disposable baking pan, aluminum foil and tissue paper. It gave us the “dress up our dog” fever so now I am scouring the internet to find great costumes to dress up/torture Cooper with. 🙂

Here are a few of my favorite DIY Halloween Dog Costumes!


Love this adorable Dog Piñata costume from Studio DIY. Cooper would make an adorable piñata. Now to find a teeny tiny sombrero.


Check out this video tutorial from Make for your very own walking teddy bear costume.


OMG, Cooper would be such a cute Pup Cake! Now to follow this great tutorial from Lovely Indeed to make one for him!

Chia Pet Costume

I have loved this Chia Pet costume from I Found the Place blog ever since I saw it. It looks a little complex, so I better get to work now!

Princess Leia Costume

Are you a Star Wars fan? You should get out the yarn and make your dog some Princess Leia buns of their own. Such a cute costume tutorial from Make.

DIY Sushi Pet Costume

I love sushi and I love this adorable DIY Pet Sushi costume from eat.sleep.MAKE. Plus I think Cooper wouldn’t mind a costume that doesn’t involve his head quite as much.

Flower Dog Costume

Small and large dogs alike make adorable flower dogs. Check out this relatively easy DIY Flower Dog Costume Tutorial from DIYNetwork.


Want to go simple but cute? Make this DIY Dog Tutu using this great tutorial from Pretty Peas Paperie. Cooper might bight me if I made him wear one but he would be SO CUTE.

Which costume do you think Cooper would look best in?
