I love beards. I have always wanted one! I was looking at Halloween costumes for research and I came across this dwarven beard on Think Geek and really wanted one. But then I thought: I can make that beard out of yarn! BOOM. Dwarven yarn beard, here we go!
I wanted a full yarn beard that was comfortable to wear and easy to make - and I didn't want to make any trips to the store. :D My first draft was made from red yarn and I really over complicated it, but I finally figured out the best way to do it.
And then best part about this yarn beard? It's light and easy to wear (thought I can't promise your upper lip won't sweat. HA!), and you can also make it in an afternoon!
There are more photos on the last step, too.
P.S. We've got some other fantastic yarn beards around the site - if you want a more rigid and full beard, check out this instructable by Lux Mirabilis - SUCH A GOOD BEARD.
And that's really it! Make sure to have a camera or mirror nearby the whole time to check the fit. :D
