For this project, you will need…
PDF Superhero Mask Templates << Click link for FREE download
- White printer paper, 8.5 inches by 11 inches
- Craft felt sheets in blue, yellow and red
- Permanent marker
- Tape measure
- .25-inch metal eyelet kit
- .25-inch woven elastic
- Scotch™ Designer Student Scissors
- Scotch® Maximum Strength Adhesive
Note: Follow all Scotch™ Brand package instructions for proper surface cleaning and prep, adhesive strip placement and recommended weight claims.
Using a computer and printer, download and print the superhero mask template onto the printer paper. Using Scotch™ Designer Student Scissors, cut out the superhero mask, lightning bolt and star templates.
Trace the template of the superhero mask onto the blue craft felt sheet using the permanent marker. Cut along the traced lines using the designer student scissors. Repeat to trace a second mask.
Using the permanent marker and lightning bolt templates, trace 2 lightening bolts onto the yellow craft felt sheet. Cut along the traced lines using the designer student scissors. Arrange the lightning bolts on the top left and right of one of the superhero masks, and then adhere using Scotch® Maximum Strength Adhesive.
Using the permanent marker and scissors, use the star template to create a star from the red felt. Affix the star to the top center of the second superhero mask and adhere using maximum strength adhesive.
Using the scissors, carefully create a .25-inch hole on the left and right center edges of each mask. Following package instructions on the metal eyelet kit, set eyelets in each of the holes.
Cut 2 14-inch sections of the .25-inch woven elastic. Working with one mask at a time, thread one end of one of the elastic pieces through one of the eyelets, folding over .5 inches of elastic and securing with maximum strength adhesive. Repeat on the other side of the mask with the remaining elastic. Repeat this process with the remaining mask and elastic piece.
Voila–your superheroes are ready to save the world one piece of Halloween candy at a time!
