This post is a sponsored collaboration with JOANN. All ideas and opinions are my own.
When I first realized JOANN carried glow-in-the-dark tulle, my mind began racing with ideas. Think of the possibilities! Jellyfish costumes, fancy tutus, ghost decorations, ect. I finally decided on diy masquerade masks, because I knew it would be really easy for anyone to make, and the fact that it already glows makes it that much cooler.
I love that the tulle allows your face to elegantly show through the mask. It’s also lightweight. As a result, all you need is a little elmers glue or false eyelash glue to adhere it gently to your temples. No ties or uncomfortable elastic bands needed!
Supplies for DIY Masquerade Masks:
–glow in the dark tulle
–scissors or Cricut Maker Machine (that’s the one I have, and I personally think it’s the prettiest color)
–glitter hot glue sticks
–flat back rhinestones
-false eyelash glue or Elmer’s Glue
I used my Cricut Maker to cut out my masks, but you can also do it by hand by downloading the template below. (Click on image to enlarge, then download and save. After, you can print it, and cut it out to use as a stencil.) Cricut Design Space includes a couple of mask images that a very similar to the one below. You can also upload the image below into Design Space if you want that exact shape.
If you want to get a little fancier, I recommend picking up some glitter glue sticks and having some fun. Make sure to place a piece of wax paper under the mask, or you risk gluing it to whatever surface you are working on. The last thing you want is to have a bunch of ripped paper stuck to your mask.
I’m not the best artist, so mine turned out okay. But I bet some of you could make beautiful masks using a hot glue gun! I like how it ended up looking wing like.
Now for the fanciest version.
I actually broke apart an old necklace to get the stones out, but it’s probably better just to pick some of these up at JOANN–especially because they are flat on the back and that will help them lay smoother.
I used tacky glue to get them to adhere to the front. After a couple of minutes, I gently flipped it over and used hot glue to adhere it to the back for a more secure hold. And done!
I really love how feminine the diamonds look laid against the tulle fabric.
