$4 DIY Superhero City Party Backdrop

$4 DIY Superhero City Party Backdrop

Pin It
I just finished making this Superhero City Party Backdrop for my son's upcoming Superhero Birthday Party.  It turned out great! And it only cost $4! I bought 3 thicker black poster boards and 1 bright yellow sticky note pad from Dollar Tree.  Then I lined all of the poster boards on the floor next to each other and put the sticky notes on in straight rows.  I added extra tape to the back of the sticky note windows so that it would stay put if it gets windy.  The hardest part of this project was getting all of my sticky note windows straight-it was super easy-no rulers needed!

I'm going to let you in on a little secret.  Shhh.  I'm getting ready to throw a Superhero Party for my soon to be five year old son! And in my quest for all things Superhero, I found some awesome party items at Dollar Tree! So if you are throwing a Superhero Party, run out to Dollar Tree and grab these items for your party! I found Superman and Batman wrapping paper rolls which I use for decorating not wrapping, Superhero Capes (Halloween section) that I'll use as prizes, Chevron Black & White Paper Straws (Halloween section),  and Avengers tatoos and Spiderman stickers to put in favor bags! The wrapping paper was hard to find for me.  I went to two stores before finding only three rolls left! The capes also come in all black if you want a Batman themed party.  I also purchased balloons, streamers, and plastic tablecloths at Dollar Tree.  Everything was $1 each! This year's party will be held in our backyard.  Parties can be expensive so I often start my party search at Dollar Tree to save money.  Best of luck in your Superhero Party quest! And come back to my blog for all of the Superhero Party details & ideas for your next party!

Home Organization 101

Home Organization 101

What have I been doing with my time lately? Organizing of course! Since we moved into our new home, I have been organizing like crazy! And you don't have to spend tons of money to organize! Shop at Dollar Tree for baskets of all sizes.
These Dollar Tree baskets work well in my refrigerator for storing fruits, vegetables, food, and even medicine.

Our garage was terrible-we could not even park both of our cars in it! We purchased the Rubbermaid Fast Track system at Lowes and moved things up on to the walls creating a lot more space for our cars. Hanging our bikes is a huge space saver.  We did have to purchase a special drill and screws with anchors for concrete walls, but we know we'll be using it for a ton of other projects.  I bought the hook rack and more baskets from Dollar Tree to organize the rest of our stuff.
For the other side of the garage we purchased a Craftsman VersaTrack Trackwall system from Sears.  We bought it because there are small shelves you can place on top of the system along with hooks and the ball holder.  I used a bungee cord (another Dollar Tree item) to hang the round pool floats up on a hook also.
Finally, I cleared a drawer by using Command Hooks to hang a magazine holder on the inside of a kitchen cabinet for things like aluminum foil.  I added a diy spice rack on the inside of another kitchen cabinet door to add more space for my spices.  You can purchase those black metal hooks at the Dollar Tree too!
