DIY Lace Masquerade Mask

Supplies Needed to Make a DIY Masquerade Mask: 

colored glitter and metallic hot glue gun sticks

Wait just a second…COLORED hot glue?! Yes, indeed! If you haven’t used colored (or glitter!) hot glue sticks yet, you’re missing out on a ton of awesome crafting possibilities!

To begin making the masquerade mask, start by cutting a piece of lace that is slightly larger than the mask template. Plug in the hot glue gun to warm up, and insert a black glue stick into the glue gun.

On your work surface, layer the mask template, parchment paper, and lace in that order. I taped all of my pieces down so that they wouldn’t shift around, but this step is optional and not completely necessary. Use the hot glue gun to outline the basic shape of the mask. Allow the glue to dry for 2 minutes.

Add a second layer of glue to bulk up the outline if needed, and then add the additional swirls and details.

Totally cool, right?! I think it would also be really fun to make more of these in all kinds of different color combinations to match the different colors of hot glue sticks. I’m sure my niece would love a neon pink and purple lace masquerade mask of her own!
