I want to show the master class - costume and maskmonkeys, which are very easy to make by themselves (2016 - the year of the fiery monkey). After all, soon the favorite children's New Year holiday, for school Christmas trees and holidays in kindergarten, many parents make children masks and costumes. For those who like to sew from felt, make a monkey mask for the child, it's easy to draw a stencil (or download) and sew in two layers (you can see how I sewed a mask of felt for my child). In this article there will be a mask made of cardboard: Download the monkey muzzle on the link: Monkey mask with your own hands. (or draw it yourself, it's not difficult), we cut it out. For the strength of the mask, we need cardboard. On it we outline lines on the cardboard, along which we will cut out the nose and eyes (but, of course, first try on the child's mask to properly mark the eye holes). Now we need to make holes for the rubber band withsides, you also need to try on the mask, so that the child was comfortable in it, and the rubber bands did not hit the ears. To strengthen the holes for the rubber bands (the kids do not always carefully remove the mask), one must glue them with adhesive tape on both sides. It remains to insert the elastic band and the mask is ready!A mask can be colored. The next element of the monkey costume is the tail. We need thick wire, cloth, stocking. We wrap the wire with a thick cloth and insert the resulting roll into the stocking: Belt for the tail can be made from the same stocking or children's belt: That's how we get a monkey. We take a banana and jump on the holiday! Such still happen masks and suits of the monkey, made by own hands: Another crafts - the symbol of 2016.
