10-Minute Project: Framed Moustache Art

I'm all for quick and easy projects, so when I visited my friend Derek in Portland last week, I couldn't help but notice some of the new art hanging in his bathroom. These framed moustaches remind me of Victorian hair art, a strange and wonderful fad during the mid-1800's when human hair was used to create jewelry and other mementos.

Derek has followed suit and used human hair moustaches for this project, which I think creates a really weird and awesome look. Often used for theatrical productions, they're not all that expensive; you can find a good selection at your local costume shop or online.

Using your pick of background paper (Derek chose a classy-looking crinkled gold) and a suitable frame, peel off the 'stache, stick it as desired, cut paper to size, and voila! Instant decor.
