Give South Dakota's most famous icon a makeover with your own mug.

To construct, you'll need:

Four separate images of the presidents' faces, at least 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. (Your face replaces someone in the lineup; however, you need the outline of the face)

You can print each image from the site below, but they are HUGE documents with a BIG DPI - so if you dial up don't do it  - print them on LEGAL-SIZED paper (8 1/2 x 14).  Print full-color presidential images on a home computer using best quality option.

Glue stick

Scissors

Sturdy rectangular-shaped, white cardboard, approximately 45 inches wide and 9 inches tall

Dowel rod

Duct tape

Use glue stick to apply the images to the cardboard, overlapping them slightly.




Press and allow to dry.

Select the face you'll remove, and carefully cut out an opening for your own face.



Use the scissors to remove the excess cardboard around the rest of the images.

Taping the dowel rod to the back of the cardboard allows you to hold your costume like a mask, making it much easier to get around.



When you fit your face through the opening, give the impression you're carved out of stone with a combination of white, gray and black face paint. Apply a base coat of white paint, working the black and gray into area under the eyes, the forehead and cheeks. A simple black outfit helps draw the attention to your monumental task.

Cool!  Last time I was at Mt. Rushmore I tried to take a picture to make my face look like a 5th carving, so I definitely appreciate this!

Although it is an old idea, it's an easy last minute costume!
