This is a set of a cute witch’s hat and bandana.
Black and orange are Halloween colors.

The length of the bandana can be adjusted, so you can use it from big dogs to small dogs without worrying about their physique.

■Handmade Halloween treats「Jack O’ Lantern」
Many Halloween dishes use pumpkins.
I made “Kabocha Obake（Jack O’ Lantern）” for my dog.
I would like to show you how to make it.
|②Wrap the pumpkin squash with plastic wrap, and microwave for about 30 minutes to soften. (Depending on the pumpkin and the wattage of the microwave, it may be better to warm it for around 1 hour.)|
|③ Cut off the upper part of the pumpkin horizontally.|
|④ Use a large spoon or fork to scoop out the inside of the pumpkin squash before it cools.|
|⑤ Use a knife to carve a “Jack O’ Lantern” face on the front of the pumpkin.|
|⑥ Add your favorite dog food and vegetables to the pumpkin squash. I added the dry food, apples, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, and wet food that I eat every day.|
Pumpkin fillings will make your dog happy if you put them on their daily food.

Why don’t you take a commemorative photo with your dog and your family dressed up?
