Camouflaged Paintball Mask




Introduction: Camouflaged Paintball Mask

Things you will need:
1. Tape measure
2. Camouflaged yarn
3. Scissors
4. Paintball mask

Step 1: Cut the Yarn

Cut the yarn into 18 inch long strings

Step 2: Start Making the Ghillie

Start by passing the 18 inch cuts of yarn through each hole on the mask. It helps a lot to tie a knot at the end of each string to pass it through the holes. It took me 5 1/2 hours to complete this ghillie mask and don't forget to tie each strand at the half way mark in double knots

Step 3: Complete the Mask

5 1/2 hours later and im done. Please let me know what you think, thank you

    I tried to edit the picture like you said seamster but i keep getting an error code

    This is a great idea!

    A shot of the finished mask in the top spot of the intro might help you grab a few more looks. Just a thought. :)

    i did this to mine years ago. i had a camo hood on top that draped down the back of my neck with the long burlap strings on front along with some sections of fake plant leaves mixed in with it on the mask and the top half of my shirt. get a latch hook to make it easier and faster

    also if you use the stiffer burlap strings they hold up more to keep from bunching together, allow more air flow to help keep the lens from fogging, are cooler than yarn in summer, and don't pickup so many burrs.

    Looks like a really cool beard to me, but nice instructable either way.
