It's Mardi Gras time! The girls made their own fancy masks today... we'll add a few beads & we're all set to celebrate!
Supplies- White or Colored Construction Paper, Craft Sticks, Paint, Paint Brushes, Glue, Scissors, Sequence/Stickers/Feathers/Glitter/Etc. (For decorating)
3. Cut out small eye holes, as shown below.
6. Once the paint has dried a bit, go ahead & start jazzing up the mask with all the extras you've gathered. Fasten them with glue.
Here we glued a few colorful feathers to the upper left corner of the mask.
And a few sequence...
A few more down the mask's handle....
And then we finished with some glue around the eye holes sprinkled with glitter. (Shake off the excess of the garbage can.)
7. Allow a few hours to dry completely & you've got a Mardi Gras Mask!
So silly & definitely fun to play with.
The next picture is two days after we made our masks above... we went to Mardi Gras at our church & M1 created this mask. Much like the ones we had made but the actual mask was cut in a different (much cuter!) shape. Great idea to use a straw in place of the craft stick as well. You've got to have one of those things in your drawers!
