So the trick or treaters are out and about but us older folk still have a few more hours before we head out for a night on the town. Here’s an easy-peasy Halloween mask for all those still hunting for a last-minute costume, inspired by the film Where the Wild Things Are, and our Spins & Needles event last Thursday.
So here we go…
Craft foam: white, yellow, orange, brown
Black permanent marker
Popsicle sticks/barbecue skewers
White glue/glue gun
1. Cut out a half-moon of black or brown felt, slightly larger than the top of your plate. Glue to the back of the paper plate. Cut felt in strips to mimic hair.
2. Cut out two horns from white foam, two eyes from yellow foam, pupils from black felt and white foam, nose from orange foam, and triangle teeth from brown foam. Glue to top of paper plate for the face.
3. Cut out strands of black/brown hair and glue to top of head and bottom of head. Use shorter pieces at the top and longer pieces at the bottom.
4. Using the permanent marker, outline the eyes, nose, and mouth, and lines under the eyes, the cheeks and nose (as shown in the photo).
5. Attach popsicle stick or skewers to the back of the plate using glue or tape.
Now put on your fuzziest-looking outfit and head out for a night on the town, Halloween style and show them you’re a wild thing!
Trick or treat!
