Paper Mache Hyena Mask Pattern

Paper Mache Hyena Mask Pattern

This pattern helps you create a Hyena Mask out of cardboard and paper mache.

This Hyena mask has been used in many school theater productions of the Lion King. The printable pattern (PDF) is cut out and then traced onto cardboard. The cardboard pieces are then taped together, additional shaping is done with foil and hot glue or masking tape, and then he’s ready for a final ‘skin’ of paper mache.

There’s a link on the pattern to several videos that will show you how to put your mask together. Use acrylic paint to finish your mask.

This is a fairly easy project, but kids might need help cutting out the pattern and putting the pieces together.

  1. I used your template to make a dog for my school project! Had to tweak tons of things, but eventually finished. I’m not 100% happy with it, but I think it’s pretty okay for my first try.
