$5.00 Pet Costume

Meet Oscar the Grouch..oops I mean Tiffany...my 4 year old Brussels Griffon...



Today's post is brought to you by the letter "O" for Oscar the Grouch. I am sharing with you a costume you can create for less than $5.00 for your furry friend.

I used an old basket that my neighbor was throwing out, cut it down to fit and then spray painted it Brilliant Silver by Krylon (on sale at Hobby Lobby for 30% off) to mimic a trash can. Some items I already had on hand, black construction paper, orange ribbon and chalk paint was used to create the pennant flag. I purchased one can of green hair color from Walmart for $2.17 and gently sprayed Tiffany's hair. For her face, I sprayed it on my hands and then rubbed it on the hair near her eyes. 
My dogs love being pulled every year in my red wagon through the neighborhood to trick or treat. This basket will fit in the wagon perfectly! So there you have it a pet costume for only $5.00.

Now that is a spray paint addiction...when you have to paint the dog! Love it!!! Great easy costume and your dog is super cute with or without his costume.
