DIY Shark Mask

Written by Lucie Carr


Dawn from The Amazing Art Cart shows us how to make your own Shark Mask…

You will need:

A Paper Plate

Some pens or paint – we love Posca paint pens as they give a super smooth matt finish





Step 1 Turn your paper plate upside own and fold in half. Cut 2 equal semi circles to make the shape of the sharks face. It might help to draw the lines first as guides. Keep the offcuts – we’ll need them in a minute!

Step 2 Keeping your paper plate folded in half, use the circle on the plate as a guide to cut shark shaped teeth. Key to this is cutting gaps between the teeth and making them short and sharp!

Step 3 Use your pens to make a blue section at the top of the mask.

Step 4 Use a pink pen to draw a line around the teeth for the sharks gums.

Step 5 Now use the offcuts form the plate to make your eyes, colour them in blue and glue onto the back and stick on your eyes.

Step 6 Hole punch 2 nostrils and 2 holes on the side of the mask for the ribbon.

Ta da, well done, enjoy your shark mask.
