Happy Badger Day! 6th October marks National Badger Day, a time to celebrate one of Britain’s favourite animals.
Brian the Badger is certainly one of our most popular animals, and he was absolutely delighted when we asked him to be the inspiration for this printable badger mask:
“Oh gosh! If you really think people will actually want to dress up as me, then by all means… yes, I’d be very happy to be your muse”
So we’ve created this cute mask ready for you to print out and enjoy. It’s perfect for fancy dress parties, dress-up playtime, and with Halloween rapidly approaching, it’s the basis for a super easy costume: just add some black or dark grey clothes and you’re sorted.

How to make your mask:
Start by printing the mask onto white card. The mask is sized for an average adult if you print at 100% or actual size, or you can adjust the size in your print settings if you need to be a wee bit smaller.
Carefully cut out the mask around the black outline, and inside the eye holes – either a craft knife or a small pair of scissors will make cutting those easier.
Next, cut 2 lengths of ribbon, or a length of elastic string. Then using a hot glue gun or glue dots attach the ribbon to the back of the mask. Alternatively, you can punch a hole at either side of the mask to tie the ribbon through.
