Today I'm sharing something I've made that had no inspiration from Pinterest. I hope you guys don't mind. :)
I LOVE wearing flowers in my hair. As my collection has grown I needed a place to store them, so I made a simple little holder one day with a wooden letter and a ribbon. After a few months of looking at it hanging up in the bathroom my boyfriend came to me with an idea. "Wouldn't it be funny if guys could have something like that but with fake mustaches instead of bows/flowers?" Of course it was too great of an idea to pass up, so we found a J (for Jamal) and made it happen.
I think it turned out so cute! The 'J' isn't as decorated as my 'V' but we couldn't decide on a color so we just left it with the finish it came with. The hardest part of this project was finding the mustaches to put on it. Luckily a friend of ours mentioned a local restaurant having a gumball machine full of them, so we made a stop one afternoon and loaded up.
My only complaint with this is that the mustaches curl up, so they're not as cute as they could be, but that could be fixed if I got some thicker ribbon to affix them to.
Speaking of ribbon, did you notice the detail on the ribbon used for this holder? Mustaches! A friend sent a piece of this in a package, and I had been saving it for the perfect project. I love it!
