That NBA Lottery Pick:
As you may figure, I'm a huge reader of the Tulsa World and when they decided to leave their readers with the possibility of looking like Thunder guard James Harden, we have to report it.
They decided to post this "cut-out James Harden beard" as a PDF file on their website and gave suggestions to their readers about how to wear them
Beard mask: Cut out beard. Attach tape at the ends to reinforce the paper and then poke small holes through the tape tabs. Tie pieces of string through the holes and tie at the back of your head.
Beard banner: Cut out several beards from papers and tape them to a string. Hang from a mantel or doorway where guests will be entering.
Beard fan(atic): Glue the beard cutout to cardboard, a manila folder or cardstock for stability and then cut out the cardboard. Glue the beard to a tongue depressor. Then, feel free to wave your beard in the air, like you just don’t care.
Beard centerpiece Cut out five beards and glue or tape them together at the sideburns, forming a circle. Use as a centerpiece on your party table around candles, serving bowls, etc.
