Link Love: Mustache Crafts

Happy Movember! No, that’s not a typo – this month, men around the world will be participating in No-Shave November to support prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. To participate, one must start November with a clean face and neglect shaving for the next 30 days. The men participating in this event are called Mo Bros and the women who support them are referred to as Mo Sistas. According to the official Movember website, “In 2011, over 854,000 Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world got on board, raising $126.3 million USD.”

You might have noticed that mustache crafts happen to be super trendy right now. Why, you ask? Because overall, they’re pretty easy to make. Simply draw a mustache on a mug or cut one out of paper and add it to a plastic straw. Plus, you don’t have to be a world-class artist to draw a mustache.

You can add a mustache to just about anything. In fact, next time you host a dinner party, make a traditional centerpiece … with an whimsical touch. A Glittered Pear Centerpiece is perfect for the holidays or even a New Year’s Eve bash. Simply spray paint some plastic fruit and cover them in glitter. Once everything is dry, add a felt mustache and black dots for eyes.

Show your support for Movember and add a mustache to your next craft project. This a fun, simple DIY idea that’s perfect for every kind of crafter.

    I have absolutely noticed the mustache fad in full bloom. Mustaches are everywhere- on clothing, office supplies, and just about every hipster in a coffee shop sports their own variation of a mustache. While the trend initially confused me, I have to say the whimsy of the mustache is hard to dislike.

    While I’m fully aware of the mustache-craze, I didn’t connect it with No-Shave November until I read this post. I’m no stranger to “Movember”; in fact I fully enjoy watching the men around me compete in growing the best ‘stache before the close of the month. As a woman I don’t stand a chance against the fellow fellas in No-Shave November, but now I’m thrilled at the ideas posted which can allow me to participate as a Mo Sista!

    In thinking of where else to put a mustache so the public knows I’m a Mo Sista, my scarves come to mind as a worthy place.

    Thanks for the ideas!

    I didn’t connect the mustache craze with No-Shave November, either. I’m a fan of beards, so I like to see men grow out their facial hair this month.
    I wasn’t aware that some were doing it for a good cause. But now that I do know, all the more reason for me to support it!
    I like the mustache art and the mustache ring. So many ways to incorporate it and show support!
