DIY Grumpy Cat Mask


Looking for a last minute Halloween costume? Dress up as everyone's favourite meme this Halloween! Make this no-sew grumpy cat mask using only felt, glue, and elastic. Click through for the full instructions and free printable.





Supplies: black, brown, white, beige, blue, and pink felt, elastic, craft glue, scissors, free grumpy cat template, chalk (optional)
Step 1: Print the grumpy cat template and cut out grumpy cat's face. Cut this shape out from the beige felt (use chalk to trace the shape if desired but if you have a steady hand you can simply hold the template to the felt while cutting).
Step 2: Cut the ears off of the template and cut the brown and black felt to match these shapes. 
Step 3: Do the same for the mouth, nose, and white patch. 
Step 4: Repeat for the eyes.
Step 5: Glue all the pieces onto the face.
Step 6: Once dry, cut out the eye holes on the beige felt.
Step 7: Cut a tiny hole in the beige felt next to the eye, feed the elastic through, and tie it. Repeat for the second side, adjusting the length of the elastic to the size of the wearer's head.
