PETS: DIY pinata costume

Studio DIY likes to create fun costumes for their cute little chihuahua and last year sweet little Bella dressed up as a (very fitting) pinata!  To create your own little pinata you’ll need to get some different colors of crepe paper, cut them into fringe then hot glue them to a regular dog sweater.  Grab a mini sombrero hat and your pup is ready for a Halloween fiesta!
