DIY Dr. Doom Mask

Hi everyone, I’m Stephen and today I’m using cardboard to make a Dr Doom mask!

Dr. Doom is an iconic villain and powerhouse in Marvel Comics. He rules a country and should be respected!

He also has one of the coolest costumes in all of media, so I decided to make his silvery mask. I hope you like it!


  • Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends:
    • **Dr. Doom also shows up in many, many more animated and live action series. But gotta give props to the OG Spider-Man cartoon!**

Material List:

Steps to Make a Dr. Doom Mask:

  1. Print out template.
  2. Cut out the pieces.
  3. Tape pieces onto cereal box cardboard.
  4. The only piece that will get taped to corrugated cardboard is the frame.
    • Cut out 4x.
  5. Cut out all pieces using scissors and/or a utility knife. All solid lines on the template are cut lines but the dotted lines should be lightly scored and not cut all the way through.
    • The mouth grate was cut out from 2 layers of cardboard that were stacked and glued together.
    • And the detailed pieces around the eyes were cut from 3 layers.
  6. Cut a long piece of wire from a wire hanger. This piece is for the forehead.
  7. Cut a small piece of wire from a wire hanger. This piece is for the chin.
  8. Sandwich wire pieces between the 4 layers of the frame, which should be held together with a little glue and a little bit of tape.
  9. Trim the ends of the wires so they didn’t poke out the sides of the mask.
  10. Assemble nose.
  11. Fold and push the piece together, using tape on the inside to hold it together.
  12. Glue into the face of the mask.
  13. Glue jaw onto the frame.
  14. Glue face onto the frame.
  15. Trim edges so it looks neat and clean.
  16. Slide in forehead. Secure with glue.
  17. Trim again, if needed.
  18. Glue down the design elements:
    • White glue works best for the chin and lips.
    • Hot glue works best for the eye details.
    • Hot glue works best for the mouth grate.
  19. Use a hole punch to punch out “rivets” from a stack of 2 cereal box cardboard sheets (I used the seam where the cereal box ends are glued together during manufacturing….this saves some time.)
  20. Glue all the rivets into place with white glue.
  21. Cheek coils:
    • Snip a pen into the length of one of the cheek coils.
    • Take a piece of paper fold roughly into thirds, and roll the paper around the pen. Secure with white glue.
    • Roll thinner strips of paper around the bigger roll until you get the bulk you like (it took be 2 strips for each of the segments).
    • Hot glue 2 coils into each cheek.
  22. Paint:
    • First a coat of black craft paint.
    • Then a coat of silver craft paint.
  23. Hot glue on elastic so the mask can be worn.
  24. Enjoy!
