How To: Batman Mask

For my son’s Lego Batman party, I made super hero capes and batman masks to go in the treat bags. They were able to wear these at the party and then take them home.

How to: DIY Batman MaskThese were so easy to make and really did not take too much time.

Step Two:

Lay out your craft foam – I used the large sheets from Jo Anns (2mm thick). You can find it in the kid’s craft section.

Trace your template pattern onto the foam. Cut it out.

Step Three:

Punch holes in either end of the mask. I used my Crop-A-Dile (affiliate link), but any hole punch will do.

Step Four:

Tie and knot your elastic to each end.

Sorry for the not so stellar photos on this tutorial. I was making these masks at night in my kitchen that does not have the greatest lighting!
