Has anyone else seen adorable photos of girls with fake mustaches? Photos like this one:
Well, I’ve fallen head over heels in love with the idea. And when I get something in my head, I MUST DO IT. So after a fruitless search for little fake mustaches for me and my bridesmaids, I decided that if no one was making these things, then I would make them for myself. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, after all! Now, when I mentioned this idea to my mother, she looked at me like I had taken a big swig of crazy juice. But lo and behold, Martha Stewart makes a template for these bad boys. And if it’s good enough for Martha, then it’s surely good enough for me!
So for all you brides who are with me and think that this is amazingly cute, here’s what I did to make my very own mustaches on a stick.
First things first. I bought a package of wooden dowels at the craft store for amazingly cheap. A package of 12 of these dowels was $.99. Not too shabby.
I then printed off Martha Stewart’s mustache templates. I thought the “Imperial” style was the cutest, so I went with that one, but she has a couple of different styles available.
Once the mustaches were traced and cut out of black cardstock, I simply hot glue gunned them to the wooden dowels. You want to make sure that you glue the dowel to one side, so that when you hold up the mustache to your face, the stick isn’t in the middle. I chose the left side.
