Anyway, I dug through my stash of dollar store T-shirts and found the right sizes in fun, bright colors. I printed the images on some printable iron-on transfer paper, cut them out, and ironed them on. Easy! (I use a brand you can find at JoAnn, specified as "transfer to dark." You can fit a lot of little images on just one sheet, so they go a long way.) We've already made another round of Mario Brothers theme shirts -- and I foresee more in the near future!
(You must click over and check them out -- they are TOO fun!)
And, last but not least, this little "project" just tickles me!
I made a quick trip to the Hostess thrift store and bought Snoballs (green for Halloween, just my luck!) and some tiny cupcakes.
Add a little black gel frosting for eyes and some white frosting for spots, and you have an Extra Life Mushroom cupcake!! I cannot vouch for the, er, FLAVOR... but I think they are stinking cute!
I've had more fun than should be legal with these little party projects -- and everyone had a great time at the party! It was fun for everyone, but the creative parts were EXCEPTIONALLY fun for me. Win-win all around, I say!
