This Nose Warmer thing is getting out of hand. Or should I say, “out of face?” The next nose cozy needed to be even more hilarious and fun than the Snowman Carrot Nose Warmer.
So of course, I went straight to a favorite video game for my next inspiration.
The Mustache Nose Warmer is loosely base on the mustache of a famous plumber we all know and love. The nose is round and bulbous to add more character.
I love this one.
