Halloween is my favorite holiday and in today’s challenge post I will show you how to make a Frida Kahlo Dog Costume. Now I know what you are thinking…How on earth can we make this happen. It’s quite simple you give your dog a tranquilizer (not really) and pray they don’t shake off the flower crown and bite off the shirt. Lucky for me my dog Ceaux Ceaux is a true model. She simply LOVES dressing up and sitting still for hours while I snap photos of her. She even has a blog, check it out here!
I have been a Michaels Maker for 2 years now so make sure and check out all my projects I have made so far!
The good thing about this project is you can use all the supplies for yourself if you don’t want to dress up your pet!
Here are the supplies you will need for your flower crown.
Step 1: Cut a piece of white bandana that fits across the top of your dogs head
Step 2: Cut 4 strands of yarn, make sure they hang off both sides of bandana
Step 3: Hot glue the yarn to the bandana
Step 4: Take the pieces that hang off, fold them up and hot glue to the top
Step 5: Cut your flowers off of stem and hot glue them all over the top of yarn
Step 6: Take your elastic headband and hot glue to the underneath of bandana
This makes it easy to keep on your dogs head. If the elastic is too big just cut it and tie a knot until it fits.
Supplies for your gold chain.
Step 1: Cut three pieces of your yarn, thread or whatever material you choose
Step 2: Tie a knot at one end
Step 3: Braid it
Step 4: Repeat all the steps until you have 3 separate braided pieces
Step 5. Braid all three together to make it chunky
Step 6: Tie off each end and leave a piece handing off to tie bow with
How gorgeous are these flowers! I love flower crowns! Somedays I like to wear them for fun!

I think we can all agree that she is a hot mess. What is crazy is the more I stare at it the more I laugh, and LOUD! I mean, she really looks like Frida!
I created her eyebrows by brushing on black eyeshadow and I also applied blush to her cute cheeks. STOP THE MADNESS!

I love this! My bulldog is going to be Freda as well this year!
Hi there! We can’t wait to try this out for our dog, named after Frida Kahlo! What did you use for the dress? We are having trouble finding something that will work for a larger dog…
Hey Claire! I actually ordered a Mexican shirt on ebay in Large and cut it and added velcro on the bottom where I cut it. Easy to take on and off! I hope this helps! Would love to see your dog’s costume!XOXO, Jade
