Why stop the fun Halloween costume ideas with just humans? Get your dogs involved, too!

With this “Merdog” boxtume idea, you can give your dog a fun and exciting mermaid-style boxtume that is sure to be both fun, and worth a good laugh.

Follow along with these easy steps!

Step 1: Prepare an old moving box that will fit your pet and cut out one side for the legs and a hole at the top for their head. Then paint over all of the writing on the box with a base color.

Step 2: Cut out a piece of cardboard in the shape of a scale and then trace it in rows on the sides of the box.

Step 3: Paint the traced scale any color of your choosing and let them dry.

Step 4: Trace and cut out the shape of a mermaid tail from a piece of scrap cardboard or scrapbook paper and paint it the base color if needed.

Step 5: Cut out paper scales from scrapbook paper and glue them to the end of the tail like a fan.

Step 6: Add glitter everywhere!

Step 7: Take photos of your pet and enjoy!
