The DIY Halloween Mask How-to:


Step 1: Choose your mask

There were many options of masks to chose from ones with outline and pre-drawn faces to colorful masks to cover the eyes.


Step 2: Choose your accessories

In this case, this mask was made to have goodies glued to it. By setting up the feathers and gems near it one could better design their mask.


Step 3: Glue it

Hot-glue guns provided an excellent adhesive that will help the mask last through Halloween. Just don’t get burned!


Step 4: Wear it!

Pretty self explanatory.
