DIY Little Man Mustache Centerpiece

Sometimes finding the perfect centerpiece for an event is like finding a needle in a haystack.....so why not make your own! This DIY centerpiece is easy to do, super cute and the perfect compliment to a Little Man Mustache Birthday party.


The supplies: Wooden cutouts (paper cardstock is a good substitute), mustache & bow tie punch, popsicle or dowel sticks, glue gun, styrofoam, crinkle paper and a vase or pot. 

First I spray painted all the wooden cutouts and then I punched out the mustaches using black cardstock (any other color from your color palette would also be fine). Then I glued all the pieces together onto the sticks.

The next step is to make some graphic signs and labels. I use Adobe Illustrator, but you can also achieve the same look Microsoft Word. I designed these in the shape of a square so it's easier to cut and then glued them onto the dowel sticks with my glue gun.

The next step is to cut out the block of styrofoam and place it into the pot or vase. I got lucky and found these vases at Micheal's, but....luck doesn't always play out; therefore, you can buy regular pots from your local hard ward store and spray paint them.

The final step is to let your creative juices flow and assemble these lovelies to whichever way your heart sees fit!
