Raccoon Mask, Halloween Blog Bash and Creative Costume Hop

Raccoon mask olyfun

This raccoon mask for Halloween is made with Oly-Fun and is very easy to make. The mask is a part of two different events. Fairfield blog is participating in a Halloween Blog Bash and in a Creative Costume Hop.
October is the start of our busy season here at Fairfield. So many of our products go into making costumes for Halloween and then as soon as Halloween costume making and decorating is over we are into fall, autumn and harvest decorations which transition into Thanksgiving. Don’t worry we will have lots of decorating ideas for them too. And you know what come after Thanksgiving – High Season for handmade holiday gifts and decorating.

I hand drew my mask, you can find a printable version here.  You will need to customize it to the size your your child.

Supplies for Raccoon Mask from Oly-Fun:

  • Olyfun in slate, black, white and bubblegum
  • Sewing machine ( or you could hand sew it)
  • Needle, thread, pen and paper
  • Elastic cording
  • Eyelet and setter

I hand drew this one so it is a little different from the printable.

Trace the mask onto the oly-fun.  I used two layers so that it would be extra durable.  My pre-schooler is far from gentle.

Sew around the edges. Then cut out the opening for the eyes.

I hand drew the wispy eye accents and the white eye brows.  Sew both pieces on.  Cut the openings for the eyes.

raccoon eyes

 

Sew around the center of the eyes.  Cut out the white snout and the black nose.  Sew the pieces on the base mask. Then cut white triangular pieces for the insides of the ears.  Sew in place.  If you do not like to sew you would always glue the mask together.

The raccoon mask made from Oly-Fun can be used as a part of a Halloween costume  or a creative play costume that can be used everyday.  The raccoon mask is the 3rd mask I have made for my kids  in the past few weeks.  Be ready to see a few more woodland creatures lurking around.
