It’s one of our favourite days of the year – the day when we can wear whatever we want and eat candy without judgement.
We’re big fans of costumes, especially those that require a little brain power to come up with (costume puns are the best). But for those of you that have procrastinated and left the costume to the absolute last minute, here is a quick solution – the Hallowee’n ‘stache. Everyone loves a good mustache, right?
This is a super easy DIY project and, like Jen Loves Kev, you can use this party trick to make photos from any occasion a little more fun. All you will need is:
Black bristol board
Shish kabob sticks (you will need one for each mustache you make)
Pen or pencil
Start off the mustache-making by tracing a 1/2 inch curved swoosh (almost like an XL-sized Nike swoosh) on a pre-cut 3” x 2 ” piece of black bristol board. Cut the outline of the swoosh, and then fold into the remaining half of the bristol board piece. Trace the cut out pattern on to the bristol board, unfold the piece and cut out new traced part.
This is where you would trace the swoosh on the other side of the bristol board, making it a full mustache.
This will make both ends of the mustache even, like pictured above. Once you’ve traced your desired ‘stache pattern, keep using the first template to trace more mustaches and replicate them.
Next, take the shish kabob sticks, and attach them to the mustaches. Using small pieces of tape, attach the sticks to one side of the mustache. Stick placement is important – off to the side is best.
Make sure you secure the shish kabob stick securely to prevent any accidents
As you can tell, we love a good ‘stache On The Fourth Floor. Have a very Happy Halloween!
