Instruction

1
Decide on the character whom you plan to represent. If the concrete plan is not present, take as a basis traditional New Year's images: Father Frost, Snow Maiden, New Year's Fir-tree, Snowman, Snowflake, New year, Snow Queen. Or ask for the help east calendar and create the image according to the animal representing the coming year.
If you do a mask to the child - to your choice the huge list of fairy tale characters.

2
Write down to yourself the sketch on paper. It will help you not to deviate from conceived and to build the actions in the necessary order.

3
Think over, of what material will do a mask. It can be paper, a foil, fabric, skin, fur, rubber, polyethylene or something more non-standard. At a choice of material remember some important rules. Material should not irritate face skin or have a lining. It has to correspond to as much as possible conceived image (for example, it is more expedient to make a mask of a hare of fur, and Zorro's mask will look as well as possible executed from black skin or the atlas).

4
Decide on accessories which are necessary for creation of the fullest image. So can decorate a mask of New year for recognition with four figures designating the next year, or hours which shooters stood for the half-night. Any animal mask will become more expressive in the presence of a nose, eyes and moustaches. The mask of the Snowman is inconceivable without nose carrot. And the main attribute of a mask of Father Frost - a white beard.

5
Make a pattern of the conceived mask. For this purpose do not forget to measure parameters of the person (width of the person, distance between eyes, location of a nose and so on). Apply a pattern to the person. If the result suits you - safely cut out a mask from the prepared material.

6
Process a mask depending on the used material in avoidance of fast failure. Sew/paste a lining. Attach the mechanism at the expense of which the mask will keep. It can be both a usual elastic band or the handle, and more difficult designs. For example, a ski hat or handles of points if those are represented on a mask. Anyway, do not forget to check reliability of fastenings. Paste over all openings with additional layers of strong material (especially if you do a mask of paper or a papier-mache).

7
Add a mask with the New Year's suit and good mood corresponding to an image.
