Spread Cheer, Not Germs This Holiday Season With This Snowman Face Mask

“Snow” joke, but this Snowman Face Mask is perfect for the holidays.

After this long and trying 2020, it’s nice to finally be able to say that the greatest time of the year is officially here! While it is certainly no fun that we are still having to deal with this virus, it is nice to be able to enjoy the things that bring us tidings of comfort and joy—from holiday music and movies to festive decorations.

But this holiday season, it’s still imperative that we protect ourselves and those we love while we partake in all of our holiday traditions. To keep you safe while still adding some holiday spirit, I have made the cutest holiday face mask that even Frosty the Snowman himself would approve of: A DIY Snowman Face Mask!

With just a white cotton face mask and some Tulip Color Fabric Markers, you can help spread holiday cheer this season without spreading the virus and quickly whip up some festive masks for the entire family! (Fabric markers for this DIY project were gifted to me by Tulip Color.)

Plus, since we could all still use some face masks, these festive masks make for a great holiday present!

Read on to learn how to make this adorable Snowman Face Mask!

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • A white cotton face mask (you can find these online!)
  • An orange and black Tulip Color Fabric Marker (fabric markers were gifted by Tulip Color)
  • A pencil (optional)

Here’s How to Make a Snowman Face Mask:

Before creating my Snowman Face Mask, I washed the white cotton face mask.

With your fresh, clean face mask on hand, get out your Tulip Color Fabric Markers. I used the Neon Orange and Black fabric markers. Lay your white cotton face mask on a flat surface and begin to draw your carrot nose shape. I used a pencil to lightly trace the snowman features.

To make the various features on the mask align with mine, I put on the mask and made a very light pencil mark where the tip of my nose hit on the mask. Then, I marked where the center of my bottom lip was so I could later use that line to create the smile made of coal.

Once I had those parts marked, I drew the carrot nose.

Centering the small line I made where my nose was, I drew the carrot nose (an oblong-looking teardrop shape) around that line, making the left side of the carrot rounded for the base of the nose and the right side into a point for the tip of the carrot. (You can see this in the photos below!)

Once I was satisfied with the shape of the carrot nose and thought it looked centered (you can always gently erase your pencil markings and redo them until you are satisfied with the shape), I drew in the carrot nose with my Neon Orange Tulip Color Fabric Marker, gently erasing my pencil markings as I approached the edge of them with the fabric marker. I colored in the carrot nose until the white of the face mask was completely covered and I was satisfied with the coverage of the orange fabric maker.

After the carrot nose was colored in, I began to create the coal smile.

Using the marking I had previously made where my mouth was as the center of the coal smile, I drew a small circle for the center coal of the snowman smile. From there, I drew three coal circles on either side of the center, making sure that all of the coals in the smile were relatively equidistant and even on both sides.

Once all of the coals were drawn for the smile, I took my Black Tulip Color Fabric Marker and colored in the coals.

When the smile was all colored in, I set my mask aside to completely dry before wearing it.

And there you go! How easy was that Snowman Face Mask?! There’s “snow” better way to stay protected during the holiday season!

  1. This idea seemed like so much fun while having to wear a mask that, yup I have one myself now! Even my daughter has one and when we wore them together while shopping another customer complemented on how cute we looked. Thanks for a fun way to celebrate while having to deal with covid.
