Spider-Man has too many loved ones in his life to risk ever being identified by his rogues' gallery of villains and nefarious enemies. That's why he hides his identity behind his distinctive full-face mask and enigmatic eye lenses.

To hide your own identity behind Spidey's iconic white lenses, all you need are some basic materials and tools. The important thing is to be able to see what you're doing, especially if that entails swinging from rooftops!

Trace the outline of Spider-Man's eye lenses onto the mesh fabric, and cut them out carefully.

Make sure the lenses are to scale with the size of mask you're making; a child's mask needs much smaller lenses than an adult mask.

Spray paint the lenses a glossy white on both sides, and allow the paint to dry thoroughly. Do this in a well-ventilated area.

Turn your mask inside-out and glue the lenses to the interior of the mask, covering the eye holes. Allow the glue to dry fully before turning the mask right-side-out again.

Trace the outside of the mask's eye holes with the marker to create the black frames that stand in stark contrast to Spidey's white eye lenses.
