Here’s what you need for paper plate cow masks:
- paper plates
- free printables (nose & horns, ears, calf ears & nose)
- cardstock for the free printables
- paint sticks (thank you, Walmart!)
- black paint or a Sharpie
- craft sticks (like these)
- foam or felt sheets and ribbon for accessories
- glue stick or rubber cement
- hot glue gun
*NOTE: You’ll be working on the bottom of the plate.
PAPER PLATE COW MASKS:
Start by making the holes for the eyes. A spool of thread came in handy for me; I traced around it for my circle size, which was about 1.25 inches. You should do the calf eyes a tad bit smaller. TIP: Once you get one cut, you can simply place the paper plate on top of the next plate and trace.
Then, paint some black spots. Or, a Sharpie would work great, too. Using a glue stick or rubber cement, attach the ears and nose. Decorate it as you desire and hot glue the paint stick to the back of it. If you have little ones who don’t want to hold the paint stick, you can simply add some elastic string. Then it’s something they can just wear around their face and their hands can be free.
For the “Dad” cow:
I used the horns from the free printable, and I added a tie I cut from a felt sheet. (The tie was hot glued just at the knot directly onto the paint stick.)
For the “Mom” cow:
I cut a 1″ strip from black felt and fringed it for eyelashes. From your fringed strip, you can just cut an amount that looks right for the size of your eye. I hot glued it above the eye, then added a few dots of hot glue on top of that felt and pushed the eyelashes up some. Add a little blush and a bow and you’re set! Cute or what?!
For the “girl” cow:
I simply added a felt flower . . . all set!
For the “boy” cow:
I added little horns. You can take a normal size popsicle stick and break it in half, and they are perfect size for horns. My other accessory was a cute bow tie. I took a piece of cardstock about 4″ x 6″ and added diagonal stripes with a Sharpie and folded it back and forth, then added a knot. Ta-da, there’s a bow tie! Simply hot glue that to your paint stick.
So . . . go eat more chikin!! ???? And enjoy every minute of it!
