Wrapping it all up: Wreaths, Doors & Printables

We've reached the end of what I have to offer superhero-wise!
(At least for this party!!)

This was my favorite party to do so far since there were so many fun things to do with it!
I had a couple little things I wanted to share with you to wrap up Superhero Party week here :)

Remember my door backdrop for the food table?

I'm a TOTAL cabinet hoarder and I literally have close to sixty cabinet doors stacked in my garage.
But I use them for
And they were perfect for making a somewhat foldable backdrop for the table.

I started with these mismatched guys...all varying a little in height.

 And I painted them alternately in black and white gloss spraypaint.
Then I just used their hinges to attach them to each other.
They don't fold together all nice and compact but they do fold in enough to make a small triangle for pretty easy storage.
I tried to make them colors that I could use for all sorts of things.

I LOVE how they turned out and you can definitely expect to see them showing up in other events around here :) 

Next up with this little guy:

Now if there's anything that comes close to my love for spraypaint and cabinet doors... it would most definitely be wreaths.

I'm kind of obsessed with them.
And yes, it may be a little silly to try and make one each year for differently themed birthday parties.

So...well, I don't make different ones.
I use the SAME wreath base and just change it up a little.
It's one of the easiest things to do for little man's party now

Check out the past three years of the little red burlap wreath below:

It would be easy to think looking at all the parties seperately that I make them each year but I'm not that awesome!

I made the red burlap forms three years ago and they have worked each year since!
I just wrapped a regualar wreath form in red burlap, & secured with hot glue.

Then every birthday, I just change out the embellishments.
His third birthday was dog-themed so they were dog collars, his fourth birthday was pirate-y so I literally just glued a little pirate ship to them.
This year I wrapped a wooden 'five' in washi tape and then attached a few stars from my superhero print I made.
So next year, I can just switch it out again!!

Notice that the burlap has frayed a little more each year... love that!!!

So I just keep my two (I made one for each back door) wreaths stored in my birthday bins year-round.
They're super handy to pull out and re-use!!

And last, but certianly not least, the rest of my superhero printables that I have for you!!

I've got four different cupcake toppers & the costume table sign!!

I used four different designs for my cupcake toppers but you can print & use whatever you want.
I put a "5" on the red chevron ones and "super ryan" on the word one.
I'm giving them to you blank so you can add whatever you like!!
