Superhero Cape Decorating

You need a super craft for a superhero party! For a fun party activity, Jenn had a cape decorating workshop.

Each child was given a package that included a pre cut black cape, felt mask, and a stencil of their initial to trace onto felt.

Tables were stocked with glue, extra colors of felt, string, scissors and foam shapes for decorating capes. After the decorating was over, parents tied the capes and masks on the kids and they instantly became super!!

    You can make capes out of old/new T-shirts by leaving the neck ring to go over the head, and in front of the neck, while cutting everything else away except the back piece.

  9. Would love a little info about these. Am having a superhero birthday party in a couple of weeks and am planning on making capes for the kids. What is the material here for the cape? The one pic where they are being decorated looks like the material used was a no sew item??? Taht would be WONDERFUL to find out! Thanks!!

  10. Elizabeth says:

    Hello, wonderful printables! I love them all! I am having trouble downloading the super hero templates. I’m not sure if this one is even included because it is not mentioned, but do you have the stencil templates? If so, could you please send them to me. Thanks

  11. shanmcclam says:

    I am asking the same question, what material did you use for the capes. 1. The cape template doesn’t seem to be working. Could you send it to me please?
    2. Are your capes made of felt?
    3. How did you attach the emblems/letters on to the capes so the kids could wear them immediately?
    4. What did you use to keep the masks on the kids?
    please email me

    • @shanmcclam,
      This party was by my friend, Jen. To me, it doesn’t look like felt capes, but a t-shirt type of fabric. I would use fabric glue for the felt letters. Punch holes in the masks and use elastic string.

  12. Jacquie says:

    LoveLoveLove this!! I want to do a SuperHero themed birthday party for my son’s 4th birthday party… I had a couple of questions, kinda the same as everyone else but I didn’t see the answers…
    1. What fabric did you use for the capes?
    2. What did you use to glue/adhere the stuff to the capes so that they could use them right away?
    3. I couldn’t get the template to come up can you send them to me??


  13. Stephanie says:

    I am planning a Super hero party form my son. I love the capes, but can’t seem to find the template to download, can you send it to me? Thanks!

  14. Where did you buy the felt rectangles?
    Do you have the template for the back of the cape?
