Once you have a design in mind, start cutting shapes out of the stiffened felt. For this mask we cut out felt feathers to make a frosty white bird mask!

Next, peel off the VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics, stick both sides to the back of your felt shapes, and stick them directly onto your mask.

For small shapes, you can always cut the VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics in half and use the smaller strips to secure them.

Once you’ve attached all your felt shapes to your mask, its time to add a glittery edge! Squeeze out a small amount of glitter glue, and lightly brush it onto the edges of your felt shapes.

We added one more goofy number, with interchangeable eyebrows, mustache, and hat applied to the mask, plus two additional props: a monocle and bowtie!

Reinforce hand-held props with VELCRO® Brand Sticky Back for Fabrics and a second layer of felt. You can also construct bowties with interchangeable bow shapes.
