10 Easy DIY Dog & Horse Costumes for Halloween

Updated September 22, 2022.

Make this Halloween your dog’s best! Plus, get in on the four-legged fun without breaking the bank. These do-it-yourself costume ideas for your dog are adorable, and more importantly, they’re easy!

Always remember that costumes should not restrict movement, hearing, eyesight, or the ability to breathe! If you’re going to include paint on your pet costume, always use non-toxic, pet-safe paint. This is a favored idea for pets who are uncomfortable in any cloth costumes! Non-toxic paint is important for ensuring safety if your pet ingests the paint and keeps their skin clear of harmful chemicals.

1. Little Lion Dog Costume

All you need is some felt in varying in colors, scissors, and a glue gun. Create your mane and roar all night!

2. Saddled-up Super Horse Costume

Saddle up your super horse with a red bedsheet! Iron or stitch your Super Woman or Super Man emblem on the sheet for an easy superhero horse costume! (Although the jumping picture is adorable, please do not jump while in costume to avoid any injuries or hazards the cape might pose!)

6. The Perfect Unicorn Horse Costume

Every princess needs a unicorn! Many stores sell the horn, but if you want to get crafty, you will need Mod Podge and a birthday hat! Cut the party hat in half to create a tighter horn, and Mod Podge (or hot glue/ staple) is in place! Have fun and decorate the horn in any color, or even add some glitter! Create a flower necklace out of paper or hot glue fake flowers for a lightweight decoration.

7. Back-yard Business Dog Costume

Your best business partner couldn’t be any more adorable! Cut the collar and cuffs off of an old button-down and throw on a tie. Be sure to cut the tie and collar in the back and fasten them with tape or something that will easily detach to prevent a choking hazard. Briefcase full of treats is optional.

8. Painted Barnyard

Tap into your creative side and paint your horse with pet-friendly, non-toxic paint to create a spooky skeleton horse or an adventurous giraffe!

9. The Bite-less Bat Dog Costume

Print out some bat-wing templates and cut out three layers from felt. Layer them together, and sew (or hot glue) the edges together. Place your wings on your pet’s harness, and secure it on!

10. Mickey and Minnie Mouse

For your horse, all you’ll need is a red onesie or long pajama set big enough for your four-legged friend. Or, create from felt! Stitch on white buttons, create Mickey ears on an elastic, and fit yellow cuffs for shoes around the ankles!
