Fun and Easy DIY Mustache Straw Toppers

I am so excited to be joining forces with some of the most creative girls on the internet today and tomorrow for a fun Halloween DIY blog hop. I love any excuse to craft something up, and working with these girls is the best! If you are joining me from Bird’s Party blog, welcome!  I just love all of the creative things Bird comes up with…so many fun parties and DIY ideas.  Well, if you are new to the blog, let me just tell you that I LOVE Halloween.  The best part about Halloween…well besides the free candy ;), is getting the chance to dress up and be silly. It’s always so fun to see the creative costumes that people come up with. With Halloween just around the corner I thought it would be fun to share this quick and easy DIY Mustache Straw toppers tutorial so that if you are having a party, you can add these to the party table for some added fun and whimsy.  These mustache straw toppers are perfect for so much more than just Halloween too.  You can use them for parties all year round.

I was wandering the Halloween aisles at Target the other day and they had all of these fuzzy mustaches.  They came in a pack of 4-6 depending on the size you wanted, and had adhesive on the back so you can peel and stick them to your face.  Well, needless to say, that’s where the idea for these easy DIY mustache straw toppers was born.  I picked up a couple of packages and brought them home to get to work.


DIY mustache straw toppers step 1

  1. Adhesive mustaches (This pack is an awesome deal)
  2. Black Cardstock (Work with the same color cardstock as your mustaches.  It helps to hide any imperfections.)
  3. A pencil
  4. Scissors
  5. Straws (I used these)


Step 1: Trace your mustaches onto your cardstock

Step 3: Remove the protective cover from the adhesive and adhere the sticky side of the mustache to the straw, leaving about 1.5-2 inches of straw above the mustache. Cover the back of the mustache (where the exposed adhesive is, with your paper mustache and trim away any excess that is showing from the front.

Printable mustache straw toppers are readily available and fun too, but using these fuzzy mustaches makes them funnier I think.  More like a costume.
