The mustache trend

Everybody's doing it!

and so are we!!

but since I refuse to buy anything I think I can make myself (and these suckers are expensive!)
I bought 8 packs of polymer clay, and molded them myself!

I baked them at about 200 for a half hour or so... according to the package

I stuck a stick in them before I baked them, and after they were done, 
I put a little glue on the end of a stick
and voila!

Blue Doilies

Is it so important that they have to be blue??
And seeing as I couldn't find any blue paper doilies, I dyed my own - and it was worth it!

It's actually really easy!
I had an old metal pan lying around, the kind you buy for picnics and whatnot... 
Put just enough water to cover the doilies, and put a ton of food coloring in it.
I mean a ton. 

Let them soak for about 30 seconds, make sure to flip them once.
Take them out, pat dry with a paper towel, then set them out to dry

You will need at least one roll of paper towels!!!

They turned out great!
