Paper Plate Duck Mask
A duck mask can be created using a white paper plate. Draw two eyes 3 inches below the top of the paper plate and cut the eyes out. Outline the eyes with black crayon or marker. Draw a yellow duckbill below the eyes, extending to the bottom of the paper plate. Create the duckbill in the shape of a "V," with the widest part of the duckbill being at the bottom of the paper plate. Trim off the excess paper plate around the duckbill and fold the duckbill up so it pokes out off the mask. Poke a small hole in each side of the mask and tie a piece of elastic through the holes so the mask can be worn around the head of the mask wearer.
Craft Foam Duck Mask
To create a duck mask out of a craft foam sheet, start by cutting a round-edged rectangle from a white craft foam sheet. This needs to be big enough to cover the eyes of the mask wearer. Cut two eye holes out of the rectangle. Next, cut a large duckbill out of yellow craft foam. Have an adult use a hot glue gun to glue the duckbill to the white eye mask with the duckbill poking out from the mask at a 90 degree angle. Attach elastic to the sides of the mask so the mask can be worn around the head of the mask wearer.
Duck Baseball Hat
A way to make a duck mask that does not cover the face of the costume wearer is by making a duck baseball hat. Start by using black paint to paint large eyes on the cap portion of a white baseball hat. Cut a piece of yellow felt to fit over the brim of the baseball hat. Glue the yellow felt to the top of the hat brim. Cut out small white feathers from white felt and use a needle and thread to sew the feathers to the top of the baseball hat.
Themed Duck Masks
To create a themed duck mask, decorate a paper plate duck mask, craft foam duck mask or duck baseball hat. Add different accessories that fit the theme of the duck. To make a princess duck, add a small tiara to the top of the mask, along with sparkly earrings on the sides of the mask. Create a graduation duck mask by cutting out a small graduation cap and gluing it to the top of one of the duck masks. Other themed duck mask ideas are a pirate duck, cowboy duck or rock star duck. Create a realistic duck by gluing coloured feathers to the mask that match the colours of a duck in the wild.
