Four-Pattern Set for Paper Mache Animal Masks


Save $10 when you buy the 4-pattern set.

These realistic animal masks are fun to make with cardboard, paper mache and paint. All instructions are included in the four downloadable PDF patterns.

Wear them to a party,  or use them as wall art, like I do.

Included in the set are four downloadable pattern files: Wolf Mask, Lion Mask, Cow Mask, and Cat Mask.

What you’ll get when you order:

This is a downloadable PDF Pattern with full instructions, so there’s no waiting and no shipping costs. You can start on your project right away. Be sure to download your pattern directly to your computer or device, so you can access it again later.

Note: Please double-check your email address when you order so I can send you the download link. If you don’t see it in your inbox, check your promotions folder. If it doesn’t arrive, please let me know.  If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, they have a special way of hiding your downloads. This article shows you how to find them.

Yes, you can sculpt these realistic animal masks, even if you’ve never sculpted anything before.

Just print the patterns on card stock, cut them out, and tape them together, following the detailed instructions that come with each pattern. The patterns create all the shapes for you. Just cover them with paper mache or paper mache clay, and paint.

If you’d rather make just one (or if you’d like to see the videos that show you how each pattern is used to create these masks), click on the following links:

  1. Hello! We are loving the patterns and heavily into making our masks for the lion king Jr production. Will you be doing a Pumbaa at all? ?

    • Hi Kate. I’m glad you’re enjoying the patterns. I just started on the design for Pumbaa. As you can imagine, it’s going to be quite challenging to make a pattern for the warthog’s weird shapes, so it will be several weeks before it’s available. Thanks for asking! 🙂

      • Thanks Jonni 🙂 Looking like we will be slightly delayed anyway with everything that is going on so plenty of time! Love the patterns – my class of 11 year olds are amazed at how these masks take shape Thanks so much again

      • Hi Vi. The finished sizes for the masks are:

        Wolf: About 11.5 inches (29 cm) high, 9.5 inches (23 cm) wide and 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) deep.

        Lion: Helmet-style mask – about 15.5 inches (39 cm) high, 13 inches (33 cm) wide and 12 inches (30 cm) deep. About 7.5” deep (17 cm) if built as a wall display mask.

        Cow: About 8 inches (20 cm) high, 15.5 inches (39 cm) wide and 12 inches (30 cm) deep for the wearable helmet-style mask or 10 inches (25 cm) deep for the wall sculpture.

        Cat: About 9.5 inches (24 cm) high, 9 inches (23 cm) wide and 9.5 inches (24 cm) deep if built as a helmet-style mask, or 3” deep (8 cm) if built as a wall display mask.
