This project was inspired by the confetti-fringe-streamer trend, and my need for fun + affordable Halloween options. An owl mask, made from a paper bag and streamers! It’s a favorite around our house this year.
Plus, it’s an easy costume for for kids or adults. With the eyes having cut-outs to see through (safety first!), and worn over simple everyday clothes, the mask is a great option for school parties, the office, or other events where full costume attire might be too much.
Use the fringed streamer + paper bag concept for any animal mask you might want to make (you’re not limited to an owl). Simply find a face template online and start cutting streamers! Be sure to lay out all the pieces before you start gluing to ensure the face has correct proportions. I used hot glue on the top line of each streamer to put the mask together quickly, and added the face details at the end.
