wedding stuff: don't be caught in public with a naked upper lip!

this is totally not an original idea. but we really needed some fun injected into our stiff black and white colour scheme. cue in moustaches on a stick. if you're a fan of wedding blogs, like yours truly, every other wedding has them! that and photobooths!! done to death. 

but when put on a vote a few weeks ago with some of my bridesmaids, one put her life on this. a wedding is never complete without faux moustache, i quote!! so we're jumping on the moustache bandwagon! weehee..

don't you just love brides with a sense of humour?

vivienne westwood approves.

plush moustaches! from here.

cute screen printed teacup. from here.

so one afternoon, i download a moustache shape from the internet, traced it on word, print and cute along the lines with a pen-knife.

then trace the shapes on felt. you'll need (2) pieces of felt per stick, then use your hot glue gun and attach a wooden chopstick to the edge of it!! easy peasy...

and.... we have moustaches on a stick!!

p.s. sorry about the messy background and very incredulous-looking model. this is him typing up some super important document for work while multi-tasking for his wife. 
he really likes this idea. (i think..)
