Tired of waiting forever to grow the beard of your dreams? Does your facial hair come in all patchy? Want to look like a Viking? Then this is the Instructable for you.
Bear in mind that this is not the sort of project that you start in the morning and have a foot long beard to wear out at brunch. But, with a little patience, you can be the envy of your follically challenged friends.
Step 1: Materials
- Scotch tape
- Plastic mesh board ($2 at Walmart)
- Big ol' ball of red Yarn ($10 at Walmart).
I chose all red yarn as I was originally building this beard as part of a Stoick the Vast costume. Unfortunately, I didn’t finish the rest of the costume in time for Halloween.
Step 2: Bits and Pieces
Step 3: The Needle
As I have never crocheted, sewed or amigurumied before, I couldn’t figure out a better way to do this part. I’m sure there are lots of crafters out there shaking their heads, but sometimes you have to make do with what you’ve got. I rolled the end of my yarn in a piece of scotch tape to create a needle. Works fine for threading through the mesh holes and you can keep “sharpening” the tip by cutting it at an angle with the scissors.
