DIY Christmas Cat Costume


You know who deserves a gift this Christmas? Your cat. True, they might not want an outfit/costume but hey, they’re going to get one now! If you’re looking to make a DIY Christmas Cat Costume then you’ve come to the right place.

Please note: This is not a professional costume, in fact any professional would probably laugh at this. (For good reason). It’s simply me having fun, making my cat a costume that she’ll want to take off almost immediately.

Follow these steps or go ahead and watch the video below:

You’ll need:

  • Fabric
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Needle and thread
  • Pen

Step 1

Find a piece of scrap fabric you have at home. I used an old scarf but anything red or festive looking will be perfect. Make sure that you have enough to cover your cat with ease.

Step 2

After measuring your cat, measure along the fabric (adding a few extra cm’s) and mark where you’re going to cut. A pen will be useful to indicate where to cut. You should be left with a square type shape. If you like, you could cut the back-end of the costume round or in triangles, any shape to suit your DIY Christmas Cat Costume design.

Cut your ribbon into four even length strips.

Step 3

Attach ribbon strips: two on the top section of the fabric where your cats neck would be; two strips in the middle of the fabric where your cat’s waist area.

Step 4

Spend over 5 minutes attempting to put said costume on your cat.

Admire  your handiwork.

Additional step

If you’re fabric is very plain then you can add additional embellishments to give the costume a more Christmassy look.

If none of this makes sense then please watch this:


And there you have it folks, an easy way to show your cat how much you love him/her. Granted, this is definitely more for you than your cat, consider it a bonding moment.

I hope you know that this is simply the first of many Christmas posts still to come!

Please be sure to let me know what you think? Would you make this for your cat? Or maybe your dog?

Thanks, VB xx
