Beaded Mardis Gras Mask

Designed by: Amy Law
Skill Level: Intermediate

Make a mask that can match your costume exactly-whetheryou're going to a Mardis Gras party, or any themed party-using our beads, tapeand thread on a purchased plastic mask. It won't take very long to do, and youcan create a custom look.

Materials needed:

  • plastic eye mask
  • Treasure Tape dots
  • sequins
  • Diamond Beadlets®
  • Treasure Tape, 8" x 10" sheet
  • shallow pan or tray
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in colors to match your theme (we used 1223 Purple)

Instructions:

1. For a more elaborate design, trace out a reverse pattern on the white backingof the Treasure Tape sheet (we drew swirls). Cut out.  Remove the whitebacking and lay the design on the mask.
2. Lay Treasure Tape dots randomly on the mask. Remove the red liner to exposethe sticky top, and lay a sequin on each. Lay the mask in a shallow pan or trayand cover any remaining sticky areas on the dots with Diamond Beadlets.
3. Remove the red liner from your larger tape areas, and begin decorating: addthread first, using the #12 Braid to outline the area or make other designs.Then add sequins if desired. When decorating is complete, cover remaining stickyareas with Diamond Beadlets.
