DIY: How to Make an Adorable Chia Pet Dog Costume for Halloween
Posted By Mike Chino On October 30, 2011 @ 2:00 pm In DIY,gallery,Green Halloween | 1 Comment
- 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
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!).
Next, use the orange felt and muslin to create a set of plant pots for 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!
