SUPERHEROMASKS

Instead of party hats, I made all the kids superhero masks using this pattern. They also doubled as a party favor….All you need is some felt, hot glue, a sewing machine and some thin elastic.

Felt is in credibly inexpesnive, and I was able to fit three masks on one sheet. I purchased about a yard of elastic on etsy. I didn’t do them double sided, like she did in the pattern; I just used hot glue to affix the different colors and used my sewing machine to sew on the elastic.
These were great for all ages – we had babies wearing them, all the way to teenage brothers and parents!

COMICBUNTING
This weekend we had a superhero themed birthday for my little guy, who turned four. It was a huge success, and I’ll share with you some of the DIY elements I did, as well as some of the games we played throughout the week.

First up: Comic book bunting.

I went to half price books and bought six comic books for 25 cents each. I also spray mounted comic books on the back of the invitation.  But for the bunting I just cut out a bunch of triangles, folded them over some yarn and used hot glue to keep them in place. We hung these from the ceiling above the tables and they made the perfect decor. It was super easy and inexpensive and something you can whip up in no time!
