Carefully cut off the handle section of the plastic jug. Use the photo here as a guide. You can use the rest of the plastic jug to make a plastic jug face mask.
Hold the handle section up to your face with the handle over your nose. Use a marker to put dots on the outside of the plastic jug handle where your eyes are. Cut out the eye holes.
Use masking tape to cover the cut edges of the plastic. If you prefer, you could use sand paper to smooth down the edges instead.
Poke two holes near the side edges, directly across from each other. Cut two pieces of yarn about 24-inches long. Tie one end of each piece of yarn into a hole. You can use the yarn to hold the mask in place. You can also make a handle to hold your mask in place using a dowel.
Use permanent markers and/or paint to design your mask. You can also use a variety of craft supplies to embellish. use feathers, craft foam, pom-poms, chenille stems, glitter, beads, or anything else to add details to your mask.
