This happened :) Miss Brie dressed up as herself for Halloween. This costume was actually made by Brie鈥檚 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 鈥 we love your creative process and DIY skills. One million cheesy hugs and kisses to you!

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鈥檚 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鈥檚 favorite cheese (cheddar?) and maybe add some fake salami to turn it into a charcuterie board.
