The Best Superhero Crafts and DIY’s for All

12 Awesome Superhero Crafts and DIY’s(not just for kids)

 
Some people never grow out of their love of superheroes, like my husband.
 
Paul has been collecting old Flash and Green Lantern Comics since he was a boy, and I have been working on my own superhero craft to celebrate his collection. I decided to translate one of his vintage 60’s Flash Comics into a giant cross stitch.
 
Unfortunately, it’s taking me a lot longer than I thought and won’t be finished for a long while yet.
 
I have rounded up 12 awesome Superhero themed crafts that can be completed a lot quicker. Also, these aren’t just crafts for kids, there is something for everyone young and old, DC or Marvel fans.

11. Mason Jar Superhero Banks – Fireflies and Mud Pies
 
Go for another Batman V Superman battle this time on with savings. This is an easy craft and it wouldn’t be that difficult to design a Flash and Green Lantern mason jar bank.

Thank you, Sara. The old figures do look great on the lamp. I've also used them in past to make a toys frame.
