Mario & Luigi Mustache DIY Simple Hack for Halloween + Free SVG & PDF Files!

Sharing is caring!

It’s Halloween time again and I have an awesome Mario Mustache DIY for you!  Not just Mario’s mustache, but Luigi’s, too! 

I’m including SVG files of both mustaches so if you have a Cricut Maker this DIY will be lightning quick.  You can cut them out by hand as well, it just takes a little more time. 

Keep reading for the free SVG files and printable patterns below.

2019 New and Improved Luigi Mustache (ignore the white elastic, I ran out of black! I’ll fix it before Halloween) Also, it looks better if he wears it over his ears, but he didn’t want to. Kids…

My kids have been obsessed with the Mario Bros. Since FOREVER. 

Last year my son dressed up as Mario.  This year, he’s going as Luigi.  He claims he’s going to be Freddie or Jason or something scary next year, but I’ll believe it when I see it. 

I’m pretty sure he’s going to alternate between Mario and Luigi until he’s too old for Trick-or-Treating! 

These are the costumes my kids have gotten for the last two years. Are you seeing a pattern?

    

 

One thing I have become an expert at is making Mario mustaches.  The stick-on ones that come with the costumes are TERRIBLE. 

They don’t stick, they’re too big, and half the time they aren’t even the right shape. 

To combat these disappointing mustaches, I made one for my son out of nice soft black felt with an elastic strap.  He wore that mustache until it fell apart (which took several months), so I made another, and another, and another. 

My daughter wanted one too, so I’ve made a lot of mustaches in the last year. 

On my birthday, I gifted myself a Cricut Maker.  I created an SVG file of Mario and Luigi’s mustaches so I could stop cutting them out by hand all the time and OMG. 

Game-changing. 

I used the Cricut Maker and the fabric cutting rotary blade to cut the felt, and it was like butta

Don’t worry if you don’t have a Cricut (although let me tell you if you’re big into crafts like me, it’s soo worth the investment!

I’m also including a printable PNG file of the pattern that you can use to cut out the mustaches by hand.  You’ll find both files linked below in the supply list.

If you need a Mario or Luigi mustache for a costume this Halloween (or all year round, like us), this project is for you!

To cut out mustaches with your Cricut Maker, you’ll need:

First, download your free file. (Don’t worry, I’ll wait.)

Once that’s done, here’s a quick little photo tutorial to walk you through uploading the files to Design Space.

Another thing I forgot to take a screenshot of was changing the blade type on the next screen.

After you pick your material size above and click Continue, it brings you to the screen where you choose your material.

I picked Felt, and the felt I’m using is the thicker craft felt. My Cricut auto chooses the fine point blade for felt, but I wanted to use the rotary blade instead.

To change to the rotary blade, click “Choose another blade” by the blade it has selected, and click the rotary blade.

I’m sure you can use the fine point blade, but I have the rotary blade and it cuts through felt so easily.

Last, load up your mat with your piece of felt and run it through your machine like normal.

Mustache Assembly

Poke a small hole on each side of the mustache by the corners. Don’t make it too close to the edge for maximum durability.

Thread your elastic through the hole and tie a knot in the end. I double the knot so it’s extra large and won’t end up pulling back out of the hole.

Now you’ll need to try the mustache on your future Mario or Luigi to get the right fit. You’ll want the elastic to be snug, but not uncomfortable.

Hold the elastic where you need the other knot to be (or you can mark it, I was lazy).

Run the other end of the elastic through the other hole and do the same knot on the other side where you marked (or eyeballed, like me).

Trim the excess elastic close to the knot. Done!

Finished DIY Mario Mustache

This year my daughter is dressing up as an inflatable T-Rex. Her costume is hilariously huge, you’ve got to see this!

Last year, she was Yoshi. She had a teeny tiny inflatable shell on her back and a giant creepy looking Yoshi face on top of her head. It looked like her face was in Yoshi’s mouth.

Tell me this isn’t slightly disturbing!

Please excuse the blurry dino head, it was really hard for her to keep it still.

My husband is 6’4″ and her costume is taller than him. It’s gonna be an interesting night of Trick or Treating with her wearing that behemoth!

Maybe she’ll be Godzilla next year!

On the topic of Yoshi costumes, I found this tutorial online on how to make a Yoshi costume totally DIY. He made the head out of paper mache and everything!

It’s hard to find a good Yoshi costume that doesn’t look like you’ve been eaten, so if you’re feeling crafty that DIY is a good one.

Here’s a picture of them trick-or-treating last year, I’ll update this post with this years picture once the big day rolls around!
