The hero of today’s post is a paper masquerade mask with color feathers, pearls, diamonds and glitter. There was supposed to be one for a competition at school, but the younger daughter quickly found out that she wanted to do it too. The masks are easy to make and kids can make them themselves. A little help may only be needed with cutting out the eye holes.
You will need:
- Color thick paper – I used one of 270 dsm (g/m2).
- Colored feathers – I used them for the first time and they are really great 🙂
- Self-adhesive crystals and pearls – the large crystal in the center of the mask is great, so it’s worth buying.
- Glue glitter – I like glue glitter, because by using it I can avoid glitter squeezing into every corner of the house 😉
- Glue – necessary to stick feathers
- Mask Template – you can download our templates below.

I prepared 3 templates: a simple mask, a mask with a decoration on one side, a mask with a decoration in the middle. My girls chose the latter and it was great 😍
How to make a paper masquerade mask?
Making of the mask can be divided into 2 stages. The first one, which is usually the same for all paper masks types, is the preparation of a paper base. Print and cut out the template, then draw it on colored technical paper and cut it out again.
The second part is as creative as possible and every idea is a good one. We had color feathers at our disposal, so we focused on them. My girls did as follows:
- Glue the feathers to the center of the mask.
- Add a large crystal in the center.
- Decorate the area around the eyes with small crystals and pearls.
- Smear the glue glitter all over the mask.
Our masks are ready 🙂

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
