Needing a Last Minute DIY Costume Mask for your little one for Halloween? By using a Cricut template, this project is super quick and easy! This post contains affiliate links.
A few weeks ago, I shared how I had found three of my kids’ Halloween costumes on a great deal. Two of the costumes came with everything (mask, gloves, etc.), but one (the Captain America one) did not. And what is Captain America without a mask? My son just wanted a simple one, so I used a pattern that I made from Cricut Design Space to whip one up for him in no time!
- 1/4″ elastic in about a 12″ length
- Sewing machine or hand sewing needle
- Card stock
- Cricut Explore Air
- Cricut standard grip cutting mat
- Measuring tape
I printed this mask template onto card stock using my Cricut Explore Air and Cricut Design Space (Here is the link to my canvas.). While the Cricut Explore Air will cut fabric, I always like making a template or a pattern with card stock. I find that I often make repeat projects, and I had rather have the patterns on hand to pull out and use whenever. I cut the mask shape out on the card stock and then placed it on the felt.
Use the pencil to trace the outline onto the felt.
Cut out the mask.
Measure your kiddo’s head. Cut a piece of elastic just a tad shorter than the measurement. Sew one end of the elastic on each end of the mask.
This mask may not be the most heavy duty, but it will definitely serve the purpose of wearing over Halloween a few times. And, once you’ve cut the pattern out, it only takes a few minutes to make!
For the price that I paid for his costume ($4.50!!), it was definitely no trouble to make a mask with items that I already had around the house.
Are your kiddos ready for Halloween? What are they going to be this year?
Psst….need a costume shield? Here’s a quick tutorial for that, too!
