Fun With Felt

Let imaginations run wild with these cute felt Deer, Fox and Raccoon mask patterns.

Gather the materials you will need for this project.

Step 1:

Cut out all the shapes from the pattern. Pin your paper outlines to the appropriate colour felt and cut around.

Step 2:

Layer and glue the pieces of felt on top of one another. Using the picture reference as a guide.
 

Step 3:

To tie the mask, you will need to measure out approximately two 15” pieces of ribbon. Glue each piece (on the back side) near the edge of the mask, around where the middle of the eye cut outs are. Once all your glue has dried, try your new felt mask on! If the ribbon is too long after tying a bow, cut off any excess.
