What You’ll Need:

  • A dog sweater
  • Plastic aquarium plants (which will enable you to recycle this costume next year or give it to a friend) or freshly picked clovers from your lawn
  • Orange felt fabric
  • Muslin
  • Glue gun + glue sticks

Step 1:

First, use a glue gun or other adhesive to attach the aquarium plants (or fresh plants) to the dog sweater (bonus points if you find a used one!).

Step 2:

Next, use the orange felt and muslin to create a set of plant pots to cover your pup’s legs—you can follow this great tutorial on The Flirty Blog to create a comfortable harness.

And voila! Your pup is an adorable Chia pet for All Hallow’s Eve!
