Making Tiki masks from juice bottles @WBCL

This is a project that I have been looking forward to all summer. I love making masks and the kids seem to love making them and using them, even ones like this that do not have eyeholes. 
The mask requires 1/2 of a 64oz juice bottle cut vertically, about 1/3 of a brown paper bag, a little construction paper or scrapbook paper, a corn husk,  a bit of tape and a little glue.
We wrapped the bag around the bottle and secured it with postal tape fitting it on top and bottom to cover. We then cut eyes and a mouth out of construction paper and added them. We made the nose and ears from bag handles or leftover paper bag cuttings and taped them on. I had a donation of some animal print paper that we used to decorate the faces with--zebra and cheetah. We added a bit of black paper shed for hair and a corn husk for a beard. The results were great as usual and had lots of variety.
