5 Favorite DIY Pet Halloween Costumes + 5 favorite Etsy store ones too

It is almost that time of year again, that time that we all love to get dressed up and say those magical words... TRICK OR TREAT. This year with Covid-19 many of us won't be trick or treating, however, don't let it dull the sheer joy of dressing up and having fun and of course eating some tasty treats!

Today I'm sharing some fun DIY and some super cute Etsy costumes I've found! Now, before you go getting all excited, please make sure your pet feels comfortable and safe in any costume first and foremost. Ozzy, for instance, doesn't care for a full costume but does enjoy some bows and her super cute pumpkin shirt. Poly-ana HATES costumes and simply lays down if they're on her to show her dismay. So please be sure your fur-kid feels safe and relaxed if you choose to dress them up with you this year.

Now without further ado, here are my 5 favorite DIY's and they include costumes for dogs, guinea pigs, cats, and even horses!
