So I work for a fairly dull federal agency in DC and I tend to entertain myself by making things, or decorating (you should see how many paper snowflakes I've made!). ANYHOW I'm not the only one at work who likes to entertain themself with silly things. So at our office holiday party some of the ladies challenged the guys to compete in a mustache competition.

Today is the judging and I decided to make "trophies" for the guys who participated (they'll also be receiving a disposable razor!). For my trophies I made little stuffed mustaches on sticks. I painted the sticks gold, as well as styrofoam blocks to make trophy holders. Here's a look at the results:

Mustaches in their holders:










I hope you enjoy my tribute to hirsute men! I definitely want to make more, they're so fun!

EDIT:

As Per Request a photo of the winners:

Haha.. you fool! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous being: Never get involved in a land war in Asia. Only slightly less well know is this: Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

Thanks! If you do end up making pencil toppers for your students you could always purchase those little removable erasers and glue them in to the mustache. That way your students can still use their pencils' original eraser and have the fun of a mustache!
