In this month’s Michaels Makers post I will be showing you how to make homemade halloween costume for dogs. This costume was super fun to make. Not to mention my dog was in the best mood during the entire process, as you can see on her cute little face. When I Michaels told us we had to create a Halloween costume my mind went nuts! I started thinking of so many different things but the one thing that made complete sense was elsa and my dog. So the two got together and they are now living happily ever after. This costume is really easy and I know you can do it! Let’s get started!
YOU WILL NEED… Headband | Yarn | Glue Gun | Fabric Fusion | Blue & White Felt | Tulle in Shades of Blue
STEP ONE… Take your tulle and cut strips the same size. This will vary depending on how big or small your dog it.
STEP TWO …Pass the tulle around the headband and tie a not. Make sure to make the ends even on top before tying the knot. STEP THREE…To make the hair you will wrap your yarn around the back of a chair like below. Put hot glue on a piece of felt then wrap it around the yarn in the middle. This will secure your yarn so it stays in place. When you are done take the yarn off of the chair and cut the “loop” to create two long pieces of hair on each side! It’s that easy. STEP FOUR …Time to make the neck tie. I figured I would man up the elsa costume a little. Cut your felt in small strips.
STEP FIVE…Cut small pieces of fabric fusion and place them on the ends of the felt. Add a second strip of felt directly on top of the fabric fusion to create one long strip of felt.
STEP SIX…To connect the neck piece I added two small pieces of white felt on each end to connect under the body of the dog.
For the hair of elsa, I realize she has a braid but Ceaux Ceaux (co-co) wanted long luscious locks! P.S. To secure the hair I took two pieces from each side and tied it under her chin. Voila! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Make sure to check out the other costumes created by the other Michaels bloggers.
