Are you tired of the mustache trend yet? I'm not! Especially when it comes to adorable baby accessories! These mustaches are upgraded with a little bit of black glitter to give them something extra while still being manly.
- Baby onesie (get a 5 Pack of Onesies here)
- Tulip Soft Fabric Paint in Black
- Black glitter
- Foam pouncer (This set from Martha Stewart is my fave)
- Martha Stewart Decoupage Medium, Gloss Finish (You must use this brand so that it is machine washable!)
- Scrap paper
- Contact paper
Step 1: Prep
It's important to wash and dry your onesie first to remove any sizing from the manufacturing process.
Step 2: Make a stencil
Draw a mustache shape onto a scrap piece of paper. Fold the paper in half down the midline and cut it out (this is so the mustache is symmetrical).
Place it on your onesie to be sure you like the scale of it. Make adjustments as necessary.
Once you have your paper mustache just right, trace it onto a piece of contact paper. Use scissors to cut it out. Be very careful to keep the lines smooth - this will be your stencil!
Step 3: Paint
Peel the contact paper stencil from its backing and adhere it to the onesie. Press well around the edges to ensure good adhesion. Insert a piece of paper inside the onesie to prevent bleed through.
Use the pouncer to apply paint inside the stencil, using a gentle up and down motion.
Step 4: Glitter
While the paint is still wet, sprinkle glitter over the top. Press down on glitter with your finger to ensure good adhesion with the paint. Shake off excess.
Peel off stencil and discard. Set aside to dry at least 4 hours or overnight.
Step 5: Seal
To keep the glitter from flaking off, seal it with the Martha Stewart decoupage medium. Paint a thin layer over the glitter mustache. Set aside to dry for 72 hours. Your outfit is now safe to be machine washed in cool water on the gentle cycle.
