DIY No Sew Ninjago Headbands

Hey all!!! I hope you're not all bored to death with all this Ninjago Party planning of mine. All I want is to make my son's birthday memorable, and maybe inspire some of you with ideas when planning your next party! 

Today I'm going to share with you how I made the Ninja headbands. Really easy, I promise!!!

DIY No Sew Ninjago Headbands

I didn't want to spend any time sewing. My solution....  ribbon! I bought a 1.5-inch wide ribbon that I found at Micheal's. Cut it to the desired length, for as many as you need.

The only problem with ribbon is that it frays :(
TIP: I used my heat embossing tool to heat the ends and slightly melt them. No more fraying! Probably could do the same with a candle,  but be very CAREFUL if you do!

Next, I printed the kid's names out and taped the paper up on my kitchen window. I then took the piece of ribbon that I had cut and found the middle. I then aligned it over each name and secured it to the window with more tape. All that is left to do is trace it with a sharpie. Super easy, right?!?

These will make a great keepsake for the guests to take home, and even if they are thrown out you won't feel so bad because it was that easy!!!

DIY Ninjago Birthday Party Photo Booth

Now that you have seen the photo props, it's time to show you how I made the background for the Ninja photo booth, which will also double as a signature board keepsake. 

I first joined two pieces of poster board and taped them to each other, leaving a seam down the middle. I used the seam as a guide and just penciled the drawing in first.

I then just painted the picture in with a paintbrush and some red acrylic paint. You could also probably use a marker if you didn't feel comfortable painting. Here's a closer look... not bad for not being a traced image!

I added thank you to each side so that when our guests receive the picture it will also be a thank you to them as well! I am also hoping to get each guest to sign their names on it. This way Tomas can keep it as a keepsake from the party! It folds in half very easily and can be rolled up for storage.

Here is Tomas once again posing with his weapons...

Ninjago Balloon Stickers - Free Silhouette Print and Cut Studio File


Ninjago Balloon Stickers - Free Silhouette Print and Cut Studio File

Here is a really quick and simple project I made for my son's Ninjago party. I created the Ninja eyes with the print and cut feature of the Silhouette software. For those of you with a Silhouette machine, all that is left to do is Print and Cut. 

You can print it onto an adhesive lined sheet of paper and just stick them on your balloons. I didn't have any adhesive paper, so I just printed them out on regular card stock and taped them to the balloons! You can use these eyes on pretty much anything for your party! I'm sure I'll be using them for a few more things! Just have fun with them :)

I also made a prop container simply by wrapping a mason jar with the lantern file. Notice I also made some cool Ninjago weapons, I'm sure those will be popular with the boys!
