Beaded Mardi Gras Mask



Make a mask that can match your costume exactly-whether you're going to a Mardi Gras party, or any themed party-using our beads, tape and thread on a purchased plastic mask. It won't take very long to do, and you can create a custom look.

Beaded Mardi Gras Mask


  • Plastic eye maskTreasure Tape dots
  • Sequins
  • Diamond Beadlets®
  • Treasure Tape, 8" x 10" sheet
  • Shallow pan or tray
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in colors to match your theme (we used 1223 Purple)


  1. For a more elaborate design, trace out a reverse pattern on the white backing of the Treasure Tape sheet (we drew swirls). Cut out. Remove the white backing and lay the design on the mask.
  2. Lay Treasure Tape dots randomly on the mask. Remove the red liner to expose the sticky top, and lay a sequin on each. Lay the mask in a shallow pan or tray and cover any remaining sticky areas on the dots with Diamond Beadlets.
  3. Remove the red liner from your larger tape areas, and begin decorating: add thread first, using the #12 Braid to outline the area or make other designs. Then add sequins if desired. When decorating is complete, cover remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets.

Kreinik threads available through needlework stores or www.kreinik.com.

Nice project. Would be great if you show us how to make the mask itself first as the title was misleading. It should say, decorating a mask with beads.
