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!
