I am in love with this awesome gift idea that Meg from Brassy Apple is sharing today! What a fun gift idea for your neighbors and friends. I can’t wait to put this to use for our New Year’s Eve party this year. The kids are going to love it! These New Year’s Eve Photo props are a fun way to capture the excitement of the evening.
Hey – Megan here from Brassy Apple! You can always find me sewing and refashioning on my blog but I love to share my ideas for kids and families too!
I’ve come up with a fun gift to give your friends, family and neighbors for New Years Eve! A photo prop “kit” with a fun card and saying!
1 sheet of Stiffened Felt (brown, black or whatever color you’d like)
Bamboo Skewers (10″ long. check the baking aisle of your grocery store)
Hot Glue gun
Tall drinking glass ($1.00 store)
Crinkle filler (optional)
Step 1: Print the mustache template off on regular paper. Cut out the mustache templates and use them to trace onto the stiffened felt and cut out.
Step 2: Print off any banners, sign or quote bubbles you’d to as well on plain or colored cardstock. Cut out. You could back each sign with a glitter-ly or sparke-ly paper leaving a small border showing around each if you’d like.
Step 3: Using a hot glue gun adhere a skewer to the back of the mustaches and the signs. (Be sure to place the skewers off to one side)
Step 4: Print off the card and insert or attach some fun photos of your family! Then stuff the glass with some filler, insert the different ‘staches, signs and banners, attach the card with a ribbon and you are done!
(The card says – “We’d love to stay and chat but we “mustache” Happy New year!)
Hope you’ve enjoyed this idea! Get your ‘stache on! Your kids will love it! This is also a great gift to create and mail to someone. Just subtract the drinking glass and the filler! Family or friends far away would love to receive this package from you! Hop over to the Brassy Apple blog and check out my other free patterns and tutorials!
