Mustaches have taken over just about every aspect of our lives and can be found in home decor designs and on clothing, accessories and more. My daughter and her friends are totally obsessed, so when she was invited to a mustache-themed party, I knew I had to create something fun and unique for the birthday girl. This fun piece will make great wall hanging .

  • Chipboard mustache
  • Glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • Felt
  • Ribbon
  • Hot glue gun

  • X-Acto Knife
  • Bowl (optional)
  • Sandpaper (optional)

 

Instructions:

Start by covering the mustache with Mod Podge and placing it on the paper. Rub it flat to get rid of any bubbles.

Next, you’ll use your X-Acto Knife and scissors to trim around the edges. Mine was tricky since it was a curvy mustache. I used a small piece of sandpaper to clean up the edges and inside the curves.

After the edges are all cleaned up and smooth, you can now Mod Podge over the top of the paper. This seals it and makes it look finished.

While the mustache is drying you can now glitter your letter. Using the same method of gluing you’ll brush on Mod Podge and glitter it into a bowl to catch your extra.

Figure out your placement of the letter and you can attach it with the hot glue gun.

Turn your mustache over and hot glue your ribbon on as well. Then, using the felt, cut two small rectangles to hot glue over the ribbon ends. This makes it look clean on the back.

    I’m really not into the mustache craze… but I have to admit this is kind of cute!

    Very fun and cute Latrice!

  3. This is adorable! This project could easily be tailored to a Christmas theme. Maybe some round chipboard could serve as ornaments that would be super fun to mod podge with glitter and paper.

    I mustache admit (see what I did there?) that this is a quirky, yet fun way to add something unique to one’s living space. Mustaches were trending when this blog was posted back in October and they still are five months later. There is something about the overall shape of the mustache that people seem to be attracted to when it comes to crafting and decorations. This DIY draft is beyond adorable and a great gift for many ages. In addition, I found the comment above about decorating the mustache for various holidays to be creative and a definite must for big holidays. Since it is mustache March I could not resist reading this blog and I’m happy I did because it looks like I just filled a good amount of my time with some mustache crafts!
