Materials Needed:- Self-Adhesive Felt (Found a variety pack in the kiddie crafts section at the Super Walmart. Makes this project SO MUCH easier!)
- Poster board (or any other sturdy cardboard... you can even recycle your cereal boxes for this one!)
- Small, thin dowels
- Pencil & eraser
- Glue gun & glue sticks (not pictured)
- Japanese Masking Tape or Fabric Tape (totally optional)
I decided to use the black, white and brown felt for this project. See? Self adhesive =)
STEP 1: Peel off the paper from the back of the self-adhesive felt.
STEP 2: Place felt onto poster board. I found that the easiest way to do this is by exposing a small area of the adhesive and placing it onto the poster board. Then slowly removing the paper, while smoothing the felt onto the poster board.
STEP 3: Cut out the felt and poster board, taking care to cut the poster board as close to the felt edge as possible. (Mainly because you're gonna need to know where the edge of your felt is for Step 4.)
STEP 4: Once you've cut out your felt, flip it over to the poster board side. Draw out your 'staches!
mustache templates out there waiting to be discovered!
STEP 5: Done drawing? Well, cut those babies out!
STEP 6: When all your mustaches have been cut, take your dowels and wrap them up with some Japanese masking tape. Or you can even bust out your handy dandy fabric tape! You can even paint your dowels--whatever strikes your fancy. This step is totally optional, of course. If you don't have any tape or paints on hand, or simply like the way your dowel looks as is, skip to Step 7.
STEP 7: Take your dowels and hot glue them onto the back of your mustaches. For added security, once the glue is dry, reinforce with some tape. (any tape you have is fine!)
STEP 8: Have some fun and take lots and lots of pictures!
