How to Dress Your Stuffed Animal

Stuffed animals are not only good to play with, but they actually look really cute if they are dressed properly with cute little clothes. You may use your own creativity to decorate the dresses for your stuffed toys and decorate them on your house during Christmas. If you want to send your loved relatives or little ones a nice gift in the festive season, then you can gift these dressed stuffed toy animals as well. So, you might be brimming with ideas about decorating your stuffed toy animals.

But, you must make sure to think out of the box and make a design that acts as a surprise element for everyone and also looks cute. When looking for Christmas decoration ideas for dolls and stuffed toys, most of the people think of dressing them like Santa Claus or his elves. However, you must have a keen eye, observe the trends around the festival, blend the ideas altogether, and dress your cute stuffed animal like that.

Kinds of dresses that you can use

Christmas is not only about Santa, his reindeer, or the elves. There is a particular color scheme that we can easily associate with Christmas. If you are into creating snowmen, then you can easily guess what kind of dresses to use. If your stuffed toy is big enough then you can use the garment of the snowman to dress the animal. Not only will it look cute, but also it will give a classy and an uncanny touch to your sense of creativity.

You can primarily use two types of clothes to decorate your stuffed animal toys, one being the already used ones, and the other being newly bought clothes which will be exclusively used to dress the toys. By used clothes, we mean those clothes which you have ceased to use in recent times. If you are considering using much older clothes that are tattered and ragged, then you might easily skip the idea.


Unique Design Ideas

It will also be a nice idea to put the Christmas cap on a stuffed teddy bear or a penguin. If you have any old Santa Claus doll in your house, you can just take its hat off, and put it on the head of your favorite animal. If you think it does not fit well, you can stitch it around the head of the stuffed toy.

You can also use clothes with designs like checked or polka dots, probably cutting the piece from your old garments. Make sure to match the color with the Christmas season. If you make your stuffed animal wear a bright yellow shirt or dark blue scarf, then it will neither look cute nor attractive at all.


Dressing Ideas With new Clothes

If you are buying new clothes from your nearby store, then make sure that it matches the mood of Christmas. You should buy new clothes only if you are thinking of gifting the stuffed animal to one of your dearest and closest pal. You should measure the size of the cloth by wrapping it around the animal, stitch it like a shirt or a robe, and then put decorative items like buttons or laces or belts on it.

It will also be a good idea to put a scarf around the neck of your recordable teddy bear or toy penguin. When you dress your stuffed animal with new clothes, it will last many days and look amazing on the toys.



To live the spirit of Christmas, you can try these really cool ideas. If you want to put it around your room, then it will look cute, and if you want to gift someone, then it will surely be widely appreciated. Try the dressing ideas mentioned above, put on your thinking cap as to how can you make it better, and make your own designs.
