Halloween is coming up, which means that people of all ages are racking their brains to come up with clever costumes for the occasion! If your little ones are feeling crafty and want to be involved in creating their own costumes, these woodland masks are a wonderful kid-friendly project for an afternoon spent crafting. This project is especially great for teaching your kids some introductory sewing skills, as the masks require a combination of gluing, hand stitching and ironing.
This kid’s craft happens to be a part of our Craft School, so there is a full video tutorial associated with the project. Head to the woodland masks lesson to find our complete list of materials and tools that you will need. You should be able to find your materials at your local craft store! Be sure to pick out wool felt or nice wool blend felt because you will be ironing the masks. Ironing acrylic felt will only make it melt. Once you have gathered your materials, you can print out the PDF patterns for the woodland masks under the Patterns tab in the Craft School lesson. Each pattern also includes a diagram of how the mask will look with all the felt pieces assembled, so choose your felt colors based on these template pieces.
Watch our easy to follow video tutorial to craft your woodland masks! Feel free to adjust the size of the masks or eye holes to fit your child’s face as you go.
