*Updated April 19 to include new costume ideas*
If you are like me, then any occasion is an occasion to dress up your pet. Easter is such a fun time to get your pampered pooch dressed up. I thought we could take this opportunity to look at some of the best costume ideas for doggy-dress-ups that you can make yourself.
Therefore, with Easter round the corner, I think it is time to get in the spirit. Here are some easy to make outfits for you and your pet to enjoy!
Bunny ears have to be the easiest item for both people and pets. Make sure you take into consideration the shape and size of your dog’s head; otherwise, your dog may not want to keep the ears on for a long time. At the very least, you should get a cute picture for your IG stream.
Check out these 2-minute pipe cleaner bunny ears for instructions on making your own. Alternatively, if you are a little more adventurous with your crafting skills you could try making these no-sew bunny ears.
Petal Collar costume
The petal collar costume requires a little more sewing skills. However, we think it is worth the effort. The result is just too cute and it is great for both cats and dogs. Although they might not agree if they had anything to say about it – in fact they may say it is the cone of shame.
The bee costume for dogs is sure to be popular and bring in some laughs for family and friends. If you are feeling especially creative and want a bumblebee with flare, then this costume is for you. It is a lot more work than the other outfits but I think it is worth it.
The hat is another easy to accessorize item for any doggy Easter costume. It also moves away from the more obvious Easter bunny outfits, making it ideal if you are looking for something a little different for your furry friend.
Buying a Pet Costume
Making a costume for pup can be time consuming. For the last minute costume for man’s best friend, you may want to consider buying an Easter outfit. Hop over to Etsy to browse some wonderful handmade outfits that will make your pup stand out from the pack.
Whatever you decide to try this Easter, just have fun. Do not be offended if your pet tries to burst out of his/her outfit. One final note of caution – please make sure that you keep your dog away from chocolate this Easter. Chocolate can cause your dog some serious health issues.
