DIY Masquerade Mask

Good Morning!

Do you remember the masks that my friend Tory and I wore at our Masquerade Birthday? Well, we crafted those little darlings ourselves…with some help from the dollar store and Pinterest.  I liken the pairing of the dollar store and Pinterest to Edward and Vivian in Pretty Woman. One may seem a little more high-class than the other, but in reality they are equally awesome and much better together than apart. (Yes, I love that movie) But I digress. Today I’m giving you a brief little overview of what we did for these masks.  I’ll start with the golden lacey number that Tory wore.

DIY  Tory mask Tory made one change from the instructions and used gold glitter glue instead of fabric puffy paint.  We couldn’t find puffy paint anywhere downtown so we tried the glitter glue which looked great but took a LONG time to dry.  So if you use it, do the mask a couple of days in advance.

For my mask, you need: a plain mask base (I got mine at It’s my Party on the Danforth), feathers (regular and peacock), small plastic jewels with one flat side, a glue gun and some small gauge wire (all from the dollar store).  All I did was glue a pattern of pearly and blue stone jewels to the base mask, put the feathers into small groups and wrap a wire around them to keep them sturdy, glue the feathers to the back side of the mask and it was done!

 Holy plumage Batman!

These were very fun to make, so much so that I want to have another party so I can make a different one!

Have a great day!
