Butterfly masks for Mardi Gras @ WBCL

Using fun foam is not my favorite from an environmental point of view but there was little to select from in ready to use masks in any form. I was able to get a bonus pack of butterflies and a package of cardboard butterfly masks and create enough for the group to use and not break the bank!

We had lots of Mardi Gras beads and sequins to use, a few jewels, and of course, feathers.  Some of the parents were reluctant to use lots of glue but assurances that it takes a lot to hold the beads on won out. We cut the long strands of beads to fit the spaces or the border and went from there. Every one of the masks is unique and were really fun to make.
