Cut eye holes in the red mask.

Cut a head shape and some spots from the black or purple felt.

Glue the cut-out items onto the red mask. I needed to glue the items on, squash them flat, peel them off, then re-glue and re-stick. This created a good bond.

Leave to dry then make a hole in each side of the mask with the skewer.
Attach the elastic through each hole and tie with a knot.

Your ladybird mask is now ready to wear. Enjoy!
