Ghost Dog Costume
A ghost costume is another easy to make costume. This is especially frightening when a pack of dogs wear it together (as in the photo below). It’s also cheap to make as you will only need a white, twin size sheet, a length of elastic, a black marking pen, needle and thread. The challenging part of this costume is having your dog relax and allowing you to throw a sheet over his head.
