Halloween is coming up and it’s a great time to make some hot glue masks!

If you’ve already got a glue gun, you probably have everything you need already at home! We use a low-temperature glue gun to help avoid mishaps, and always keep the glue gun stored in a container (a recycled plastic bin works well if your glue gun is low-temp) when it’s not in use.


  • Mask template
  • Parchment paper
  • Masking tape
  • Hot glue guns and hot glue sticks
  • Bins to hold hot glue guns
  • Embellishments- Beads, feathers, pipe cleaners, buttons, and markers (preferably sharpies)

Start off by placing a piece of parchment paper over the template. Tape the 2 pieces of paper together and tape them to the surface you are working on.

Next, trace over the template onto the parchment paper just in case the 2 pieces of paper slip from each other later.

Here comes the fun part! It’s time to add your personal touch to the mask by designing the shape! Remember, the template is just a general guide, but this is your mask. You can be whoever you want to be!

Next, trace everything with the hot glue and then fill it in!

Now we get to decorate!

And finally, add some strings on the side so you can tie your mask on.

Last but not least, wear it with style!

That’s all folks. Happy making everyone!

Let us know how it goes. Until next time …
