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 animal 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.
We’re quite fawnd of these masks
You should be able to find the materials for these woodland animal masks 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 below. 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.
- Wool Blend Felt in colors of your choice
- Embroidery Floss
- Embroidery Needle
- Fusible Bonding
- Tacky Glue
- Elastic Cording
