A round-up of top-lip inspired crafts in honor of "No-Shave November."
Mustache crafts have become surprisingly feminine. From pastel headbands and floral quilts to delicate baby booties and cross-stitched hairpins, these crumb catchers have certainly got us asking why boys should have all the fun in November, which has become the De facto month of the year to celebrate lip warmers thanks to Movember's efforts to raise money for prostate cancer with mustache-growing campaigns.
