DIY Halloween Felt Animal Masks: Quick, Easy, And Cheap

NOT SURE WHAT TO BE THIS HALLOWEEN? CHECK OUT THESE REALLY EASY MASKS MADE FROM FELT.  THEY’RE GREAT FOR ADULTS OR JUST A FUN PROJECT TO DO WITH YOUR KIDS!  THE PHOTOS BELOW ARE FOR THE BEAR MASK BUT YOU CAN USE THE INSTRUCTIONS TOWARD ANY OF THE MASKS.  THE BEAR MASK WAS MADE WITH 5 DIFFERENT COLOR FELT PIECES.

Sewing around each cutout piece gives the mask a folksy look. However, it does take longer to do. The fox and owl mask are sewn while the bear mask is just glued.

ATTACHED HERE ARE PDF PRINTOUTS OF EACH MASK:  Owl Mask, Fox Mask, Bear Mask

ALL YOU NEED:

FELT PIECES (can be bought at Michaels for $0.29 a sheet)

SCISSORS

GLUE (a glue gun or fabric glue works best)

A MARKER OR CHALK

YARN OR ELASTIC (for attaching to the mask in order to wear)

AFTER PRINTING OUT THE PDF, CUT OUT ALL THE PIECES.

BEGIN TRACING EACH CUT OUT PIECE ON TO YOUR FELT.

ONCE YOU HAVE ALL YOUR PIECES TRACED ONTO THE FELT, YOU CAN THEN CUT THEM OUT. DON'T FORGET TO CUT OUT THE EYE HOLES!

NOW YOU CAN BEGIN GLUEING EACH PIECE TO THE MASK

ONCE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING GLUED TOGETHER, CUT A SMALL HOLE IN ON EACH SIDE OF THE EYE.

NOW YOU CAN ATTACH YOUR YARN OR ELASTIC TO THE SMALL HOLE. NOW YOU CAN WEAR IT!
