Masquerade

Ah Halloween! You must have your costume all planned and ready to go. But for those of you who don't know who you'll be on fright night, may I suggest a little blah to Tada!?

Pieces of cardboard...what a blah.

Turn it into a mask for an instant Tada!

Here's a little trick: use a pair of sunnies to estimate the size of the mask. Trace with a pencil and cut, cut, cut away.

Jazz it up as you please -- with sequins and glitter!

Or what about some feathers?!

Make a few extras for friends who arrive at your party without a costume and then have a blast at your own masquerade ball!

  3. So so so so so so so so so so so soooooooo cute! I'm doing these with my kids for their costume bin and use up some dorky sunglasses we recently received :O) If I glue them right onto the glasses but get rid of the lenses, they won't have to hold onto anything to wear them!

  7. These are really lovely. Masquerade ball-esque things always remind me of my favourite scene in Labyrinth and I swoon thinking of David Bowie.

  8. This is a great idea! I love it! I have a 3 1/2 year old niece and this is her first real Trick or Treat Halloween, but she hates masks,but she loves sunnies, so I think I might make her a pair!
