  • Rhinestones
  • Feather boa
  • Tulle
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Scissors


  • Start with an unfinished paper mache mask. For added interest when creating a lady's mask, select one that has cat-eye shaped cutouts. For a man's mask, you will want one that covers the forehead.

  • Paint the mask using a shiny, metallic paint or an acrylic paint.

  • If you plan on attaching the mask to a dowel, then paint it the same color as you do the mask.

  • Decorate the mask with colored feathers, ribbons, glitter, sequins, rhinestones, or a piece of feather boa.

  • If you want to create a veil to hide the lower half of your face, gather a half-yard of tulle, tie it off to hold the gather in place, and glue to the bottom inside of the mask.

  • Glue dowel to the back right-hand side of the mask, if you plan on using one. Otherwise, punch small holes on either side of the mask and thread a ribbon through to tie onto your head.
