Make this gorgeous owl mask with your kids this weekend, by Riot Art & Craft.

You will need:

  • Paper plates
  • Light blue tissue paper
  • White & gold glitter foam sheets
  • Blue glitter scrapbook paper
  • Large gold flat sequins
  • Scissors
  • PVA glue
  • White elastic
  • Stapler
  • Circular template, such as a bottle lid- approx 3cm diameter

Step 1. Template

Hold the plate up to your face and work out where the eyes need to be.  Draw a dot with a pencil, and then using a circular template (such as the lid of a bottle) draw circles around these. Carefully cut the eyes out.

Step 2. Eyes

Double over your white foam and cut out a large teardrop – use the same template to cut out the eyes. Place these over the eye holes, and use as a guide to cut off the bottom of the plate, following the outline of the foam.  Cut out a circular part at the top too.

Step 3.  Decorate

Before you glue the foam down, cut out around 25 small scalloped crepe pieces (make sure they’re double layered by folding it over) and then paint a very thin layer of PVA and place these around inner circle of the plate to create a feathered edge.  Leave the remaining rim of the plate exposed.

Next slot in your sequins behind the feathered edge.  Now glue on your foam teardrops, add extra scalloped feathers if there are any exposed areas. Scrunch up your crepe squares, and glue these between the foam tear drops. Finally cut out two round circles for the eyes, once again using your circular template, and finally a beak. Once dry, staple a piece of elastic to either side, and it’s ready to wear.
