Batman DIY Party

Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Each time our kids have a birthday I am learning more and more about DIY parties. This year my goal was to come up with a Batman party that would be fun, affordable and moveable. Here are some easy ideas of how to do it yourself:
1. I got yellow and black balloons from Walmart. They were $0.97 for a bag.
2. We also bought this Batman from Walmart. It was on sale for $15. Great decor!
3. I printed this free Batman shield and glued it to yellow construction paper. The little bats around them are from Hobby Lobby. I went to the craft section of the store.
4. I bought both the yellow banner and the black stickers from Hobby Lobby. They turned out pretty good and I hope to recycle it.
5. Wall art was on sale at Hobby Lobby so I bought this and one more. Decoration I can reuse rocks.
6. I decided to make the cupcakes myself which saved me a lot. I took it easy on the icing because I'm not an icing person and I thought the parents of the kids who ate these cupcakes would appreciate less sugar in their system.
7. I printed the cupcake toppers from this site. I glued them to construction paper and used some clear tape and toothpicks to finish out.

I already had the cupcake tower (what a great investment!) and as you can see my son was very happy with his birthday celebration. Oh, I made the shirt he has on this photo. I bought the shield at Hobby lobby as well as the black t-shirt. I glued it the night before his birthday and that's all it took!
I told you the party needed to be moveable. My son's birthday was on a church night so we moved the whole party to the church. Many thanks to my friend Louise for making the superhero signs for me. It was a fun party and I hope I gave you some ideas for your own celebration.
