When I’m in a rush to complete a project, which I often am, I love using craft supplies that save me time and make my life a little easier. Case in point, this Easy Skull Masquerade Mask. Spooky-cute and dripping with glitz, these are great for Halloween, New Year’s or any glam-goth event.
No glitter, no glue, no sewing, this comes together quickly and is super easy.
The use of glitter foam or paper gives me all the sparkle, while peel and stick craft felt holds it all together.
These little masks are great as a last minute costume piece, photo booth prop or even party favors for your guests. They are so easy and quick to make that you can craft several in very little time. Hand-cut or speed things up even more and do your cuts on your Cricut Maker.
This easy Skull Masquerade Mask is crafted with our Skull Trio Party Pattern. Grab your free copy from the Haunted Library. And, don’t forget to visit the introduction post to see what else you can do with these skellie faces.

Before You Get Started:
Get your free copy of this pattern from the Haunted Library.
If you are going to use a cutting machine, upload the pattern file to your design software. To cut by hand, print, cut out the pattern, and trace onto materials.
1. Cut one skull face from the glitter craft foam and cut one skull face from the peel & stick craft felt.
NOTE: When using the Gus face, be sure to flip or mirror one skull face or the eyes will not match up.
2. Peel backing from peel & stick craft felt, align glitter skull on top and gently press into place.
TIP: Super rushed? Lay the craft stick onto the sticky side of the felt in the position you desire before placing glitter skull on top and skip to step 4.
3. Secure the wavy craft stick to the skull using the paper fastener.
TIP: To make a hole in the stick it is best to use a drill. I’ve found that trying to force it with a punch awl only cracks the stick.
4. Optional: If you want to disguise the paper fastener, cut a small circle from the glitter foam (mine was about 3/8″) and adhere to fastener.
5. That’s it! Now you’re ready to party.
