DIY mustache on a stick!

Ezra's third birthday is in June and I've been trying to get my ducks in a row ahead of time since last year we could never get organized enough to throw his party since Michael was always flying here and there, so this year I've buckled down and hope to make it great to make up for last year. The party is cowboy themed so I wanted to have little mustaches for people to wear b/c I think they make such cute photos. Now I see them everywhere online but decided to make some myself.
Here's how I did it:

This is a printable template that I wanted to share for all those who are interested. Just click on the image to enlarge it and then you should be able to just print it directly or save it to your computer.


First I drew the mustache and cut it out and traced lots of them onto card stock and then made copies.


Next I bought some sticky backed black felt pages for $0.99 from a craft store and stuck it to the paper leaving my traceings showing.



I then used my craft knife and cutting mat to cut out the mustaches:


My sweet hubby pitched in as well with the cutting:



Then I attached a bamboo skewer which I purchased from our local grocery store with a dab of hot glue to the back of each mustach:


Michael obliged me and modeled the final looks:



He even decided to go for the "unibrow" look:


So there you have it. These are lots of fun for any party or occasion. Plan to check back in June to see the "staches" at work at Ezra's party and the cute favor table set up I have in mind :)
