DIY Miraculous Ladybug Santa Hat and Mask

It’s no secret that Christmas movies are one of my favorite things about Christmas. That is why I’m so excited they are the theme for Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. Instead of the traditional movies I let my kiddos pick the Christmas movie I created a craft for. They chose A Christmas Special: Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir. If you haven’t seen it, you totally should. You can find it on Netflix. It’s one of the few kid shows that I don’t mind watching over and over (as much). This DIY Miraculous Ladybug Santa hat and mask are a wonderful Christmas surprise for your little superhero.

Step 8

Then, slightly trim the sharp edges where your nose was so that they don’t stab you.

Note:

  • Seriously, trim them. I’m super clumsy and can vouch that they hurt.

Step 9

Next, fold a sheet of red tissue paper so that it is roughly a ½ inch to 1 inch bigger than your mask on all sides.

Tip:

  • You’ll need about 8 layers of paper for the mask.

Step 14

Next, add a thin coat of Mod Podge to your mask with your foam brush.

Tip:

  • It is best to do this on a non-stick surface.

Step 16

Now flip your mask over and tape the attached stretch band of the mask to it so that it doesn’t get in your way.

Tip:

  • Make sure that you weave it around the eye holes in the mask.

Step 19

Next, carefully add black polka dots to your mask as you did with your Santa hat.

Tip:

  • You can use acrylic paint for the mask. I simply chose to use the same fabric paint because I already had it out. Either works find for this part of the project.

Step 20

Let everything dry completely before moving on.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
