How-To Tuesday: No-Sew Mardi Gras Masks

It’s Fat Tuesday! Or, as I like to call it, Pleasantly Plump Post-Monday. If you didn’t manage to make it down to NOLA for the beads and bingeing, why not create your own Mardi Gras party at home? I make a new one every year using minimal materials and they always turn out pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself!masks

I’m a disaster with a sewing needle, so my modus operandi for crafty mask-making involves lots of colors and textures and not much prep work.

There’s tons of tutorials out there for making unique, vibrant masks without having to pick up a needle. Snap! even offers two free downloadable mask templates for you to get started. Then it’s simply a matter of choosing a fun pattern—and the best part? Since you’re using so little fabric, all you need is scrap.

Or go even simpler and more kid-friendly by decorating masks using colored paper, watercolors, glitter, stickers, markers, crayons—whatever combo you can dream up. mask-diyThere’s no limit to level of wild extravagance your mask can reach, because remember: No one’s going to know who you are under there!

What you need:
1.    Simple mask
2.    Scrap fabric and/or decorating materials
3.    Scissors and glue
4.    Dowel rod for holding (if your mask doesn’t come with a string fastener)
5.    A can-do party attitude
