My sister (she's 15, which is exactly 1/2 my age) and I really want to get the 'moustache tattoo', cause we like to talk in a funny 'foreign moustache man' voice.  Here's the tattto: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finger_mustache_tattoo
and, for lots of funny examples: http://fingerstache.ning.com/

In the meantime, what's better than a big funky moustache, always at hand, in the form of a necklace?  See, it's a moustache, disguised as a necklace, to disguise your face!

See, here is your preview:


Step one:

Cut the 'stache from a piece of Shrinky plastic, I used the entire 8.5" length

Step Two:


Step Three:

Decorate with sharpies, colored pencils or paintpens (my choice).  I only colored it on one side, so it has a brown side and a black side!

Step 4:
Punch a hole in one side (or 2 if you want the chain to connect both. I didn't, I chose one)

Step 5:
Put it on cardboard, and a baking sheet, and bake

Step 6:
Get mad when it curls up

Step 7:
Flatten with a spatula and finish baking

Step 8:
Let it cool, then try it on for size!
Brown side:


Black side:


Then, make a mustache treasury on Etsy, and roar hysterically when it makes the front page!


Step 9:
Tie on a ribbon, chain, etc. to make it a necklace!  I used lime green ribbon.

Step 10:
Package (make a cute tag or card) and gift!:



Seriously, the easiest, cheapest, and funniest gift you can give ALL season! Cheesy

Now, go make one and ROCK your 'STACHE!

Glad you guys are amused.  I'm into making/buying as many handmade gifts as possible this year, and this is one of my fave things I've made so far.  Super ridiculous and super AWESOME at the same time. Smiley

I love these! Where did you find black shrink plastic, though?

I think I got a 'value' pack that had a variety.  It's NOT ShrinkyDink Brand, it was an off-brand.  I think I got it at Michaesls?  Can't remember, sorry.

Thanks for the added info. Maybe on my way home from work tomorrow (once I shovel myself out from all of the snow that dumped on me overnight Tongue ), I'll swing by Michael's and have a peek. These are just too fun to ignore!!

ROFL! People at work went nuts drawing 'staches on their fingers at work one day. They snapped a ton of pictures too. If I recall correctly a stuffed monkey also sported a post-it note mustache at happy hour that day.

Fantastic idea and I bet your sister will get a big kick out of it!
