Today I’m excited to be joining a group of 16 bloggers who are also sharing a Halloween DIY or Craft project today!
Just a boring mask
I love crafting, sitting and making something. I rarely have time to do it these days so I’m so glad that Krista from The Happy Housie got a bunch of us bloggers together to share something fun for Halloween. I love having fun with Halloween decor. I have had this dollar store eye mask that my kids have ran around wearing when they were little and now it sits on pumpkins and skeletons and…it’s fun. But…it’s plain. I don’t do “plain” very well. I keep saying I’ll give it a makeover but I haven’t. Until now.
10-Minute Glam Halloween Masquerade Mask
-plain mask (try dollar store or party store)
-long feather or feather stem
-rhinestones of 1 or 2 sizes in preferred color (I used grey swarovski crystals with a flat back)
-hot glue gun
I found the cutest blush pink feather stems at Joanns this year so I bought a bunch of them to use throughout my decor. I cut off the stem, hot-glued it onto the back, and covered with black felt so that it didn’t scratch whatever or whomever it was on.
Use tweezers to grab each rhinestone and put a small dot of hot glue on the back and then place it wherever you want. You can do a LOT more rhinestones but I wanted to keep this at 10 minutes. Make sure not to put too much glue on the back of the rhinestones.
I then made a couple of loops with this lace ribbon I had and let the second one hang down like a tail. Pinch the neck of it (just below the two loops) and put a small 1-inch piece of ribbon around it with some hot glue to cover where you pinched it. Attach it right in front of the mask corner (where the feather sticks out) with a dab of hot glue.
Add a few more rhinestones on top of that cinched part to finish it off. That’s it!
Again, you can get much more elaborate BUT I wanted to keep it at 10 minutes and sometimes less is more. Did I just say that? Haha. I usually say “the more the merrier” but not in this case.
I placed my mask on this cute ceramic pumpkin stand I found at HomeGoods years ago but stay tuned to see who else will be wearing it…..hint, hint!
From drab to fab
I used this mask and pumpkin stand in the vignette on my buffet. Cute, right?! So much more glam than just a plain ‘ole black mask. I can’t believe it took me 3 years to get around to this little craft that took only 10 minutes.
