I'm going to be teaching these fun make-n-takes at Bazaar Bizaare in SF next weekend, so I thought I would also share the steps here.
The materials for this project are very simple:
- Moustache Rub-ons
- Paper Striped Straws
- Light Colored or Clear Overlays (I used Grandmas Wallpaper)
- Glue Dots or other adhesive
Step 1: Cut your overlay into 6" x 1.25" Strips. Also cut apart the moustaches you want to use.
Here's what your moustache should look like. You want about a 2" strip on the left side of the moustache to wrap around the straw. Make sure that strip is about .625" tall so there is room for the staple.
Step 3: Place a glue dot on the straw (this way the moustache doesn't slip down the straw) and wrap the overlay around the straw and staple. (A long stapler works best, not the small one I have in the photo)
That's it! These are fun & easy to make. Perfect for your Holiday parties!!
