If I say, “Picture making your own Halloween mask!” you might think of those flimsy old-school cutouts on the back of cereal boxes. You know, something pathetic like this:
Well, dust off your scissors, because here are some DIY masks that are far more sophisticated.
UK designer Steve Wintercroft has created templates that allow you to make your own beautifully spooky 3-D mask. You use his pattern to assemble the mask and then personalize it with the colors of your choosing.
The templates are sold (for less than $8 each) at Wintercroft’s Etsy shop. Upon purchase, you download a PDF, print it out, and then use the pattern on any foldable paper-based material–for example, recycled cardboard, card stock…
Or even an old cereal box.
