Our family is dressing up in themed costumes again this Halloween. Being 2020, we need face masks too and I wanted them to coordinate. My initial plan was to purchase fabric and make some, but quickly switched gears and came up with an easier option for simple themed face masks to match our costumes. The best part is that this is an easy way to make special face masks for any time – not just Halloween.

DIY Simple Themed Face Masks for Halloween


  • Pre-made Fabric Face Masks (ours are from Target)
  • Silhouette or Cricut Machine
  • Character SVG Cut Files
  • Heat Transfer Vinyl
  • Iron or Heat Press


Step 1 Size your cut file(s) in your cutting software to fit your mask. I made all our ours about 1-1/2″ in height. Since I used one color of HTV, I arranged all 4 cut files on one page to cut at the same time. If you want to change colors, you will need to separate into separate files or adjust placement to match how you arrange the HTV on your mat.

Step 2 Mirror the character cut file if needed. Then use a Silhouette or Cricut machine to cut the shapes in the HTV.

Step 3 Carefully weed the excess HTV so that only your character outline remains. If you have multiple characters, use scissors to cut around each to separate for mask placement.

Step 4 Choose where you want the character on your mask. You’ll notice in the R2-D2 one, I opted to use the pleats as a separation point between the head and body. If your mask is also pleated, this idea might work for your character as well.

Step 5 Following the HTV instructions, use an iron or heat press to attach the HTV to the face mask fabric. I found my Cricut EasyPress Mini worked really well due to its small size.

Repeat all steps above for each additional mask.

That’s it! You now have a set of themed face masks for your family to wear on Halloween.
