How to make a paper plate pig mask (with template)
Once you’ve printed and cut out the pig mask templates, trace them onto the back of a paper plate. Line up the face part of the mask with the edge of your paper plate to trace, and trace the ears and nose on the flat part.
Using a cutting mat cut out the eyes of the mask with a utility knife.
Your pieces should look like this.
Now to assemble your mask. Start with the center slit. Slightly overlap the right side over the left and hot glue together. For the left slit, fold the right side over the left and hot glue together. For the right side slit, take the left side and fold it over the right side and hot glue together.
Now to add the ears. Fold the ears back (use the template to see where to fold), then fold slightly together so they’re somewhat curved. Hot glue each ear onto the mask.
It’s painting time! Paint the base of your mask 1 shade of pink, then the inside of the ears, cheeks and nose a different shade of pink. Finally paint 2 nostrils on the nose. You can also add eyelashes, or beauty marks, maybe even a ring around the eye. Whatever you want to do to add a little personality.
Hot glue the nose to your mask.
Finally, punch a hole on either side of the mask and thread through some elastic, string, or even pipe cleaner. You’re done! Wear with pride and don’t let any big bad wolves into your house!
Aren’t these DIY Pig Masks simply adorable? Perfect for any Farm Yard Play Activities, fun with 3 little pigs or even for Chinese New Year and the Year of the pig!
