batman party invitation - Super Hero Birthday PartyA Superhero Birthday Party is always a hit with little boys. My son was a slightly obsessed with Batman a while back… so I know how much fun this party theme can be!

Check out this awesome Superhero Birthday Party Idea for DIY Capes and Masks by my friend Jenn Kirk at Ambrosia Girl. Scroll down for FREE party printables she made just for Living Locurto readers!

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!!

    Thanks for all your ideas and templates… very helpful in planning my sons combined 4&5th birthday party.

  2. just wanted to say thank you for sharing your ideas and templates! this has been such a help! My DAUGHTER wanted a superhero party (AVENGERS LOVER!) and I am clueless as to ideas! This really got my creative juices flowing! thanks again!

  3. Thank you sooOOoo much for these printables! Need these for my niece’s Batman bday party. She is turning 5 and this will help to make it a great day for her!

  4. lela bloom says:

    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.

  5. Thanks so much for the pattern templates!! I’ve just finished my Princess Super Hero cape and am pretty delighted with it! 🙂 Princess Super Hero Cape and Mask

  6. Thank you for the superhero mask templates! This just made our party!! I cut out a bunch of mask peices and let them design their own masks with stars, hearts, flowers, lightening bolts, etc. AWESOME! 🙂

  7. Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all folks you actually know what you’re talking approximately! Bookmarked. Kindly also talk over with my website =). We can have a link alternate contract between us

  8. Love superheroes!!! I design and create upcycled girl’s superhero dresses and shirts that would be great for a superhero themed birthday.
    Hope you’ll stop by.
    Here is my link:

  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 [email protected]

    • @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?

  15. Lisa Thakkar says:

    I’m planning a superhero party for my almost 4 yr old son – yours looks like so much fun! I have a few questions, though:
    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?

    Thank you, thank you!!

  16. Great place to get kids super hero capes – – SO cute!

  17. Thanks for the awesome templates! I used the mask one to whip up a dress-up outfit for my 2yo:

    It didn’t go so well, but the mask part was great, ha! 🙂

  18. robin goforth says:

    loved the supper hero things. They will be a great help with my sons 4th bday

  19. Love the Batman invite with the picture of your son. How do you make those?

  20. I’m performing a thing of the same interest and are having note on this .Cheers.

  21. I love the ideas. I’m not having a birthday party but a superhero theme for Halloween so the pow zap bif pdf will help!

  22. I have read a few good stuff hereDefinitely price bookmarking for revisitingI wonder how much attempt you set to create this kind of great informative website.

  23. Hi!
    Just came across your posting. Love the cape idea!! What kind of fabric did you use to make them?


  24. Shannan says:

    I love your ideas. My son is turning four and decided he wants a Batman birthday party. I had been looking all over the internet for kids masks to buy, but I love your ideas! Can’t wait to see what else this website has to offer!

    Thanks for all the great ideas!

  25. Stephanie says:

    I love your ideas & greatly appreciate you sharing them.My son wants a Power Ranger party.So this is info. is helpful.Thank you :]

  26. Tammie Allegro says:

    I know I am late to this party, but I love these. My 16 year old daughter is graduating from High School and she wants a Batman themed graduation party. I cannot wait to use some of these ideas. A friend from work designed her invitations. I think it is going to be such an awesome party.

    Thanks for sharing these printables. They are perfect!

  27. I love all of these party ideas and even more that I found through some of the comments! I am already starting to plan my son’s 4th birthday party, which will be in July! He is going to love it!!! Thanks for sharing the printables! I found a great free superhero cape pattern over at Burda Style
    This is the one I will use to make my capes. Thanks so much!

  28. This is just what I was looking for! How did the kids stick the felt letters to their capes? Is that adhesive backed felt squares? If so, where can I find it? Do they have it at Michael’s? Also, what type of fabric did you use for the capes? Thanks for your help. I am not a subscribed member, so if you wouldn’t mind sending a reply to me at amy_breedlove at msn dot com

  29. What did you use to tie the capes? Velcro? Did you sew it on? LOVE LOVE LOVE these ideas! My little superhero is s o excited about his third birthday party!

  30. what a great idea! I bought my son a cape from, but this is a cute idea too!

  31. Does the sticky back felt stay on the capes? Or do they fall off?

  32. I love these ideas! Not too much work and beautiful results!

  33. Best you should make changes to the page name title Super Hero Birthday Party | Living Locurto – FREE Printables, recipes, party ideas and crafts. to something more specific for your subject you write. I loved the post yet.

  34. Ara Rigdon says:

    I LOVE THIS and am planning my 4yr old super-hero-fanatic’s b-day party, as i post this so any help is greatly appreciated. I am totally using ALL these ideas but what fabric did you use? It looks like you did not have to finish the edges with a stitch. That would make the capes sooooo much less work for me. And I cant seem to get the printable of the cape?

  35. heather says:

    Hi! My son wants a super hero party in July and I want to make about 15 capes. What material did you use? and How did you make them? All the patterns or ideas that I have seen so far seem very complicated.

  36. Megan Morrison says:

    How did you make the capes and with what kind of fabric? They are perfect and have such simple lines. All the other ones I have seen look way more complex.

  37. I was totally inspired by your superhero party! Thanks for all the great ideas! You can check out how mine turned out here:

  38. We just had my son’s fourth birthday party and I used this post for most of my ideas. Thanks so much! It was a huge hit!

  52. Thanks! This is fabulous. My twin boys will be 5 this spring and want a super hero party. I can’t wait for the capes and masks. Any suggestions for the cape material? I suppose something that won’t need to be stitched around the edges.
