Birthday two on the making: Spiderman Table.
My youngest son asked for a Spiderman birthday, and with two weeks left, I feel a little behind. We started with choosing between cupcakes or cake, and he liked a cake in the shape of a building. I got engaged on the idea, and thought would be great to make a little city, with other buildings made of paper (because there is so much sugar we can have). I found a couple of boxes to make buildings. I covered with scrapbook paper, making the windows and details. Then for the table, I covered with some wrapping paper, leaving the white side up. And using acrylic paint, I made the streets and areas where the buildings are going to stand. For the background, I reused my oldest son's old science project board, which was also wrapped in wrapping paper. Then I roughly made a sketch of the background. Then we painted with acrylic paint. I also decorated water bottles with my superhero scrap paper. Using some white string I tied some spider webs. Putting everything together looks nice. I still have a few more days to make other decorations and prepare the food. In the meantime I see if I can find more cool ideas.
