DIY: Avengers Party Ideas
November 18, 2014
|Avengers Tote Bag|
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.

Using the freezer paper stencil technique, see this tutorial, I made these shirts for prizes.
|Iron Man shirt|
|Avengers "A" Logo shirt|
|Captain America Star shirt|
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.
Tesseract Cubes (cotton candy flavored rock candy) which I had to label since it looked like it was from Breaking Bad.

Captain America Tootsie Rolls
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.
