I don’t know why, but count me in as one of those crafters who has a fascination with mustaches. (and a fear of fairies — but that’s another blog post). I couldn’t help myself when I decided this week that I needed to make even more DIY tree ornaments to go on our Christmas tree. Let’s go with a mustache, but make it sparkly green to go with the tree?! (because that says Christmas, right?)
I poured the mixed resin into our mustache silicone mold. After you do that, you are going to need to wait. You will need to check your resin every 30 to 45 minutes or so before moving onto the next step of making our DIY tree ornaments. The resin needs to be formed, but soft. It will be a bit sticky, but it shouldn’t be gooey. For the super clear resin, that point was 4 hours after mixing.
After allowing the pieces to fully cure, they adhered to the glass ornaments. I think the smaller mustache looks better on these ornaments. I would do larger ornaments for the larger mustache.
If you were to make these, what would you put on your DIY tree ornaments?
