Moustache on a Stick

For a photo booth prop box, I made some home-made props of my own.

How to make Moustache on a Stick

Step 1)  On cardboard or other firm paper or backing, draw your moustache.

Step 2)  Cut out your moustache.

Step 3)  Trace your moustache cutout on black felt (or any color!) with a paint pen or other pen that will show up.

Step 4)  With a glue gun, affix your felt to the cardboard (backwards so it matches exactly and the paint or marker will not be on the outside).

Step 5)  Glue tongue depressor to the backing so you can hold up the 'stache to your face. Be sure to glue some to the left side and some to the right side since not everyone is right handed.

Step 6)  Play around with your creation!  Make sure it fits!

Step 7)  Make other things - uni-brows, goatees, beauty marks, sideburns, whatever!  Have fun!  Also, make sure you have the messiest kitchen possible for pictures.  Be doubly sure not to shower after your workout.

Here are some of my finished products.  I labeled them on the back stuff like "FuManChu," "Wyatt Earp," "Beauty Mark," which was very cleverly used as the "Enrique" at the party.  SO FUN!

Love this!

My husband and I were just talking last night about how fun it would have been to have a photo booth at our wedding. So many fun memories, I'm sure!

There is something that I can't *quite* put my finger on that made me laugh out loud when I saw your unibrow picture! I absolutely love it, and this is a great idea!
