Wynn has been obsessed over Monsters Inc and Monsters University lately. She asked to have a Monsters birthday party. Her birthday is not for a few months, but I thought this could also fit in with Halloween too. That is why I'm sharing some of my projects so far in advance. I also wanted to get some of the party decorations finished while I had time.
First off is the Mike Wazowski favor bag. I picked up the green bags at Michaels, and then simply layered round scrapbook paper to create the infamous one eye of Mike.
On the site Catch My Party there was an adorable Monsters Inc. party shared. They had made the words Mike and Sully out of larger letters and decorated them in the colors of each character. I took that idea, and thought I would make the letters spell Wynn's name and use the colors of Sully.
I took some paper mache letters, and some craft paint to make the look of Sully on them. I used a simple sponge dauber to make the polka dots on the letters after the coat of turquoise went on.
The third decoration I have created is the door garland after seeing an adorable one from the same Catch My Party website. The doors are an important part of Monsters Inc. because the monsters enter through them to the human world to scare children.
I simply cut out shapes in scrapbook paper and glued them to some rectangle shapes. The wanted the shapes to have a little bit of a whimsical look, so I did not worry about cutting straight. That helped me also save time and make this in about ten minutes too. Wynn saw it and right away said look at all the doors for the monsters to go in.
