I got absolutely no crafting done until the day before the party. Thank God some of my family was here from out of town and were awesome enough to help me finish everything. It takes a village!
One of the crafts that we did was these Hulk masks.
I found 3-packs of plain masks at Hobby Lobby for $3 each, making each mask $1. Then Grandma and Papa helped the girls apply a layer of Mod Podge to the top of a mask. Next, green glitter was…liberally…applied to the wet glue.
After they were all covered, we let them dry for about an hour. Not sure if it actually took that long for them to dry, but we wanted to be sure so they didn’t get messed up.
Next, work on the Hulk hair. I also found peel and stick felt pieces at Hobby Lobby. The felt already has adhesive on the back, so you literally just have to cut it to the right size, peel the backing off, and stick it on. A pack of two 9″x 12″ pieces was $2, and I was able to get 6 hair pieces from each sheet. First, I cut each sheet of felt into six 2″ pieces. You don’t have to worry too much about it being perfectly straight; the Hulk isn’t known for perfectly groomed hair after all. It will be a little big for the mask, so lay one of the pieces across a (dry) mask, flip it over and cut the excess off.
Then free hand the jagged edge to make it look like Hulk bangs. You now have a template for the other strips of felt.
Once the masks are dry, shake off the excess glitter (in this case, the excess amounted to half a bottle of glitter). Then spray each mask with spray Mod Podge. This is a pretty important step so that you do not have glitter falling everywhere during the party.
After you spray all of them, apply the hair pieces. Bam! You have awesome Hulk masks!
Full disclosure: the kids only played with them for like 15 minutes at the party. But, that’s kind of the nature of the beast when it comes to kids; especially at parties where there a dozen things scrambling for their attention. In my opinion, they were still worth making, because the kids had a blast with them for those 15 minutes, and they got to take them home.
Ary and I definitely had fun with them.
