How to Make Silly Paper Masks

What you need:

  • scissors
  • stretch yarn
  • toothpick

Step by Step Instructions

Print out our templates provided at the end of this post.

You can use the color versions or the black and white ones and then color them with colors of your choice.

Cut out the mask shapes.

Step 001


You can make a small hole before continuing with scissors to help yourself with cutting the holes out.

Step 002


Using your scissors, make holes for the eyes where marked.

Step 003



Cut them out nicely. 

Step 003-1


Do this with all the masks if you’re making more of them at the same time.

Step 003-2


Take the toothpick and make holes through the black dots on each side.

Step 004


Thread some stretch yarn through one hole (start from the back side of the mask) and make a firm knot. 

Step 005


Measure around your head so you know what length you need the yarn to be, then cut it out.

Step 006


Thread the other stretch yarn’s end through the second hole and tie a firm knot.

Step 006-1


Done! This wasn’t a demanding project, right?
