DIY costume mask tutorial
Materials: a piece of tulle, a sheet of paper, a clear plastic pocket or any other plastic film, a 3D liner pen in any color you want (It could be usually found in the craft shop by the fabric painting supplies), a tape, scissors and glue.
First, draw the basic shape of the mask on a sheet of paper or print out a ready template. Place the sheet of paper in the plastic pocket and lay over the piece of tulle. Glue the sides to prevent sliding off. Then take the 3D liner pen and start drawing on the tulle fabric. An elegant design filled with all kinds of twirls and curves would look dramatic and feminine. You can also play with patterns and forms to craft a mask that would be also suitable for a man.
As long as the liner is still wet, you can decorate the DIY costume mask by inserting beads and gems for decoration. Leave the mask to dry completely for a few hours or overnight. Then peel off the tape and cut away the excess tulle. Do not forget to cut the holes for the eyes.
Now cut a piece of ribbon long enough to glue them on each side, so that you could tie the mask around your head. So, and we are already ready for masquerade!
