Super Fun Mustache Necklace Craft for Kids

OK, I have to say, this is probably the coolest kids’ craft we’ve ever done.  Someone linked to these mustache necklaces that were on sale, and after giving it a quick look-see, I figured we could make our own.  Here’s how we did it.  (Also, you’ll see a couple of variations at the bottom, so if you don’t want to get as crazy with the jewelry aspect, you can still totally make them with your kiddos.)

What you’ll need for this kids mustache craft:

  • Shrink film
  • Marker
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Baking sheet
  • Baking paper
  • Necklace (pictured is a chain from the craft store, but you can also use elastic string and beads)

When you shrink them, they’ll end up being about 1/3 to 1/2 the size they start out.


We weren’t sure what size would be best, so we experimented with a few.

What I Learned the Hard Way: While the chain idea is cool, I think the elastic ones with the beads turned out looking the best.  There’s even some special elastic at the craft store that won’t get all stretched out after you’ve pulled on it to put the mustache under your nose a few times.
