A paper mache mask allows children to color, paint or use markers. They could also cover the mask in fabric or decorative paper (attach either with spray adhesive or fabric glue). Using markers allows them to keep decorating with out any down time. With paint or glue, allow time for the mask to dry before you move on to adding accents.

Versatile poly deco mesh is one of our favorite craft products because it can be used in endless applications. Wrap gifts, decorate for parties, create wreaths or garland. The sky is the limit with this fun mesh. Decorative poly mesh is also water proof so it is great for outdoor applications as well as indoor.
This synthetic deco-mesh fabric comes on rolls of various widths and lengths. The standard mesh size, we use in this video tutorial, is 21” wide by 10 yards (30 feet). A wide range of colors and patterns are available to match any color scheme or holiday theme.
One of the most basic ways to use poly deco mesh is to create bows. This short video tutorial shows how to create a large poly deco mesh bow out of the Mardi Gras striped poly deco mesh. With these basic instructions you can easily create designer quality bows perfect for gifts, wreaths, chairs and more!
