Create the stencil for the DIY Halloween masks for kids
The first step is to download the printable on an A4 sheet of paper. To download, click the green button located at the page's top. Then print out the template of the mask.
Once you have printed the template, roughly cut out the mask from the template. Be careful not to cut the outline.
Cut the DIY Halloween bat mask
Place your roughly cut bat mask stencil on top of the black cardboard. Use glue to stick the paper onto the paper and wait for it to dry.
Once dry, carefully cut along the lines of the bat so that you can create a bat-shaped mask out of cardboard and paper. Don't forget to cut out the peephole as well.
Flip the the mask so that you could see the cardboard to the other side. Yours should look like the one from the image above. Good job! It's now a mask!
Attach the strings to the Halloween mask craft
Get a string or thread. You can also use an elastic string or something similar. Punch a hole in each of the sides of the bat mask.
Then tie one end of the string to the left hole.
Then tie another string to the right hole. And you have successfully made a bat mask!
Decorate it!: You could add googly eyes! This will make the mask look more striking.
