Make your next {celebration} a MUSTACHE SMASH! + Coupon Code

MUSTACHES and LIPS have been popping up everywhere all year! Who knew that facial hair could be so popular? I wonder who kicked off this fascinating trend and how it got to be so huge on Etsy. I've seen this trend on t-shirts, key-chains, jewelry, pillows, mugs and more. People seem to love these items for gifts, parties and wedding receptions.

Photobooth Party on a Stick

Lots of couples love the idea of adding in some humor and fun to their beautiful wedding photos. Having a set of mustache and lip props handy at the reception allows for dress-up time for grown-ups! Some couples like to have them out by a photo booth for their guests to play with. A funny mustache has a way of making a formal photo look magical.

For my holiday season this year, I decided to make a simple glassware design that I could whip up in a shorter amount of time and have at a lower price point than my custom designs.

I decided the mustache trend would be a great place to start. I made a Mr. Mustache design for the men and a Mrs. Lips design for the ladies. Within a week or two of having the designs in my shop I had buyers select the listing and customize their glassware types. Some wanted all mustaches on beer mugs and some couples chose to have a mustache and lips set on red wine glasses. I can't wait to see if this design is popular throughout the next year. Here's a look into my studio while I worked on my holiday orders.

I start each glass with a bold black outline so it
will also look good from the back!

Next, I paint on the color to fill in the lips or the mustache.
For the last step, I paint the black outline again on the top,
to polish off the look. I bake each glass for durability
and then ship them to you! Get ready to PARTY!
