Masquerade Masks...Summer Projects Continue

More homemade ingenuity.

Hand Crafted Masquerade Masks

My oldest daughter and her friend decided to plan
and host a summer Masquerade party for the up and coming High Schoolers.
(I know, how much fun does that sound?)

These two hip and chic teens organized and planned it all:
prizes (and they were good ones)
...the whole shebang.

And the two hostess' even gave the twin
rising middle schoolers a courtesy invite.
Can you say, sisterly love?
Boy, were they excited.

Well, immediately the twins went into "mask mode".
And in the typical Brookes fashion, one trip to the
craft store and the mask making project had begun.

Here are their creations:

We used swirly scrapbook gem stickers
and some colorful feathers...

I love their creations

Tess did not like the "funky" nose...
So she cut it out. Not bad, actually.

Homer didn't think so, either.

Which is when we knew we had to bedazzle him.
What do you think?

As always, thanks for visiting...


  1. I love this idea!!!! And I'm sure Homer admirably filled his role as royal mascot.

  2. Hi Wendy, I just learned how to comment! (Slow learner) I love Homer's mask and I love seeing the girls having fun!
