Marvel Avengers Party Ideas

Last year I threw myself a big birthday party, the kind of party kids have.  I had the party at the beautiful Los Encinos State Historic Park.

I also made some PVC bows and arrows using this tutorial, but I didn't curve the PVC as I found they worked better (arrows shot much farther) if I left them straight. This meant they didn't look like bows, but they worked so that's what was important to me. I also used pencil top erasers as the "arrow" and that also worked well.  

I made a Hulk Smash Box similar to this, but I used one of the boxes I had received from ordering all the candy favors online. I used white foam core board and cut holes in the cardboard box and the foam core and sandwiched green tissue paper between them. I put small prizes inside.

Here are a few of the favors I made for each of the guests at the party. I made sure there were things specific for kids, too.

I got this cheeky idea for Black Widow favors.

Wax Lips candy
 I also made arrow straws filled with Pixy Stix.  I don't have a picture of them, but I made them again for my niece's Hunger Games birthday party seen here. I also made black arrow pens gluing felt to form the fletching.

Using the freezer paper stencil technique, see this tutorial, I made these shirts for prizes.

Tony Stark gave the 100 Grand bars. 

 Tony also had "Tony Stark Party Bags" which were 6x9" red satin drawstring favor bags containing a deck of cards, 2 red dice, and golden and red casino chips.

SHIELD Warheads

Tesseract Cubes (cotton candy flavored rock candy) which I had to label since it looked like it was from Breaking Bad.

The Hershey's Kisses were given to me by a friend as leftovers from the candy bar at her son's Bar Mitzvah.  I cut a bunch of small boxes with my Cricut and placed 1 kiss per box.  I tried to use Avengers colors (Green-Hulk, Deep Red - Thor, Yellow - Iron Man, etc.) 

I printed a pumpkin carving stencil onto cardstock to use as a stencil to paint the "A" logo onto the tote bags which I gave to each of the guests to hold all of their goodies.

 I first traced the image using a gold pen (to show up on the black bag), then covered that outline in dimensional fabric paint in silver metallic.  Then I filled in the logo with soft fabric paint in silver metallic. The paints I used were Tulip brand.

Fill in with "soft" style fabric paint.
 I also made Avengers bookmarks, and I still have some of those, I don't have a picture of them.

I saved a bag for myself and was able to get Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye) to sign it at the Thor: The Dark World Los Angeles Premiere!
