Shaina from Food for My Family recently came for a visit — both to hang out and to take family photos for us. Among the many fun things she brought with her were a pack of cardboard mustaches, glasses and lips to use as photo props.
The girls were so excited to play with these, and I decided to make some stencils of my own so that we could create sturdier versions made out of stiff felt rather than paper that gets bent up and ruined.
These would make great photo props for your Christmas card photo, or use them as stocking stuffers!
I couldn’t resist sharing this series of photos we took earlier this week. They’re such a good reflection of each of our girls personalities!
- stiff felt or cardstock
- printable disguise kit templates
- 1/8″ dowel
- hot glue
Print the disguise kit templates and cut them out. Trace the shapes onto your felt or cardstock and cut out. Or use double-sided tape to secure them to the felt so you can cut without tracing.
Lay right side down and hot glue the dowel to one corner of each shape. Be sure to think about whether they should be right- or left-handed; I accidentally made all of mine for the left hand!
Let the glue dry and then have fun!
Join us as we celebrate 101 Days of Christmas with new DIY projects, gift ideas, traditions and more every day from now through Christmas!
