Whether your mask is silly or scary, no one will have a Halloween costume quite like yours.

What You'll Need

Paper plates


Blunt scissors



Trims such as ribbon

Pipe cleaners


Hole punch

Craft glue

Old sunglasses

Cut a paper plate in half. Hold the plate half up to your face and mark the position of your eyes. Cut out two holes for your eyes.

Decorate the mask to look like an animal, a monster, or a fancy party mask. You can even trim the plate half into the shape of a cat or dog.

Draw the features on the mask, and glue on trims such as yarn for hair. Punch a hole on each side of the mask. Cut two pieces of ribbon to tie the mask on.

Another idea is to glue the mask to a pair of old sunglasses without lenses.
