  • How to make a masquerade. Labyrinth Masquerade Mask - Step 1
    Step 1

    You'll need lots of supplies and imagination to make this. Everything from tulle, feathers, bridal decor and something that you can use to press down with so you wont burn your hands on the hot glue.

    Step 2

    I started by covering the base of my mask qhich was originally all white with silver and gold glitter glue. Glitter glue usually takes 1-2 hours to dry, so I used a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.

    While I was waiting for the glitter glue to dry and before I read the label at how long it takes to dry, I hot glued a ribbon on the stick of my mask. If you don't have a stick don't worry about this, but its a lot more fun if you do.

    After my glitter glue was dry, I cut a piece of lace in the shape of a rectangle to cover my mask.

    I turned my mask around and used my hot glue gun to glue the lace down, pulling the lace taute and using the handle to my paint brush to press the lace down so I didn't burn my fingers. When I was finished I cut off the excess lace.

    I decided to leave the lace covering the eyes of the mask for a more modern twist, but you could cut small holes in the center and fold and glue the lace in back of your mask if you don't want that look.

    I added a cord around the outside edge. again using my paint brush to press down so I wouldn't burn my fingers. Safety is important!

    Next, I used my sewing machine to pleat a long piece of tulle and I once again hot glued that to the back of my mask using my brush.

    I used the same ribbon from the handle and a piece of lace and some pearls to hange from the handle.

    To do this, I tied my ribbon and lace once to the handle and hot glued in place. I then hot glued the pearls to the knot and tied another knot over it.

    I also had some pearls on clear wire that I wraped around the handle and hot glue down.
