Get Creative: Make Your Own Costume Mask

Looking for a new way to show your creative personality? Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation staff has a fun and creative project you can make yourself.

Materials Needed:

  • Carboard Piece
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Markers

Now that you have all your materials ready, let's get started on your fashionable costume mask.

Step 1: With your black marker, draw your mask on your cardboard piece. Be creative! It can be an animal, person, cartoon - anything your imagination can create.
Step 2: Use your scissors to cut out the holes for the mouth and eyes.
Step 3: Next, cut out the shape of the mask and throw away the extra excess pieces.
Step 4: Poke holes in the sides of the mask to be able to tie the string to secure it to your head. Now you're ready to don your costume mask. Want to make more? Create costume masks for everyone in your family!
