I Mustache You A Question...

Do you like my new key holder?
I have seen these popping up everywhere and finally decided to make one.  The old keychain holder I had kinda sucked, so I needed one that was more fun!
I found a mustache silhouette that I liked, enlarged it on my computer and traced it onto freezer paper.  This is the silhouette I used:
I cut out my mustache, and I was going to trace it onto my wood but it kept moving.  So I took the lazyman's way out and tacked the freezer paper onto the wood, sprayed around it lightly with black spray paint, then traced around the  image that was left.
I used my jigsaw to cut it out.  It got a little tricky in the curvy part of the stache, but I managed not to lose any appendages!
I gave it a nice sanding, stained it with one coat of Minwax Dark Walnut, then screwed on my hooks!
I bought a nice block of wood from Lowe's for $10.  I'll be able to make two key holders out of it and I have a little wood left over.  Since I used the hooks from my old key holder, this only cost me five bucks!
I love the imperfections of the wood!
Now I've got a funky little key holder!  I'm thinking these will make some good Christmas presents!
