Clown mask

If a child wants to be dressed up for a holiday, it is not necessary to buy an expensive carnival costume. Indeed, next year the child will grow out of him, and will he want to be in the same outfit again? Therefore, you can make a mask out of paper, and choose bright and elegant clothes.
To make such a clown mask, you will need:

• light gray cardboard in landscape format;
• color cardboard;
• a set of colored paper;
• glue;
• scissors;
• a simple pencil;
• felt-tip pens.
First, on a sheet of cardboard with a simple pencil, outline the outline of the future face of the clown. Draw him eyes, nose, and mouth.

Make cuts for the eyes.

Circle the shape of the nose with a felt-tip pen and carefully cut along the drawn line.

Cut a strip of teeth from white paper. Glue.

From yellow paper, make two strips for eyebrows. On the one hand, make cuts, not reaching the opposite edge by 0.5 cm.

Glue the eyebrows, draw strips of teeth and circle the outline of the mouth.

Cut out two circles of pink paper.

It will be cheeks. Glue them.
Draw facial wrinkles with a simple pencil.

Make a cut in the mouth.

If you have red cardboard, then you can immediately cut the hat out of it. But if you don’t have it, then you need to first make a hat out of cardboard, and then stick colored paper on it.
To make a hat with pompons, take a sheet of cardboard and determine the place where the clown will have a hat. Draw it with a pencil.

Cut out the locations indicated by the arrows.

Cut the bottom of the cap so that it goes over the clown’s forehead, and you have enough space to glue the parts.
Try it on, but don't stick it yet.

Put the blank blank on the red paper, make the markup.

Glue the blank and glue it to the colored paper. Cut along the contour.

For pompons, cut circles out of colored cardboard, for example, around a plastic bottle cap.

There should be twice as many circles as the protrusions on the cap.
Spread one circle with glue, attach one of the cones of the cap to it, and bury it with another circle, which you should also glue with.

So glue all the pompons.

To make hair, cut a long strip of 4 cm wide from yellow paper. Make a fringe on it along the entire length without cutting to the opposite edge 1 cm, and make small notches on the opposite side so that the strip fits better along the contour.

Glue the edge of the uncut strip along the entire length and glue the caps to the inside. "Hair" comb up.

Again, try on the clown and carefully glue the hat.

For the collar, take a sheet of cardboard and attach it as shown in the photo.
With a pencil, draw the contours of the two parts of the collar.

Choose the color as desired. Using a pencil, circle the bottom of the face on a piece of cardboard. Lubricate the top of the collar blank with glue and place an almost finished mask on it strictly up to the line.

Stick colorful circles on the collar.
To prevent the eye sockets from appearing empty, take a small sheet of paper of light green or blue color, make round holes by measuring the distance between the centers of the pupils of the child.

And glue the strip on the wrong side of the mask. Draw small cilia.
To the mask does not move off the face, it must be fixed on the rims. Cut two long strips of cardboard. On one of them, connect the ends so that it matches the volume of the child’s head. Glue the second strip on top, making it like a hat.

Glue the mask to the strip so that it fits well on the head. You can also stick thin elastic bands on the sides of the mask.

And the final touch. If you want the clown to have lipstick, cut his mouth out of red paper, as shown in the photo, and glue it. Place the red circle on the tip of the buffoon’s nose.
The clown mask is ready!
