Hey craftsters!! Our wedding is coming up in just 5 days! I am so excited! I'm finish the wedding dress up today. (hahah, last minute, I know) I'll post pictures about that soon. SOOO I wanted to share a tutorial for the mustaches on a stick I am making for the reception. They are great for pictures and we are also having a photo booth.
MY Website has the templates to download. Click here to check it out: http://lisawelge.com/blog/2009/08/our-wedding-how-to-make-a-mustache-on-a-stick/
There's more photos there too!Supplies
Craft felt (two sheets make about 3-5 ’staches)
Hot glue gun/glue sticks
Craft dowels (we used the 1/4″ size)
Mustachio Template (Click here to get it: http://lisawelge.com/blog/2009/08/our-wedding-how-to-make-a-mustache-on-a-stick/
)1. Cut your ’stache
You need two layers of each mustache for each stick. You can use the templates I created (can you spot the Mario ’stache?) or just freehand it.2. Get gluing
Line up your layers and start gluing with hot glue between the two layers about halfway through the mustache. In order to get the felt really stiff, I made sure to use a lot of glue so that it covered the entire shape, not just the edges.3. Stick it
Insert the stick on the side of the mustache, making sure to glue both sides of the stick to the felt. Finish up applying glue to the rest of the mustache and you are good to go! You can even tie on a ribbon to coordinate with your wedding colors.4. Take funny photos!
The mustache-on-a-stick makes for hilariously dignified photographs. The shots below are from the test run of the Photobooth we are putting together for the wedding. (Sorry they are slightly indecent). Have fun!
