We have some pretty great super heroes among us, so why not DIY a fantastic party for them? You won’t need any “crafting skills” to complete these super accessible idea to celebrate! Up first are the NO sew super hero capes. With some felt, scissors, Velcro and spray glue, your disguise can be ready to go in no time! Save even more time and use your Cricut Maker.
No Sew Capes
Displaying some ready to go capes and masks is simple with just some twine (you can use yarn- string- rope) and taping it into place with some tape. We added a fun mirror so that our Superheroes could see themselves once disguised. Using my Cricut I grabbed some yellow, black, blue and red vinyl to complete this look. There is a step by step video on mybluprint.com and you can search for my class “make your own party decor” to see it all come to life!
For those big kids who are able to create their own, we laid out all of the pieces needed to embellish and create a one of a kind look. Using various shapes like stars, lighting bolts and extra fabric to make anything they wanted.
DIY Superhero Photo Backdrop
For all of those party loving parents who love to grab the picture perfect photo- this backdrop is for you! All you have to do is use foam core board and double sided tape to attach these star balloons in layers to create this eye catching focal point. We grabbed the cityscape boxes to make it look as if our superheroes were flying over the city!
Cityscape Centerpiece and Props
Let’s talk more about this city skyline! Have some extra boxes, spray paint, and some construction paper? Perfect because that is all you need to re create this look! What a great centerpiece as well as photo prop you can create with such simple supplies. Watch how I make these boxes on Mybluprint.com and search for “Bring the Party.”
Boom! Krunch! Wham! No matter what way you slice it- this cake by Joshua John Russel is a superhero kid’s dream come true. Man About Cake star created a fondant and chocolate life like topper to look just like our birthday boy! Of course we had to add some sort of fruit to garnish the cake to make ourselves look like we were purposely sugar up the kids to send them home.
Pizzas disused as shields (not pictured) and popcorn were on the menu for this birthday boy. I mean, what else do superheroes even eat? Renting a popcorn maker is super easy and can be found in most party rental locations. Bags and signs from Oriental trading for the win!
Before the masks came off, each superhero was sent out with a goodie bag and a custom cupcake holder to take their custom decorated treat home. We added names to each box to make each hero feel even more super.
Oh the good part! Joshua had the idea to have an interactive treat where he would decorate cupcakes with each guest. While this all sounded great, as a mom of three, all I could see were sprinkles every where.
Controlling the chaos was needed and I came to the rescue! Using painting palettes we could give each person their own rationed sprinkles and cupcakes in the center. Not only did it help (no it did not completely save us) but dang was it cute for a photo!
The kids loved the decorating and so did us adults! It was so fun to help and interact with the masked heroes and save the day as the “cool grown ups.”
Time to Save the Cake!
Don’t even act like I’m going to “save a few calories” and NOT eat a piece of this amazing cake.. because I didn’t. I ate this entire piece that my co host, Joshua, didn’t think I would. It was delicious.
Not all heroes wear capes, Joshua does and I made them so I think we are close enough! We had a great time designing and creating this party together and hope that you head over to mybluprint.com and watch all of the Bring the Party episodes and see even more fun!
