3 Cute DIY Pet Costumes

New video! This one shows how to create 3 different cute pet costumes for Halloween!

The first one is a Beanie Baby costume!

If you are around my age, chances are you probably owned your fair share of beanie babies growing up. Before my family even adopted our pug, I had (and loved) the Pug beanie baby named Pugsley - so here is a costume inspired by that!

The Ty tag template is here:

Hover over it, and click the Pop-out icon in the upper right corner.
Click the download icon in the top center. Locate and double click the file to open it.
Once it opens, you should be able to click to add your text to it.

(Note: those of you who use a non-Gmail email address may not be able to access this file due to the way Google Drive works. If you have a Gmail address, open another window and log into it, then reload this page. If you're having trouble you can email me at

For this costume, you will need:

-the template above
-red paper
-gold or tan paper
-white paper
-a pencil
-a hole punch

The second one is Hairy Paw-ter!

For this costume, you will need:

-black stiff felt
-red felt
-gold felt
-a glue gun

The third costume is a butterfly!

For this costume, you will need:

-black stiff felt
-blue felt
-white felt
-a pipe cleaner
-2 pom poms
-a glue gun

If you re-create one of these, I'd love it if you'd share it with me on instagram @essyjae :)

  1. I love how proud she looks wearing all her costumes! Anything more than the ty tag and mine fall to their side and refuse to move, lol.

    1. Haha! Yes he's worn many a costume, so I guess he's used to it! I don't think he minds the attention, though :)
