African Mask

What you need:
• Paper plate
• Hole punch
• Craft knife
• Pipe cleaners
• Colored pasta
• Newspapers
• White glue
• Poster paint
• Paint brush

What you do:
• Punch 6 to 8 holes around the top half portion of the paper plate.
• Draw and cut out a pair of eye holes.
• Take some strips of newspaper. Twist and form them into a mouth and nose shape.
• Use white glue to attach the newspaper nose and mouth to the paper plate.
• Let the glue dry for a few minutes.
• Paint your mask with brown poster paint.
• Use white paint to make designs on the mask.
• Cut pipe cleaners in half and attach each piece to a hole on the mask. Simply loop one end of the pipe cleaner around the hole and twist it to secure it in place.
• String colored pasta through each pipe cleaner. Seal the end by folding down the tip of the pipe cleaner.
• Once you’re finished, you’re ready to show off your African mask.

Attach an elastic band on the two lowermost holes to wear the mask or you may simply put up the mask on the wall.
