If you’re not sure what you are going to wear for Halloween this year, these gorgeous geometric masks may inspire you to make one of your own. Designer Steve Wintercroft created a series of templates in different forms, from animal totem-like shapes to spooky skulls and pumpkins. To make things as easy and green as possible, he provides digital files with instructions on how to make your own Halloween masks and suggests you should use recycled paper.
These beautiful masks range from those created from simple white sheets of paper, to intricately colored ones that look like works of art. They are a perfect last-minute idea for those who still haven’t decided on their Halloween costumes. The designer himself had a similar experience a few years ago, when he received an invite for a Halloween party but struggled to come up with a costume. In a fit of inspiration, he took some old cardboard, parcel tape and a pair of scissors and made himself a fox mask.
Wintercroft proposes using recycled paper as an alternative to cardboard and shares his digital files in order to save on shipping fuel. If you decide not to use one of his designs, you can still take inspiration from them and make your own geometrical mask and decorate it with anything that sticks to paper.
