7 Last Minute DIY Halloween Dog Costumes

Halloween is right around the corner – no literally – only a couple more days until the spooky day! Do you have a costume yet?  I have loved dressing our dogs up over the years, and enjoy creating quick and easy DIY costumes for them to wear on our walk around the neighbourhood on Halloween evening. Plus, it always makes a good photo-opt! 

Whether you’re crafting your own costume for your pup, or buying a last minute costume from your local pet store, here are some of my favourite looks for the spooktacular night. 

Beanie Babies

The 90’s girl inside me absolutely LOVED this idea when I found it on Pinterest. It was so easy to recreate and highly recommend – everyone loved it. 

Sushi 

Talk about an easy to put together look! Not sure how long this would stay on with my two dogs, but definitely worth the photo! 

Pennywise 

I mean, perfect for if it’s raining outside too! Grab a balloon and you’re ready to go. 

Ghost

Have an old white sheet hanging around? Turn it into a cute ghost costume. Works for humans too! 

Mummy

While this may not stay on the longest either, it’s super cute and super simple.

This is what our Koda girl is going to be this year! Super easy and we purchased a t-shirt from the dollar store and tacked a sock onto the front. 

Chewbacca

And this is what our dog Ace is going to be! So simple and so accurate with his red fur and chewy-like growl. 

Don’t forget to always measure your doggo before making anything and ensure they’re comfortable, whatever it is you’re dressing them up as! 

Have a safe and Happy Halloween! 🎃👻
