With Halloween coming up faster than I've realized, I'm researching a few easy DIY costumes for my two pups. Yes, dogs are allowed to embark (pun intended!) on holiday festivities, as well. Luckily, I've spotted these darling costumes from Woman's Day, complete with a Frenchman get-up that's sure to make the ladies go ga-ga!

To make the Frenchman's costume (which works best with small dogs), you need just a few materials:

  • 11/2 feet. blue-and-white-striped material
  • Piece of black felt 10 inch square
  • Iron-on stiffening 10 inch square
  • 2 feet red fabric
  • 11/2 feet white bias binding
  • 10 inch black bias binding
  • White Velcro fastening

Easy enough, right? Of course, there's a free pattern download right here to make it even easier. Hurray to Woman's Day for giving our furry friends a cute, sassy and simple Halloween!

I can't wait to Trick-or-Treat with my two pups, although I'll admit -- they may be fighting over which one gets to be the chef...
