As Halloween is fast approaching (cue scary photo of me above), I thought I would take the opportunity to share a Halloween mask DIY that takes only the most basic supplies! If you ever find yourself in a hurry to make an outfit, then check your crafty cupboard to find it bare, this one is for you!
I've drawn out 3 mask designs for you which you can choose from. Download thebatman mask hereand thecat and bandit masks here
All you need to do is print out your favourite onto plain A4 paper, cut out along the black lines, then grab the following supplies;
- A Black Bin-bag
- Packaging Tape
Start by opening the bin-bag out flat onto the table. Then cover an area big enough to fit your mask in, with tape going vertically. Once this is done we need to make it thicker, so we are going to repeat the same process but this time place the tape horizontally. Keep layering until you feel that it is thick enough. I used 3 layers on mine, but they could have done with a couple more.
Once you think it is thick enough cut out the taped area. The side of the bag that we didn't tape to will fall away and you can just discard this.
Then draw around your mask template and cut out.
Then simply add your elastic or ribbon, throw on a bin bag cape and you are good to go!
