Plastic Jug Wall Masks

Wall masks made from plastic jugs.

Approximate Time: Depends on details added.


  • rectangular plastic jugs
  • textured spray paint
  • details of your choice for hair, eyes, mouth, etc.
  • string for hanging


Cut tops off jugs as shown in photo. Make a hole at top center and make a string loop for hanging. Protect surface with newspapers where you expect to spray and then spray using textured spray paint, available in paint departments of most stores. Let dry before hanging.

Kids will have fun adding plastic eyes, loop earrings, yarn hair etc. Another idea would be to hang a number of them vertically in a row to make a pretend totem pole.

When I first saw these I really thought they were the masks you make and decorate. I mean the real thing. I can see where it would be very fun for the young ones to decorate them. You could hang on an outside pole or tree and use as you said for a totem pole. Paint with bright colors and have fun with it.
