Hey, who says Halloween is just for kids? Well, maybe kids do, But some of us have never outgrown our love for costumes, parties and treats. Wearing a mask is a great way to get decked out for a party, especially if your skin is sensitive to the ingredients in heavy make-up and body paints. These Halloween Masks for Grown-Ups to Make are definitely not kid stuff!
Paper crafters will love these Creative Masks from Think Make Share. Starting with a basic template and paper crafting supplies, you can take this technique in just about any direction. Kids can make simplified versions of these masks, but for teens and adults, the sky’s the limit!
You have to check out the variety of 3-D Masks from Templates available from Wintercroft! You can purchase a download from this U.K. company to print and construct your own amazing masks. They have done all the engineering for you so you can get started with the making right away. Some of the options are animals, dinosaurs and mythic characters.
