{Dads Day DIY} Mustache Glasses

Hey friends, and happy Monday. Well, it'd be happier if I were still home in bed and on Summer Break like my kids! Being on a relaxed schedule makes the evenings and weekends so much sweeter though. I started brainstorming ideas for Father's Day (it's this Sunday!), and couldn't settle on just one...so this week is all about fun and easy projects to make for sweet Dad!

The mustache craze has been going on awhile, and I'm still on the bandwagon. I was smitten with this set of Mustache Shot Glasses, but thought it'd be more special (and cheaper!) to make our own.

{What You Need}

Set of glasses (these shooters were only a few dollars at Wal-Mart)
Sheet of Duck Tape Paper (less than $1 at craft stores)
Xacto knife
Print out of your favorite mustache shapes

I did a Google image search for  'mustache stencil,' and printed out my favorite ones. You may need to re-size to fit your glasses. Using this method, I taped the shape in place on the Duck Paper, with a cutting mat underneath, and carefully cut out the shapes with an Xacto knife.

Do yourself a favor and use a fresh blade, it makes a huge difference! (Coming from someone who just changed the blade for the first time in years!)

Then just peel and stick! I lined my glasses up when applying the decals so they'd be even. Being Duck Tape, they are attached freakishly well, but I'll probably still hand wash them.

We made these for Dad, but the kids already have big ideas to use them for mini-desserts and smoothies.

They crack up seeing themselves with mustaches.

They'd make a great housewarming gift, too, don't you think? And you could use the same method for any style of glass...just size the mustache proportionately.

I hope you're part of the mustache craze, because this isn't the last one you'll see this week! Do you know a guy who'd love a set of these?
