DIY Halloween Mask (& Enter To Win The One We Made!)

Even though we all outgrow Halloween in its traditional sense (dressing up in costume and trick-or-treating) at a certain point, it’s still fun to get into the spirit of this bewitching holiday. I love the darker side it brings out, and it’s still fun to experiment with a different look or intriguing makeup for Halloween parties.  I love the idea of wearing a beautiful dress to a Halloween party and pairing it with eye-catching makeup or a gorgeous handmade mask, and that’s where the idea for this DIY was born.  I’m so happy with how this mask turned out, and how it looks so much more expensive than it really is! Read on to learn how to make it (and win it for yourself!).

What you need: A plain mask to use as your base, a toilet paper roll, iridescent beads (in the color of your choice! I used a pearly white color), a hot glue gun, and white paint.

The purpose of the toilet paper roll is to make the mask a bit more unique, and it couldn’t have worked more perfectly.  I unraveled the cardboard roll and used one of the curved edges, which lined up almost perfectly on the mask. Use a pencil to trace a line where you want the cardboard to meet the mask, and cut about an inch below that line.  Use hot glue to attach the cardboard to the inside of the mask!

I painted the cardboard white so that the brown color wouldn’t show through when I added the beads.

Use the hot glue gun to adhere the beads onto the mask.  This is the most tedious part, but it still didn’t take more than an hour tops.  Give your mask an hour or so to fully dry and it’s ready to wear!

The mask almost looks like it was made to be worn with the Witchy Woman Maxi Dress and some delicate jewelry.
