DIY: Easy Feather & Glitter Mask

I have a serious love affair with Halloween costumes (and Halloween in general) and I take the opportunity every year to toil away over a handmade costume that outdoes the previous year's look. While I do have a full blown costume waiting in the wings, I also made a simple feather and glitter mask for another Halloween event. I had the pleasure of attending the Hallowedding (Halloween themed wedding) of one of my dearest ol' pals recently so I whipped up this festive face costume (that's now what I'm calling masks I guess). 

What You Need
Mask
Glitter
Feathers
Metallic Gold Paint
Painter's Tape
Mod Podge
Sequins
Glue (I used E-6000)
Paintbrush

How To Make It
Tape off the bottom section of the mask with painter's tape. I went with a pointed beak-like shape.

Paint the bottom section until opaque. Mine took 3 coats. 
Peel off the tape carefully.
Apply a coat of Mod Podge over the top (unpainted) section of the mask. Sprinkle glitter on top and shake off excess.

 Coat the glitter with another layer of Mod Podge to seal it in. Add whatever embellishments you'd like. I used peacock feathers and individual sequins to jazz it up.



What are you wearing for Halloween?
