Pattern for a
Grizzly Bear Mask
or Wall Sculpture
Take a walk on the wild side…
Wear your hand-crafted grizzly bear mask at your next dress-up party, or use the pattern to make a permanent work of art for your wall.
Either way, no sculpting experience is required – the pattern creates all the realistic shapes for you.
Bring your grizzly bear to life with your own creative touches and a bit of paper and paint, and then proudly say that you made it yourself!
How to make your grizzly bear mask or sculpture:
Watch the videos below to see how to tape the pattern pieces together, how you can add sculpted fur if you want to, and how to paint your grizzly bear.
Finished size: About 9.75 inches (24.8 cm) high, 9.7 inches (24.6 cm) wide and 12 inches (30.7 cm) deep. The pattern is designed to fit an adult head, but if it’s too large or small, the instructions show you how to make it fit perfectly.
My downloadable PDF Patterns come with full instructions.
There’s no waiting for your pattern to arrive, and no shipping costs, so you can start on your project right away.

Wonderful grizzly! The fur texture and painting turned out really well. The Grizzly Bear is the state animal of California, although sadly there are none left now. In fourth grade students are taught the history of the state and I think this would be such a fun project for them to do.
That would be a fun project for the kids. It’s so sad that the bears are gone, though.
Wonderful! Love it! You did a great job painting too. Reminds me of BooBoo on Yogi Bear , LoL Can’t wait to try to make one
I can’t wait to see how your bear turns out. 🙂
He turned out really nice! I didn’t think you could improve on the paint job, but your final step really did improve the look of it. While I have never seen a real grizzly, yours is so realistic! Wonderful job on the pattern as well. I’m sure it will be a popular one!
Thanks, Eileen. I do like this one – it has a ‘vintage’ look, if that makes any sense. 🙂
