DIY: Marvel Paper Masks

DIY: Marvel Paper Masks
April 30, 2015


I recently joined the newest chapter of Geek Girl Brunch in Los Angeles

 We are having our second brunch this Saturday, and it's a Marvel theme.  With Avengers Age of Ultron releasing in the U.S. on Friday it's a fitting theme.  I had made masks like these for my Avengers themed birthday party a couple years ago.  I decided to make some for everyone at the brunch. I included a few Spider-Man and Wolverine masks, too.

I found the templates on these two blogs, Tessie Fay and Sunshine and Summer Breeze (discovered on Pinterest, of course). They had been made out of felt and sewn, but I chose to go a different route, and made them from paper and glued wooden sticks to them.

The easiest to make were the Spiderman because I just printed the template on red cardstock and cut them out.

Captain America was probably the most time consuming because of cutting the wings and the "A" for each of the masks.

I drew the lines on the helmets of the Thor masks freehand so they aren't symmetrical in the least.

Here are the others.

For the Hulk mask, the template had a section for the hair and eyebrows which I had considered tracing and cutting out of black paper, but ironically, cutting a bunch of tiny pieces of yarn (I had cheap black craft yarn on hand) and hot gluing it to the mask was much faster and quite quick.

I made 3 Spiderman masks (1 is a different style than what is shown above), 4 Wolverine and 5 or 6 of the others since those are in the Avengers: Age of Ultron film.

TTFN,
