Cruisin' in the Fast Lane: Accessorizing the Photobooth
Ryan and I wanted wanted our photobooth to be kickass so we did our best to gather up some fun and playful accessories. We bought a chalkboard, an empty picture frame, some vintage hats, a parasol, and we made some mustaches.
To make these bad boys I bought some crafting fur at Hobby Lobby for $2.99. One piece was enough to create 2 of each design.
I then used a mustache template that I found here and traced the mustaches onto the back of the fur and onto brown felt using a sharpie. I then cut out the templates, sandwiched a dowel rod in between the piece of felt and mustache, and secured with hot glue. Finally I touched up the mustaches by trimming them up with facial hair scissors.
Mr. Riley and I dated for over four and a half years before tying the knot and were married on May 22 2010. Over half of the years we dated were long distance and now we are preparing for Mr. Riley's second year long deployment just six short months after our wedding. Our life is all over the map at the moment so feel free to jump on board and follow us down the road to matrimony.
