Not long until the children start discussing what costume they will dress up in for Halloween, and this year Merrie the Newfoundland will be with us, so we have been having a think about what she could dress up as, without costing a fortune and something that can be made at home, by myself or one of the children
Her love of all things food would make this Cupcake Dog Costume – Lovely Indeed a great choice.
Or maybe we could try the DIY Smores Dog Costume – Studio DIY but I think she may chew through that one too easily, perfect for a smaller dog!
The Wonder Woman No-Sew Dog Costume – Niqqi would definitely be Neva’s choice for Merrie, in fact they could be twins!
The Poncho and Hat Dog Costume – DIY Inspired is so easy to make, but it looks adorable.
The Ewok No-Sew Dog Costume – Tikkido would probably be the choice of Lochlan, as he is a huge Star wars Fan, although Merrie is probably bigger than an Ewok!
For a proper Halloween themed costume why not a Witch Dog Costume – Mimi and Tara
Or maybe a DIY Flower Basket Dog Costume – DIY Candy however this would probably work better on a small dog that you could carry, as Merrie would be an extremely big and heavy flower basket!!
The Ty Beanie Baby Tag Costume – Dream a Little Bigger is extremely clever and So easy to make, Merrie would be THE cutest Ty Beanie baby EVER!
I can just see Xene and Merrie dressed up together as DIY Rainbow Cotton Candy Costume – Brite and Bubbly
How about matching with your dog and both being a Pancake Halloween Costume – Brite and Bubbly
Do you love fish then how about a DIY Sushi Dog Costume – Eat Sleep Make
Merrie spends half her life digging things up in my garden so this would be perfect! DIY Garden Gnome Dog Costume – The Crafting Chicks
Or maybe a cute Butterfly Dog Costume – Apartment Therapy
After she missed out on a trip to Roarr! Maybe she could have a DIY Dinosaur Dog Hoodie – Crafty Carmen
I am sure Eowyn would love to dress Merrie in this DIY Unicorn Dog Costume – Live Colorful
But for a typical Halloween theme maybe this Spider Dog Costume – Tikkido
If you don’t want to spend ages making a costume how about No-Sew Little Red Riding Hood Dog Costume – Niqqi
If you are feeling a little hungry this Halloween, maybe a Taco Dog Costume – Brit.co
Or one of the children could do a joint costme as a police officer and K-9 Dog Costume – Lil Blue Boo
Or if you are feeling a little chilly and need a warm drink, a Pumpkin Spice Latte Dog Costume – So Easy Being Green
