I have included some links to the supplies for your convenience!


Handprint Mardi Gras Mask Supplies

Start out by tracing your hand on the back of a piece of card stock.  When tracing your second hand make sure you trace either the other hand or the reverse of the first so that you get hand prints facing opposite directions!

Cut them out with scissors!

Next you will glue them together, slightly overlapping so that the thumbs are on the bottom and angled to create a little nook for your nose on the mask.

Carefully cut out your eye holes!  I used a 3 inch center-to-center spacing.

For the stick or handle of the mask, I simply hot glued a paper straw on the back and it works perfectly!

To finish off the mask, you can add feathers, jewels, glitter or maybe even sequin ribbon.  Whatever you want to make your masks fantastic!
