These DIY Superhero Masks are so simple to make and perfect for crafting with your tweens. As my boys are getting older, I am finding that it is just as important if not more important to keep crafting and creating with them. Partly due to the fact that it gives us one on one time where we can just chat and also to keep open the creative sides.
When Just Posh Masks sent us a selection of their blank masquerade masks to decorate I had something in mind for them, however, Mini had his own idea, so this week we sat down and he showed me what he was thinking of and then he created these amazing DIY Superhero masks. One for Superman and one for Bat Man. All I did was provide the materials and the company!

How to make DIY Superhero Masks
Acrylic paint is perfect for decorating these masks which are made from resin and coated with several layers of tempera. In fact, Mini only needed one layer of good quality acyclic paint for both the Superman and Batman masks. Once the paint was dry Mini drew on Batman logo on the black mask and painted it yellow.
The bat logo took four coats of paint, but as you can see (Maxi is modeling) it looks amazing!
We tried something different with the Superman mask and printed out a logo off the internet. Mini then glued it to his mask using a low melt glue gun. I love how they both turned out. Mini had great fun making his masks and now wants to have a superhero party.
We had so much fun making these, that we made some Peakcock ones, so keep an eye open for them.
