How to Dress Your Dog Up as a Cheese Plate for Halloween
This happened :) Miss Brie dressed up as herself for Halloween. This costume was actually made by Brie’s Grandma, Rosa Vazquez, last year for Halloween. We loved it so much that we had to bring it to the office for a pet Halloween costume photo shoot. Rosa — we love your creative process and DIY skills. One million cheesy hugs and kisses to you!
– doily + colored paper
– fake grapes
– circular piece of foam
– white textured ribbon
– elastic or One-Wrap Velcro
– X-ACTO knife
– hot glue gun
1. Cut out a cardboard circle and adhere your colored paper and doily with hot glue.
2. Cut out a “cheese” slice from your foam or styrofoam “cheese wheel” and then add your white patterned ribbon with glue.
3. Glue your cheese, fake grapes and crackers onto your board to create your cheese plate.
Using a circular piece of foam (or styrofoam) is a great idea to replicate a wheel of cheese. Cut out a wedge to show that it’s been munched on and enjoyed. Hot glue it onto a cardboard circle covered with a doily and adorned with grapes and crackers.
Attach elastic strips, or One-Wrap Velcro, to your cheese plate to make this costume dog-wearable.
Get fancy with your cheese plate! Customize it to your pooch’s favorite cheese (cheddar?) and maybe add some fake salami to turn it into a charcuterie board.
Oh Miss Brie, you are so fancy with your bottle of red wine.
