It's Party Time

My uber -crafty friend Gwen made the cutest little Mario-inspired birthday party decorations. 
She's one of the most creative gals I know, and has one of the most generous hearts of anyone you'll ever meet.

I just had to share them with you.

Don't you just love these mustaches?  What a fun party-favor for the kiddo's to play with and take home as a favor.  (The also make great pirate mustaches  -  I've seen them in action too.)  Gwen cut the mustache shape out of wool felt, machine-stitched around the edges, added a little stuffing, then stitched them the rest of the way closed.  Insert a chop-stick or bamboo skewer to finish.  (Sorry, no pattern available  -  just free hand your best  'stache.)

The pipes are PVC pipes from the plumbing department at your favorite hardware store, spray painted in Mario colors.
