Woodland Creatures Felt Masks

Woodland Creatures Felt Masks

A friend of mine started a fun little craft exchange on Insta! Everyone who signed up got partnered with another family to send a fall-themed craft project to do with their kiddos. We decided to do woodland creatures felt masks. I wanted it to be something the kids could hopefully get a lot of usage out of after the craft was finished! Craft projects were my LIFE when I was a little kid (and arguably still is my favorite pastime). So I am stoked to be apart of this little online community. It's like being pen pals! But with crafts!!

This craft is a little above my kid's pay-grade, so I did all the cutting beforehand and had them "build" the masks with me (aka look at the picture and try to solve the puzzle and then I glued it while they watched). It was the perfect length of time for two busy boys to sit and do a craft project with a very quick (and high) payoff. 

Want to do it yourself? I put together a DIY for you to follow with templates!!

Materials:

Steps

  1. Cut out stencils
  2. Trace stencils onto felt
  3. Arrange pieces correctly onto mask
  4. Use spray adhesive to glue down all pieces (I put down a piece of foil because it oversprays quite a bit and gets everywhere)
  5. Add top stitching if desired
  6. Measure elastic band to fit child's head, cut, and sew
  7. Playtime!
