This mask is incredible cheap and easy to make for all ages. If I had more time I might have made a fancier one out of papier mache, but this paper mask works as a quick alternative when you are pressed for time, or want to have a Halloween/Day of the Dead project to work with kids.
The hardest part was drawing a proportional skull, but I've provided a cut-out of my original (that I widened to fit better), so all you have to do is print it out to start!
Step 1: Supplies
Printed Calavera Cut-out
Step 2: Color Your Calavera
Step 4: Attach Rubberbands
1. Cut a thin strip of paper and it over about four times until it is about one inch long. Punch a hole in one end of it. Glue the layers together and then glue the strip onto the edge of the mask to the sides of the eye sockets with the hole sticking out.
2. Repeat this for the other side of the mask.
3. Cut a large rubberband in half and tie each end to the holes in the strips.
4. Wear and enjoy!
