DIY Marvel Masks // Halloween With Hannah

I wanted to try and share more DIYs this year and I thought that these would be a really cute idea.
I have included three designs, one over sized, one adult sized and one child sized just so you can see the options you have when doing this either for Halloween or as a Halloween project.
I decided to use foam over felt as it's sturdier and I thought if anyone who teaches or is a childminder sees this, it's really affordable too. 

Spiderman Mask

You will need:

-A Spiderman Template (I found mine on Google)
-Red & Black Foam
-Foam Glue
-White Pencil
-Black Pen
-Ruler
-Scissors
-Elastic
-Stapler
-Hot Glue Gun (Optional)

Step One

Cut out the paper template including the eye holes. Then place it onto the red foam, trace around it using a white pencil and cut it out. You need two copies of the red foam mask.

Step Two

Going back to the template cut out the black framing around the eyes. Place it onto black foam, trace it and cut out. You'll only need one copy of this.

Step Three

Taking one of the red foam masks, which ever you feel looks the best, stick on the black eyes frames using the foam glue and set aside to dry.

Step Four

Measuring the elastic to the desired length with a little extra that will be stapled onto the mask. Go ahead and staple it where you like. The only problem I had was the staple sticking out because of the placement so I decided to cover the area with hot glue and smooth it out to prevent it catching/scratching.

Step Five

When the glue on the first mask is dry go ahead with a black pen and make the Spiderman markings. I used a ruler to get an as equal distance as possible but you can always free hand it.

Step Six

Stick the both parts together with the foam glue, making sure all sides face the right way and leave to dry.

Captain America Mask

You will need:

-A Captain America Template
-Blue & White Foam
-Foam Glue
-White Pencil
-Exacto-Knife
-Ruler
-Scissors
-Elastic
-Stapler
-Hot Glue Gun (Optional)

Step One

Cut out the template and eye holes, I actually cut straight across this template as I didn't want the sides to this mask.

Step Two

Very similar to the Spiderman Mask, make sure you trace and cut out two blue foam masks and that all the detailing is cut out on white foam. I actually used an exacto-knife to get the A out the template to trace as it was a little tricky.

Step Three

After you have all the pieces cut glue them in place on one blue foam mask.

Step Four

Cut the elastic to the desired length and attach to the other blue foam mask. I didn't have to use hot glue on this one as it stapled in well.

Step Five

Glue both masks together and you are done!

Iron Man Mask

You will need:

-A Iron Man Template
-Red & Yellow Foam
-Foam Glue
-White Pencil
-Exacto-Knife
-Ruler
-Scissors
-Elastic
-Stapler
-Hot Glue Gun (Optional) 

Step One

Cut out the template and then trace and cut out the mask on the red foam.

Step Two

Again very similar to the previous two masks make sure all the detailing is cut out on yellow foam, glue it to one of the masks and then cut the elastic to a desired length. Staple the elastic to the other foam mask and glue both pieces together.
And you have three Marvel Superhero Masks!

I really loved doing these and think my Godson is going to love receiving them ^.^

As always, thanks for reading...
