Bird Mask

Steps:7
Elaborate masks worn at Venice's famed "Carnevale" inspired these avian creations. The long nose on this papier-mache mask becomes a bird's beak, surrounded by crepe-paper plumage in gray or yellow. This mask calls for two types of crepe paper: thick florist crepe paper in gold, and regular (or fine) crepe paper in the remaining colors.
Materials
  • Papier-mache mask, mardigrasoutlet.com
  • Foam brush
  • Acrylic paint in a base color (gray or yellow) that matches the feathers to be added, misterart.com
  • Gold florist crepe paper, black crepe paper, and gray crepe paper, castleintheair.biz and misterart.com

Lace-Patterned Pumpkins

Steps:3
Not all pumpkins are orange, nor are they necessarily destined to become leering jack-o'-lanterns. The designs used on these pumpkins, carved freehand, mimic the lacelike openwork of 18th-century pierced creamware dishes, and turn any pumpkin (especially a pale Lumina) into an intricately patterned lamp.
Materials
  • Pumpkin or squash
  • Wood-carving tools
