How to Make a Day of the Dead Mask

Hang your Day of the Dead Mask on the wall as part of your Halloween decor, or attach an elastic band and use it to transform yourself into a spooky sugar skull for the night! However you decide to use your Day of the Dead Mask, you will definitely have fun decorating it with dainty designs.
  • 1 Paint mask

    Paint the entire mask with one color acrylic paint. Let dry completely.

  • 2 Draw designs

    Using a pencil, lightly draw your designs onto the mask.

  • 3 Paint designs

    Use assorted colors of Scribbles paint to outline the designs. For larger areas like the mouth or eyes, outline and use a small paint brush to fill the area with paint. Let dry completely.

  • 4 Apply acrylic paint

    Apply a final coat of acrylic paint to larger areas such as the teeth, or use it to create petals around the eyes.
