Elephant Mask

You can tell this gorgeous elephant mask is of an Indian elephant because of his colourful head-dress and his ears! Fun for kids to make and wear!

Elephant mask

You will need:

Large paper plate
Grey paint
Grey card
Coloured paper
Decoration (we used 3D paint and gems you can use whatever you have to hand)
Thin elastic


Paint the back of the paper plate grey and leave to dry.

When the paint is dry cut out your eye holes.

From grey card cut a trunk and two ears, remembering that Indian elephants have small ears.

Glue the ears to opposite sides of the face and the trunk to the middle.

Cut out a triangle of coloured paper for the head-dress and glue it to the plate so the point sits between the eyes. Decorate the coloured paper with bits from your craft box.

Make a small hole in either side of the face. Tie a piece of elastic through.
