October is a month for making masks! Here are a few ideas to get you started ....
Allison on Momspark has a great tutorial on how to make animal masks with felt. While the example is a raccoon, she tells you how to customize to your own animal. See the instructions here.
If you're celebrating Dia de los Muertos at the end of this month, Kourtney Moon has a crocheted sugar skull mask here that you can add your own designs to. This one has an added benefit if your Halloween weather is icy!
Tara Miller has a pattern for the simple type of eye masks that often work well for toddlers. Her example here is a cat - change out the ears and you can easily come up with other animals.
Finally, if you're feeling really adventurous this year, Whitney Panetta's high school lesson plan on leather masks might just be for you! I've always been fascinated with leather masks and these instructions look very doable. Instructions are here.
Happy Creating! Deborah
