Spider-Man is a popular character for many children and adults and his is a fairly simple mask to make. All you need is red and white construction paper, a marker and a few tools. You can adjust the size and proportions of the mask to fit any face and kids can help to construct their own masks.
Cut an oval out of red construction paper large enough to cover your face.
Cut two teardrop shapes out of white construction paper that are large enough to cover the eyes and extend toward the temples.
Glue the white paper eyes in place with a glue stick and allow it to dry.
Cut eye holes in the white section of the mask so you can see.
Draw a border around the white areas with a thick, black marker.
Draw an asterisk-shape on the mask with a black marker, with the central hub positioned between the eyes.
Draw a series of web-shaped circles to connect the lines. The one at the hub should be the smallest; the larger ones extending out to the edges of the mask.
Punch a hole in both sides of the mask near the edge. Tie it to your head with a piece of red yarn.
