Every Christmas my sons' school holds a craft bazaar for the children, and I use every spare moment in the weeks beforehand making things to sell. I make most things using crochet, and I've posted those on the crochet board. However, after seeing all the cool moustache things on Craftster, I thought it would be fun to make some for the kids. I had a few scraps of fur left over from other projects, so I cut them into simple moustache (and goatee beard) shapes. I cut out the same shape in matching felt, sewed a length of shirring elastic through that, then glued the fur and felt together. I marketed them as 'Instant Disguises' - they were a great hit with the kids!

This is hysterical. I may have to try this with my students. I'd love to see a photo of a group of children covered in fake facial hair!

Thanks - it was funny seeing which kids liked them. Some bought two and turned them into eyebrows! They are very quick and easy to make, and good for using up small pieces of fur.

1. Cut fur into moustache or small beard shape.
2. Cut felt of the same colour into the same shape.
3. Cut a piece of thin elastic to the right length - so it will fit snugly around a head and can be knotted into a circle.
4. Thread elastic onto a large needle and sew through the felt, in one side and out the other, not too close to the ends of the moustache.
5. Knot the elastic and move it around so that the knot is against the felt.
6. Glue the fur and felt together, with the knot on the inside.
7. Instant disguise!
