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 .
- Paper (I got mine from Paper Source)
- Chipboard letter
- Chipboard mustache
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
- Hot glue gun
- X-Acto Knife
- Bowl (optional)
- Sandpaper (optional)
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.
There are so many shapes out there with which you can do this. I’m so excited to give this as a gift and see my daughter’s friend’s reaction. It truly is a fun customized piece that any kid would love to get. I can’t wait to make more. Christmas is just around the corner!
