This is a super fun DIY project that you can make for your kids to color. All you need to do to make these Coloring Masks is add the outlines to the masks using this Cricut file.

The Cricut file and designs are properly sized so that you can apply several different clip art to your Christmas face masks. 

For these face coverings, we have cute clip art of candy canes, Christmas wreath, holiday bell, mittens, stockings, holly, Christmas ornaments, and a Santa hat.
