I would say the mustache trend has been going on now for about 7 years and I don't see it dying down anytime soon. If you are a mustache lover or know someone who is, they'll get a super big kick out of these goofy pumpkins. The cool thing is they are probably the easiest thing to make EVER and you can have them done in 15 minutes flat! Perfect for a quick porch decoration or cute gift for the Halloween hostess. And for the record, this project is dedicated to my Daddy, my favorite mustached man!
First gather your supplies! You need: 2 pumpkins (1 medium, 1 small), 5 packs of faux mustaches (I got mine for $1 each at the Dollar Tree), and one bottle of Scribbles 3D Fabric Paint. Optional: Cute cat who is very photogenic.
For the large pumpkin, I simply removed the adhesive backing on the mustaches.
And firmly pressed them in place all over the pumpkin in a random pattern. I found that 5 packages (25 mustaches)was just the right amount for both of these projects.
For the small pumpkin, I simply slapped on the mustache, and used the Scribbles paint to add cute eyes and eyebrows. You can play with the design of his face. I wanted a sweet look, not a scary one. If you are wanting a happy or scary design for your pumpkin face, I suggest you look up "happy pumpkin", "cute pumpkin" or "scary pumpkin" in google image search. You'll find all kinds of fun faces to pattern your off of!
Here's a detailed look at the all-over mustache pumpkin.
And the cute little pumpkin man. I think he turned out cute with his handlebar mustache!
Thanks for letting me show off my flavor saver pumpkins today. LOL!
Until next time Swellions!
