I like Mod Podge. I have used it in the past for many different things. I have never done a craft with the kids using it though…until now. I had found these masks at Michaels for 2/$3.00. I had to think about how I wanted the kids to decorate them. I decided to buy some Halloween Scrapbooking paper. Which I found at the Target Dollar Spot. An 8 pack for $1.00! Can’t beat that! I cut some of this paper up into little squares.
I set everything out on the table and let them go to work. At first,they had a bit of a hard time working the mod podge and making the paper stay where it needed. After a few minutes they caught on and were having a good time! They actually covered more of the mask than I thought they would. So, all in all, it was a good project!
We set them aside to dry. The kids wanted the “teeth” painted white so we did that as well. I bought some elastic at Wal-Mart for $1.00. I used this to allow them to wear the mask. We poked holes on each side of the mask and hooked some elastic on it. Now they can wear them! I have a future use for these on my next Halloween creation that we are working on!
