First make a pattern.  To make a symmetrical design, trace half of your mustache on newspaper folded in half then cut it out.

Be sure to make another similar pattern piece for the back side of pillow.

Starting on one side of your pattern, add strips of duck tape completely covering pattern piece.

Start each strip of duck tape by overlapping the prior strip about 1/4″.

Cut an assortment of 1″ x 2″ and 1″ x 1″ pieces of black duck tape for “trim” to attach front to back.

TIP: Use the same color duck tape trim as the back piece for a cleaner look.

Place wrong sides together of mustache duck taped pattern pieces.  Start by folding one piece of duck tape “trim” from the front to the back.  Continue attaching front to back by lining up duck tape trim pieces on the front and then wrapping to the back.

The smaller duck tape “trim” pieces work better on the sharper curved edges.

Continue adding duck tape trim to the pillow leaving enough room on one side to add stuffing.
