Making Nativity Masks from Princesses

For our church’s Christmas presentation, the children in our Sunday School class are putting on a bit of a play. They are creating masks and saying a little poem for each part.

When looking for supplies for making the masks at Michaels, we found some neat princess masks. I had the idea that I could turn them into Mary, Joseph, shepherds, angels, wisemen and even cows and sheep.

I started with this:

Then drew new lines on the princesses with a pencil and used clippers to cut off the unwanted pieces of wood.
 

I used white acrylic paint to paint each mask totally white.
 

I used a sharpie permanent marker to add details – this was the fun part. I think they look sort of like playmobile people!

And finally, the kiddos painting them at church on Sunday. I forgot to get a photo of the finished masks, but they did turn out pretty cute. Maybe I can get a photo this Sunday!
