DIY: Masquerade Mask

I’m not a fan of spending tons of money for a Halloween costume, and it honestly seems pointless, I decided to “DIY” my costume. So I decided to do something simple and make a masquerade mask.

Like the colors from my previous post about my nail art, I used a tan/gold-ish color for the bask and hints of purple.

This is what I used to make my make my mask and it all come out to $10.45.

You can find all of these supplies at your local Michaels craft store:

  • A mask
  • All purpose tacky glue
  • Scissors
  • Pearls
  • Feathers
  • Ribbon
  • Textured felt

The eye holes in the mask are round and I have almond shaped eyes, so the first thing I did make the eye holes fit my shape. Plus, it made a better opening for my eye makeup to stand out.

Luckily I have a roommate that’s an artist and she traced what would be good for my eye shape on the mask.

Next, I took a box cutter and cut over the tracing.

Trace the mask over the felt and cut it out and glue it on the mask.

Take the ribbon and line the top of the mask.

Glue the pearls on top of the ribbon.

Finally, take the feathers and glue it to one eye. I chose to put it on my right eye because my hair is parted to the left and I didn’t want to the feathers to block my part. Make sure to cut the base of the feathers to fit your eye. And there you have it!
