Easy Animal Paper Plate Masks

Make Animal Paper Plate Masks for Dress Up Fun!

It's truly amazing to discover just what you can make with a paper plate! When we discovered that people were "googling" the term "animal paper plate masks", we just knew that it wouldn't be long before Maya came up with something cute, fun and (best of all) easy to make.

So, drum roll please.....Here's her latest addition to our paper plate crafts collection!


Animal Paper Plate Masks

Do you want to make this craft? Here's a list of supplies to get you started:


  • One white paper plate
  • Brown, white and pink construction paper
  • A black marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Our Cow Template


Print out our template and cut out the pieces. Transfer them onto construction paper and cut out. Glue in place on the back of your paper plate.

Now with your marker, or black paint, paint on black spots to the face. Let dry completely.

When everything is dry, cut out the holes for your eyes...and that's it! Attach to a popsicle stick to hold up to your face or staple elastic to the sides of the mask and wear around your head. Either way, you just made your first animal paper plate mask!
