Peeking-Out Mask craft

Make a unique costume or a special decoration! This mask can be a replica of one from a far-away culture or a unique Halloween craft to reflect your true personality.

  • 1.

    Use Crayola Scissors to cut out a paper oval that is slightly larger than your head. Cut a paper nose with rectangles for tabs on each side. Fold the tabs back. Glue your nose in place with Crayola Glue Sticks.

  • 2.

    Cut out eye holes. Cut out a mouth and glue it in place. With Crayola Scissors, make inside cuts for cheeks or other features. Glue bits of colored paper or foil on the back of the mask so the color shows through the cut-outs.

  • 3.

    On both sides of your mask, cut a short line from the outside edge to the center. Make one line about one-third down from the top and another line two-thirds down. Slightly overlap these pieces and glue. This will make your mask 3-D.

  • 4.

    Decorate the mask any way you want. You could cut out interesting shapes and designs from colored construction paper and glue them on. Add ears, horns or any other parts. Cut lots of delicate designs for hair, feathers, or anything else you can imagine.

  • 5.

    Attach ribbon, stickers, or other decorative items if you wish. Cut small holes near the edges of your mask at about the level of your eyes. Tie yarn so you can wear your mask. Or hang it on a wall to display.
