This simple do-it-yourself costume is perfect for pups that don’t care for clothes and won’t tolerate the fuss of headgear. Just hand-draw or print the infamous Ty hangtag (or, buy one that’s already made right here) and attach to their collar. Simple and sweet!

Super cute on the outside, super sweet on the inside just like your dog! Craft this clever piñata pup costume by sewing or gluing strips of colorful felt to a simple and affordable dog shirt. Easy-peasy and oh so cute!

No watering needed to grow this hilarious Chia Pet! Just add four terracotta colored sleeves to a bundle of plastic plants (plastic aquarium plants work perfectly because they’re soft, flexible and realistic).

Turn a cone of shame into a cute and clever costume that’s filled with spirit! Just slide two tennis ball, styrofoam, or paper “olives” (don’t forget the red pimentos!) onto a lightweight dowel rod and glue inside the cone. Cheers!

Bath time has never been so cute! Turn your precious pup into a cute and cuddly loofah. Gather, bunch, and glue or stitch lots and lots of colorful tulle onto a fitted dog t-shirt. Add a rubber ducky and a rope loop to complete the look. Good clean fun!

This scuba dog costume is perfect for dogs that love to swim or for pet parents living in colder regions that want a costume that also keeps their pup warm! A doggy bodysuit, like the Shed Defender, works perfectly as a wetsuit. Depending on the size of your dog, small water bottles or empty 2-liter bottles painted and wrapped in electrical tape double as air tanks. A kid’s snorkel set and foam cutout flippers complete the look.
