Now for today's Holiday Craftacular blogger, Becky!

Welcome back to the third day of our Holiday Craftacular! I'm Becky and I blog at The Dempster Logbook. I write from the heart for those who want real life encouragement. I also create DIY tutorials for people who love the idea of DIY and creating their own beautiful things, but don't own a garage full of fancy power tools. I left teaching to stay at home with my kids, help with the farm, and grow my blog. Today I'm so excited to share with you how I created this fairy mask for my oldest daughter, using leftover supplies in my craft closet! But up first is my feature pick from the Fall link up.

I'm excited to share with you these cute little gold and white pumpkins from Come Home From Comfort. She took items she already had on hand to create this updated look for fall. You'll want to head over and check out how she achieved this look over here.

Now for the directions to create your own fairy mask. {Remember, you can download my basic template and turn it into any mask your son or daughter may want!}

Create a fairy mask using these free mask templates and felt.  From The Dempster Logbook.

To create the mask you will need the following supplies:
  • Two Templates {see below}
  • Felt: one color for the main mask and a shade of green for the vines.
  • School glue
  • Water
  • Fabric Glue
  • Gold Glitter
  • Elastic Ribbon
First you will want to cut out the two templates below. Use the templates to trace and cut out your felt.

Next you will want to stiffen the mask. Mix equal parts of school glue and water in a plastic container. Put the felt mask in the mixture and cover completely.

After it is covered, remove the mask and squeeze out the excess. Lay flat to dry on parchment or wax paper. Allow to dry completely. (Takes about 3 hours. I left mine overnight.)

Once the mask is dry you can glue on the green vines using fabric glue.
The next step will be to smooth on a small layer of the fabric glue and sprinkle with glitter. Make sure the glue is a thin layer so it will dry clearly.

Once the fabric glue is dry cut a small slit on each side of the mask and thread your elastic ribbon through. Measure to make sure it is the right length of elastic to fit around your child's head. Tie at each end and you are done.

You could adapt the basic templates to create any mask for your child. I would love to hear what you make with the templates I've given you! Happy creating friends!
