I Mustache You a Question”¦

”¦ did you really think we’d have a photo booth without making mustaches on sticks?

This was a super-quick project in June. I’m going to direct you to Tiffany Kelley Photography, where she has done a tutorial, and the most important part, a template.

I downloaded the template, resized it to the size I wanted, and printed it out. Then I cut out the paper mustaches. Then I held them against some stiffened craft felt I had and cut them out. I didn’t bother tracing them, I just held a paper mustache tight against the felt with my left hand while my right hand wielded the scissors.

Soon, I had 6 felt moustaches:

(I made one enormous, for extra comic value.)


Then, I hot-glued them to some spare ribbon wand sticks I had lying around. One thing to take note of: I pressed the stick really hard into the blob of glue, so it would be nice and sturdy for intoxicated guests to use. This was fine with the black felt, but on the light grey, that pushed the glue through to the front. I pulled that one off, cut it out again, and used less pressure and it was fine.

Another handy tip: when cutting the ”˜staches out of the black felt, it was hard to see the template that printed out black. I cut one whole mustache before realizing that I could just reverse the piece of paper so the white side was towards me. It makes no difference to the shape you cut out! I got a little slow as the days led up to the wedding—what can I say?

I can’t wait to see the photos of these babies in action!

Are you over mustaches yet? Or do you think they’re too hilarious (like I do!)?

    OMG This.is.HYSTERICAL. I would die laughing. As a guest, I would have too much fun. As the bride, I would love those pictures forever!

    We are thinking of doing a destination wedding, and maybe I will do something similar for guests to take pictures with on the beach. What else is there besides moustaches?

    PS. So funny that your scissors are called ‘cutter bee’.

    I just made these last week using the same template. I showed them to my parents and my dad was having a jolly old time playing around with the different mustaches in front of the mirror. It was hilarious! I can’t wait to use them at our wedding!

    I love that you used felt…I made mine out of black card stock. Hmm, felt is clearly better. No, must resist urge to remake mustaches!

    I am so not over the mustache trend – I love it and maybe always will! I’ll be making these for our booth as well!

    I know mustaches have been done over and over, but honestly… they are SO much fun that I don’t think they’ll ever get old. We had them at our wedding and the guests went bananas with them. Yours will, too!

    @Mrs. Trail Mix: Agreed, I totally laughed out loud!

    I never tire of seeing these in photobooths, and I can’t wait to see how they were used in yours!

    Best.Title.Ever. If we had a photo booth I’d totally rock the super-sized one.

    I would have never figured out to just turn the paper over. And I don’t have the excuse of having pre-wedding brain (just yet). Those mustaches are fantastic!
