Make head shape

Outline a basic head shape (with ears and horns, if you want) on poster board, making sure it's big enough to cover your own face. Cut it out.

Mark eyes

Hold the mask up to your face and mark where your eyes are. (You may need help with this.) Put the mask down and cut out the eyes.

Make features

For features such as a nose, cut out the overall shape from a piece of colored paper. Then fold the paper and cut slits or scalloped edges. Open your paper and glue it to the mask. (You may need to experiment to get the shapes you like.)

Make more features

For features such as a nose, cut out the overall shape from a piece of colored paper. Then fold the paper and cut slits or scalloped edges. Open your paper and glue it to the mask. (You may need to experiment to get the shapes you like.)

Add handle

Flatten the tube and glue construction paper around it - or paint it instead. Then glue the tube to the back of the mask, leaving a few inches at the bottom for a handle.
