I’ve shared my owl face paint idea for Just So 2017, now I’m handing over to creative genius Victoria for a super-easy, no-sew DIY owl mask…

Tweet Twoo! If you want to swoop in on your tree top friends, it would be wise (get it!) to gather as many feathers as you can shake a duster at and you are pretty much ready to fly.

This mask looks effective but is so easy to make. The mask I found was already dramatically shaped (its from Tiger stores), but if you can’t find one like this don’t flap as the tall feathers you stick on will create the same height effect.

As well as the mask and a heap of feathers (bought from Hobbycraft), you’ll also need a beak shape cut out of brown felt.

Instructions:

  1. Start by gluing feathers onto the outer corners. Think about height so the longest feathers should go where the ears would be, shorter tuftier feathers above the forehead.

  2. Glue some feathers across the tops of the eye holes to create an eyebrow effect. If you plan to wear the mask over your eyes, you may need to trim the feather edges so you can see, but I personally always wear my masks on my forehead because there are Gruffalos at Just So and I need to be on the look out.

  3. Glue your beak shape across the nose of the mask

  4. Add a few smaller feathers to the side of the nose. Know when to stop sticking on feathers otherwise you risk your owl morphing into Chewbacca.

If you’ve got some feathers left over, glue them around the neckline of a t shirt to create an owly collar. I’ve gone for browns and creams but all white feathers like a snowy owl looks dramatic contrasted with a black beak, or you may be able to find patterned feathers for a bit of a wacky owl breed.

    boring. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they
    create news titles to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
