Creepy Paper Mache Mask - Silent Hill Nurse

About: Being creative makes me feel so alive. I always follow where inspiration leads.

DIY - Halloween costume idea.

I love anything creepy and kind of a nerd too. :) I decided to make my own mask to complete this creepy nurse costume. (Silent Hill) I know, I know.....this costume needs a lot more blood and gore, but unfortunately I didn't have shirts to ruin at the moment. lol

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies!

  • Paper
  • Flour
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Balloon
  • Or you can make one by pressing some tin foil over your face to make a more defined mask
  • Craft supplies - paint and paint brush

Step 2: Let's Get Started!

  1. Make your glue mixture. Add flour, water and a little bit of salt in a bowl and whisk well. I never measure the quantity of the ingredients, I just kind of eye ball it. Watery consistency.
  2. Cut your paper in strips.
  3. I always cover my work area with newspapers or an old table cloth first. This can get very messy! beware.....
  4. Dip your paper strips in the glue mixture and cover your balloon or mask. Pretty easy, right?
  5. Make sure to allow the first coat to dry very well before applying a 2nd or 3rd paper layer.
  6. When you are satisfied with the thickness of your mask, you can now decorate! The fun part.
