DIY Halloween Masks for Kids

by Staff

Halloween is an opportunity for your children to make an impression, to be admired by their peers, and be marveled at by strangers at their front door. Whether it’s about getting a good scare or embodying a favorite person or character, Halloween is a time for fun and creativity. So while every other kid on your street may opt for the latest Disney or Pixar character, this is a chance to go against the grain and do something way cooler.

What better way to create an original costume than to make it yourself?  For that, we turned to Megan Avery of M. Avery Designs Sewing Studio, where she teaches youngsters and adults alike how to design and sew their own clothes, bags, and even Halloween costumes. She was kind enough to design and craft some great DIY Halloween masks that are easy and fun to put together. Whether your child wants to take the helm or you’re looking for a project to work on together, these masks are the perfect solution to beat the Halloween costume monotony.
