Some masks for your Saturday.


I don’t have anything particularly clever to say today – my brainbox is all filled up with making a birthday present for a friend, so you’re getting projects from the archives.

These are nearly all stiffened felt with bead embroidery and assorted stuff, except for the gold goblin, which is papier mache and pokey, pokey sticks.  I don’t advise wearing that one if you want to stand next to anyone without them losing an eye.


This is the second mask I ever made from scratch, not counting paper plates.  It’s super old and hard to see out of and a little itchy and still might be my favorite.  Also, the glitter effect was created by rubbing glitter makeup into the felt, and I am not yet ready to admit how old I was and that I still owned glitter makeup, although in my defense, I think I bought it for Halloween.  Or possibly a Tuesday.
