How to Make a Mardi Gras Mask

Supplies for the Mardi Gras Mask Template:

  • Paper and pencil
  • Card stock
  • Glue
  • Stapler
  • Dowel
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Decorative items such as tissue paper, sequins, glitter, markers, paints
  • Wax paper

Instructions for Making Mardi Gras Masks:

  1. Either design and cut out your mask or use one of the templates in the slide show. If you opt to design your own mask, watch the video that accompanies this article to get some Mardi Gras mask ideas. Additionally, the video will give you ideas about how to deal with the half-mask templates so that you can make a whole mask. (Hint: You'll have to fold the template in half and cut it to create a whole Mardi Gras mask as the video instructs.)
  2. Fill your printer with card stock paper and print off one or more of the Mardi Gras mask templates.
  3. Cut the template out, leaving a long strip on one side. It should be about an inch to two-inches long. It's where you'll attach the mask to the stick/ dowel. The templates don't have that, so you'll have to draw it in.
  4. Decorate the mask. If you need ideas, click through the slide show to see Mardi Gras masks for inspiration or make up your own. That's part of the fun!
  5. Glue the mask to the stick, wrapping the 2-inch strip of paper around the dowel. You might also have to staple it in place.
  6. Decorate the stick with paint, ribbons or pipe cleaners.
