{Paper Love Crafts} Mardi Gras Masks

Mardi Gras Mask Craft

Mardi Gras is an exciting time to celebrate with friends and family.  It's one of the most colorful times of the year with the richest foods, drinks, and gorgeous costumes.    If you are celebrating today, don't forget to spice up your outfit with a beautiful mask.

What You'll Need:

Paper
Pencil
Shiny or colored plastic-coated paper party plates
Scissors
Glitter glue
Shiny stickers
Hole punch
Curling ribbon
Beads
Elastic thread
Needle
Wooden dowel
Paint
Paintbrushes

Use our pattern as a starting point for making your own mask. Draw your pattern, and lay it on the paper plate. Trace around the pattern, and cut it out.

Carefully cut out the eye holes. Use glitter glue to draw lines around the eye holes. Let glue dry.

Paste shiny stickers onto your mask.

Punch holes at the bottom corners of your mask, and thread strands of curling ribbon through the holes. String beads on the ends of the ribbons.

If you want to wear your mask, poke small holes on either side of the mask and thread a loop of elastic string long enough to stretch around your head.

If you'd like to hold the mask in front of your face, paint a wooden dowel. Glue it to the bottom corner of the mask.

Make lots of different masks, and switch identities all through Mardi Gras. Keep everyone guessing who you are.

Mardi Gras is a great holiday for making noise and celebrating, and noisemakers are the perfect way to join in the fun. Continue to the next page to learn how to create your own Mardi Gras clink-clank noisemaker in just a few simple steps.
