Our family went with a Dr. Seuss theme for Halloween this year. My husband’s pick was the Lorax and my job was to come up with a DIY costume for him. I had come across a picture that linked to a blog of a great and easy idea. The blog didn’t have a tutorial, but I figured I could recreate it and share how I did it here. The project is super simple and only requires a few items.
Foam sheet in yellow
Yellow or orange sunglasses
Glue gun with clear glue stick
Paper and Pencil.
Step 1: On a piece of paper I did a rough draft of how large I was going to make his mustache and eyebrows. There is a hole made from the top of the mustache and the nose piece from the sunglasses. The only tricky part was making sure my husband’s nose fit in the hole and the mustache wasn’t too high and bothering him.
Step 2: Once I had the perfect size on paper, I traced it on the yellow foam sheet and cut it out.
Step 3: I got lucky and found cheap $6 yellow sunglasses at our party store. In this step, carefully pop out the lenses of the sunglasses. Now you are ready to glue on the foam mustache and eyebrows. The nice thing about working with a glue gun is if your placement is off by a little you can wait until it dries peel it off and re-glue it.
