Tis the season for theme parties!
My work Christmas Party this year featured a masquerade theme where everyone was encouraged to come adorned in chic eye masks and cocktail wear. I’ve always loved lace decal and came across a lovely blog post that showed super easy step-by-step instructions on how to make a chic Venetian lace mask.
What you’ll need:
- Puffy fabric paint
- Mask template (below)
- Sheet of tulle
- Saran wrap
- Ribbon (optional)
You can find complete step-by-step instructions and mask template here or follow below:
- Print the mask template and tape down to a sturdy board. Tape a sheet of saran wrap over the template, then tape a sheet of tulle over the saran wrap.
- Using the fabric paint, trace over the detailing on the mask template.
- Allow the mask to dry overnight. Cut out the mask from tulle and saran (the blog post I read asked to separate the saran from the tulle, but mine was so stuck together I couldn’t do this. It worked find with the saran still attached too!).
- You can add a ribbon to the sides if desired to tie around your head.
Voila! Masquerade ready 🙂
