Make Animal Masks – DIY Instructions
Before you start tinkering with the animal masks you should have all necessary materials already at your disposal.
Next, you should be clear, which animal mask you want. If you have decided on an animal mask, you should start with the outlines of the face. A pencil is used for this purpose and so the outlines of the animal you have chosen are drawn. If you are not a good painter, you are welcome to print out a finished template from the Internet and sign off on a piece of construction paper.
Of course, when you’re done drawing, you’ll need to cut it out with scissors.
Thereafter, the various facial features, such as eyes, noses and ears should be drawn with the pencil. For this purpose it is recommended that you take colorful colored paper in different colors.
After you cut out the facial features, you can already attach them to the facial contours.
Of course you can decorate the mask with various materials such as glitter, beads, stones, etc.
Finally, you should attach the string to the mask so that it does not fall off your face. For this purpose you should cut a small hole in each side and attach the string there.
