Day of the Dead Mask

Day of the Dead Mask

As part of a theme week on South America we did two different types of masks. These were Mardi Gras and Day of the Dead. For those of you who don't know Day of the Dead is central and south American festival/holiday that focuses on remembering those who came before you. For more information click here.

  • Paper Plate
  • Markers
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Coloured Paper
  • Coloured Squares
  • Sequins


  1. Start off by sketching out where you want the eye holes and the shape of the skull. I have made mine quite simple as I needed to do a lot in a hurry.
  2. Cut out the eye holes.
  3. Using what materials you have decorate the mask.
  4. If you are unfamiliar with Day of the Dead style I have included some examples below as well as my finished mask.
