we went opening weekend to see the avengers with all the kids….and we got to the movie theater and saw the line in the parking lot and drove right on by to the redbox and rented we bought a zoo. SO NO SPOILERS! we are going to see it soon!
so this is probably one of my top ten favorite projects! something about these little superheros just makes me happy!
I kept seeing these little peg dolls around pinterest….and i KNEW i had to make some. I went HERE to this etsy shop and bought these…and the girl ones with the dresses (princess are coming soon!)…and a family.
THEN I had them all painted and cute….and my son woke up and saw them and went into superhero overload…and i had to tell him that they weren’t for him (they are for my nephew scotty) and i literally had to pinky promise to make him a set. (he wants a good guy set and a villian set so he can play “chess” (he’s 6 and has no idea how to play chess..but i do want to make some villians)
but i let him play with them…and i noticed that they were getting a little scuffed up…
so i took some finishing spray from krylon…
and that’s it! they are so stinking cute Here’s a picture so you can how small they are.. (fyi…the neck is the hardest part top paint!!!)
the only snag i ran into was that the inpiration pictures i was looking at only had the front view…and i wanted to know how the back looked…so i took a picture so you could see how i did mine so you didn’t have to be left scratching your head…
i noticed that i had superhero fabric that matched everyone but green lantern and flash….so i had to take MORE pictures!
i got these cute little printables from HERE
(how cute is that pirate?)
and i also love these star wars one
and these harry potter ones:
i also made a little bag to hold them all..(all hot glue)
the trick with hot gluing on felt is to get glue all around the edges..not so much the middle…
and cause i always like to show you the “behind the scenes”
