Your child will look adorable, you won't spend a dime, and the environment will be thankful that you reused those cardboard and fabric scraps. Read on for simple directions on how to make your own recycled owl mask.
Step 1: Gather the Supplies
- craft knife
- hot glue and gun
- fabric scraps
Step 2: Get Creative
The fun part about this project is that your children can get as creative as they like. There isn’t a template, so it gives them creative freedom to create a cat or owl the way they see it. Cut a piece of cardboard to fit the size of your child’s face, mark where the eye holes will need to be made. (I used an empty cereal box).
Step 3: Cut out the Design
Cut out the mask shape and use your craft knife to cut out the eye holes — you can layer the cardboard to make the mask more three-dimensional.
Step 4: Choose the Fabrics
Decide what fabrics you want to use for the animal’s fur. I used a combination of plain recycled fleece and other patterned fabric remnants. Then start to add it piece by piece to the mask cut out.
