How to Make Your Fox Mask:
This is an easy pattern, with just 16 pieces. You can create a helmet-style mask, like the one shown above, or use the special pieces included in the pattern to put a flat back on the fox. That lets you hang your fox on the wall.
Finished size: Finished size: About 9.5 inches (24.13 cm) high, 8.5 inches (20.32 cm) wide and 12 inches (30.48 cm) deep (when used as a helmet mask).
Or 7 inches (17.78 cm) deep (when used as a wall sculpture.
The size of the mask can be adjusted to fit any head. The instructions show you how.
