Channel your inner dragon with this simple craft!
Our mask craft, inspired by Elliot from Pete’s Dragon, is perfect for a last minute fancy dress idea and a brilliant way to recycle household items.
- 1 empty rectangular tissue box
- 1 empty cardboard egg box
- Green paint
- Khaki paint
- 1 sponge
- 2 white plastic cups
- 4 black circular stickers
- Elastic thread
- White paper
Remove one side of the tissue box then paint with several layers of green paint, making sure it dries inbetween coats.
Cut three spikes from the egg box to create the horns of your dragon and paint them green.
For a camouflage effect, cut a sponge and dip it in the paint and apply the khaki on the box and horns.
For the eyes, cut up cups and glue stickers on the ends to make your dragon's pupils.
Cut zig-zag shapes out of the white paper for Elliot's teeth.
Glue the horns to the box, followed by the eyes and then the teeth and nostrils.
Finally attach some elastic using a stapler on the underside edge of your box. Adjust it to the size of your child's head.
