Intro: Moustache Glass Markers
These markers will help your guests identify their drinking glassesduring parties(*), and the moustache shapes are sure to be a funny icebreaker.
In a hurry trying to find an idea for a quick, funny, last-minute present, I was inspired by the many moustache projects that can be found around here.
(*) Go green: instead of taking many disposable paper/plastic cups, reuse your drinkware!
Step 1: Needed Things
I had some scrap Plexiglas leftover from another DIY project.
You will need:
- 3mm thick plastic, or Plexiglas or plywood
- paper glue
- miniature clothespins (the smaller the better)
- power- or hand- jigsaw
- epoxy glue
- black paint
- sand paper, files
Step 2: Design, Print and Glue
Design your own moustaches or use the attached document.
You can use a vector drawing software (like Inkscape or OpenOffice.org Draw). Splines are fun to design moustaches.
Print and glue the design on the plastic.
Step 3: Cut, File and Sand Shapes
Cut the shapes.
Sand and file the sides until satisfied.
Step 4: Remove Paper and Paint Shapes
Soak the shapes into water for a couple of minutes until the paper comes off.
Sand the surfaces if you intend to paint the pieces.
Clean and paint the pieces.
Step 5: Glue
Glue the pieces to the clothespins. Allow to cure completely.
Step 6: Use!
Clip the moustaches on any kind of drinkware, and sip with distinction!
