Holidays can sometimes tend to stress us out. All of the planning, shopping, cooking, baking, and visiting! Try to make it a point to take some time out of the hustle and bustle to de-stress with some fun photo time! Last year I made some mustaches-on-a-stick, and we went outside and had A LOT of fun! I knew I wasn’t going to get the traditional smiling pictures, but I was totally okay with that, because they were having a blast, and the giggly faces are much more real than some of their forced smiles!
These were very easy to make! I went to Walmart and spent about $2 on some felt and wooden dowels (you will also need a glue gun and glue sticks). I found a template online, and started cutting my felt! I actually cut two of the same ‘stache so that I could glue the dowel in between the two pieces and make it a bit stronger.
This year, I am going to cut out some red lips, a white beard and maybe even a turkey beak with a wattle! (not sure where that blue piece of felt came from, hehehe)
Get out there and make sure to have some fun during the holidays! And if you make some mustaches-on-a-stick, I would love to see your fun photos (link back here)!
