1. Improvised latex Halloween masks. Many people would agree that latex or hard plastic masks could be quite uncomfortable once worn. And why not? These are made from synthetic plastic materials and can even be harmful when not used properly. So if are not into wearing latex masks sold in specialty shops, you can create your very own latex inspired mask.

Here, you'll be needing poster board or light weight cardboard, elastic or tongue depressor, and various embellishments to make the mask stand out. The instructions are quite simple, you need to cut the board with the shape of your face, cut it out, punch holes in each side of the mask and decorate it using various embellishments such as poster paints, feathers, glitter, and everything you wish to put in. The  good thing about this is you can make your mask as scary and as ghoulish as you want it to be.

2. Simple paper and cloth masks. This is quite popular and easy to do because all you will be needing is a used cloth which can come from a used pillowcase or shirts, permanent markers, a pair of scissors, and lots of duck tape. Doing a paper and face mask is easy because all you have to do is lay the cloth flat and cut a hole in the center of the cloth. Afterwards, you need to take a piece of paper and draw the mask that you like. Then, turn the cloth inside out and lay the mask face down.

Using the duct tape, tape the sides of the mask down to the cloth and cut the eye holes. Let the duct tape grip the cloth and paper well then you can now decorate your Halloween mask using markers and other crafts and embellishments that you want to include.

3. Your very own printed mask. If you are not the type who is into work stuff such as cutting, pasting, and drawing, you can still make your very own Halloween mask through the use of computer. Today, there are so many sites, which offer Halloween mask patterns, which are ready for printing.

While these may not be as realistic as some of the expensive masks you buy in stores and costume shops, they can still serve a purpose. When you pay a lot of money on a mask for a small child, it may turn out to be money wasted. Masks can make a child very hot, making it appear hard to breathe, or even see through.

Keep in mind what the end result is supposed to be when looking at the different printable Halloween masks. Once you find something that fits your vision, print it out and get to work.

The first thing you will want to do is trace this mask on a piece of poster board. It will need something to give it support and substance to stay on without tearing. Cut out the poster board mask and glue it to the back of the printed version. Let it dry completely before doing any more work on it. Any coloring, painting or decorating can be done after this. Depending on what you want the mask to look like, you will need things like paint, glitter, or anything else you can think of that you would like to put on your mask.

If you are making these printable Halloween masks for children, you will need to make small slits or holes on the sides of the mask to run either a string, elastic, or ribbon through. This will hold the masks on their faces. Using an Exacto knife is the best way to cut these holes as well as the eyes, nose and mouth into the masks. They cut more precisely and you don’t run the risk of tearing the holes. Adults can simply use a tongue depressor or emery board attached to one side of the mask to hold it up their faces.
