This is my first instructable so bare with me please. Ill do my best to explain each step carefully and I hope this gives some people ideas or inspiration for other things.

Step 1: Get some Materials.

For this Mask I simply used things i actually had around the house.

- Sheet of Bristol Board (Or cardstock)
- Yellow construction paper
- Duct Tape
- Scissors
- Burlap (I have a whole bunch of this stuff that ive been using over and over for decorating during Halloween, Lots of people use it to cover up trees in the winter, Have a look around, shouldnt be difficult to get some)
- Hot Glue gun
-Thumb Tacks

Read through the instructable. Maybe you can substitute something for something else you might find better.
<p>Made this last night with minimum items. Used scrap wood for teeth. Thank you for this one. I got a HUGE amount or compliments. worked perfect with a a bloody shirt and a chainsaw. </p>
can't see details very well, but I made more of a ghost/ghoul mask. I'll probably keep it for next year, and make s full costume.
Thanks for the inspiration
I'm going to try making this tomorrow!
<p>How well can you see out of the mask?</p>
<p>I made one and it's really easy to see out of</p>
<p>I made it using your instructions as inspiration. I decided to leave the face blank I thought it looked a little creepier. Also for the bottom jaw instead of thumb tacks I used strips of elastic. They held the bottom against my jaw as I talked better. Very cool instructable though, it was just what I was looking for and I can't wait to scare my nephews. </p>
<p>Sick! How awesome is this? That thing gives me the creeps. Scarecrows and clowns, nothing good ever comes from jt. LOL Great Job!!!!</p>
wonderful tutorial helped me a lot making my own mask thanks for the help
<p>Very cool !! Could I ask you what the black things are ? Looks like a gas mask type apparatus . What did you use as the form for the face ? timlong466@gmail.com if you care to let me know . That looks awesome !! </p>
<p>Was hoping to see someone do an Arkhamn Scarecrow with this, nice job.</p>
<p>I always wanted to do one of these when I was a kid, might make one if I can get my hands on the burlap. But I'll probably make the mask out of foam rather than paper project for next year. </p>
<p>Thanks for the great Idea, Scared the kids as they came in the yard for our party. It was Dark with a little light and a fog misting across the ground.</p>
I would like to add the photo does not do the mask justice, it looks much better in a bigger photo!! :)
Thank you for the tutorial. Mine isn't as good as yours but it definitely had the wow factor. Without your info I wouldn't have known where to start! Thanks ?
<p>What a Brilliant idea </p>
<p>Thanks for the awesome intructable!!!<br>Here is the one that i made, i put some eyebrows on it and elongate the forehead a bit.. :)</p>
I love the eyebrows! that was a good idea!
<p>I think eyeless and noseless makes it more creepy.</p>
<p>I'm definitely loving the design and the simplicity of it, I'm going to take a crack at it very soon and maybe I'll share the results.</p>
<p>Needed a last minute costume (week and a half before Halloween), and you saved the day! The fit was difficult, so I didn't get much jaw movement... but I DID get second place in a local contest with about 12 hours of work!</p><p>Only mods to the design were cosmetic, and I made some spoooOky gloves with yours and another user's suggestions. I also had enough fabric (2 yards to start with) to make the hat, and a sweet pair of boots that might see some use later on.</p><p>I threw some birch branches together in a cross, cut holes through the elbows of an extra large shirt, and threaded the branches through (with burlap covering the holes); then hot glued twine around the wrists and where they met on the sticks when extended to give the illusion that they were tied in place. I tried looking for shoulder pads for underneath, but with time constraints had to settle for hockey goalie pants cut through the middle to stick my head through.</p>
<p>Still working on it but thanks for the inspiration!</p>
<p>can you see though the eyes?</p>
Yeah the burlap is quite see through. I only put one layer over the eyes. Two on the rest of the face
<p>final product, inspired by yours</p>
<p>i ment with the buttons on the eyes of jimmyb0nzs' mask. I've made one too. I posted it on in the comments</p>
<p>I made the material for the eyes a little different. Had to unweave a few strands of string from the material to open the spaces in between to see better. There's a lot of room around the buttons to see thru and i positioned my eyes just under the button.</p>
Love seeing all the different takes on this! Glad people are using the instructable still :) thanks for the positive vibes people! Keep up the creepy work!!
<p>Is anyone else creeped out by the 'orb' in the finished pic?? lol What?????</p>
<p>Lol, light reflection in the camera</p>
<p>Didn't have the photo's of the party yet.. put some fake blood on it.</p><p>Still.. I put some extra stitches everywhere.. for a more spooky effect.. Covered it with dirt a couple of times. And at the party added some fake blood at the mouth and eyes xD. Hope you like it</p>
<p>Super great and creepy!</p>
<p>Love this!</p>
Thanks for the inspiration! My son helped me make his mask, here he is modelling it the night before Halloween: <br>
Loved this instruction. I made myself a hat too. Thanks again!
Thanks for the instruction ! <br> <br>Here is my type of the Scarecrow <br> <br>http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FCJ/HNHM/HNE3ZIFJ/FCJHNHMHNE3ZIFJ.SQUARE.jpg
Awesome dude! really cool! now all you gotta do is just sit in a chair with a bowl of candy real still, then when the kids grab their candy start moving and freak them out! :D
a guy did that to me when i was about 4 or 5 years old and scared me so badly i ran to the street and wouldn't go back onto the porch until my mom practically dragged me there! now i can do the same to other kids! =)
Dude, that's awesome!
Nicely done.
Thanks for sharing your technique! Here is what I came up with: <br>http://www.flickr.com/photos/gfoster67/9514553132/
I finally know what to do for Halloween!! Thank you!
Thank you so much for your well done instructable. I was able to reproduce it quite easily with a minimum number of hot-glue burns! It was quite a hit, and I accessorized it with a pair of gloves; fingers extended with cardboard, and covered in the remaining burlap. Also added a bit of straw sticking out here and there. <br> <br>You did a great job with the initial construction, as well as the documentation. A job well done. Thank you again. BTW, I did manage to scare some co-workers into a minor loss of bladder control! Very satisfying!
its really good...its too late...i dnt hv such ideas about what to wear...i shud try this one..perhaps... <br>
nice! I plan on making one!
my dad loved it
dude thats pretty sketchy
I have a good idea for teeth; i used it this method for a mummy mask. I looked at the shape of my teeth and drew them life size on a piece of paper, then filled the drawings with hot glue, then cut out the shape, and glued them in my mask...
