Superhero Bins {Tutorial and Printable}

To say my son is obsessed with superhero's right now is an understatement. He can spot anything and everything superhero wherever we are. . .
 which is not always a good thing. I am running out of excuses of why we can't buy every superhero thing he sees.
So, we are in the process of transforming his room into, of course, a superhero room and making space for his little brother while we are at it. Here is another sneak peek into his decor:
SUPERHERO BINS
What you need:
Logo Printout with the font, Hall of Heroes (click on images to print)
4 Fabric Bins from Target & Lowe's
Scrap Felt
Paper Scissors
Fabric Scissors
Hot Glue Gun

 This font has every superhero logo and more. My son loves me just printing them out so he can color them.
 Cut out the each layer/color of the logos.
Pin (I found it easier to pin than trace on felt) the logos onto your felt and cut out.
 Glue your background piece on the bin first and then the rest of the pieces to finish the logo.
I had a little help from my own superhero
 Pretty much the easiest tutorial. . . 


Stay tuned to see them in Bodie and Tatum's new Superhero room!

  3. Crap, I wasn't the first to comment. I am falling behind. Love the bins. They are awesome. Thinking of redoing Redd's room. He is superhero obsessed as well. He kept asking when you were going to be at our house for his birthday. It was too cute.

  20. This is adorable!! My cousin and her son (age 5) recently sent my daughter a Batman toy because, as her son said, "Everyone needs a bat cave!" I'll have to try this out. It would be a great place to keep the bat cave. . .

  23. These are great. My son has a super hero theme room and those bins. Must make these. I had him pick from the font and of course he chose ones that aren't on your site. (transformers). how did you enlarge each symbol. The biggest I can make them is 72 size font and that doesn't seem to be large enough.

    1. Did you ever figure it out? If not, I can e-mail you the transformers font enlarged.

  25. I also need help figuring out how to enlarge the symbols. I have a back, I downloaded the entire hall of heroes font collection but can't figure out how to choose just one and enlarge it. In your tutorial, did you mean to click on the superhero symbols you actual have on this page? Please help as I really want to make these for my son! Thanks.

    1. I had to go through the Hall of Heroes alphabet to find the logo I wanted. I can't remember which letter the batman, green lantern, superman and flash are. Once I found the logo I wanted, I just made that one letter (logo) take up half the page. Does that answer your question?

      Delete
    2. Wow, that was kinda cool, I figured it out. Thanks for the tip, now I can't wait to make this.

  28. I enjoy you because of every one of your efforts on this site. Ellie loves making time for investigation and it is easy to see why. Most of us know all concerning the dynamic manner you provide valuable things by means of the web site and in addition attract participation from website visitors on that concern and my daughter is undoubtedly studying a lot. Take advantage of the remaining portion of the new year. You're the one doing a really great job.

  34. Very cool! Thanks for the instructions and templates. My grown sons would also love these (yes it's true, they never grow out of it).

  35. Just got these done & my son is in superhero HEAVEN! Every time I would finish cutting out one of the symbols, he would take it & fly it around the room & pretend he was that superhero. :) I have never got so many compliments & "I love you, mom"s from my son as I did while working on this project! Thanks for the idea!!! It turned out perfect!

  36. Awesome idea!!! Definitely doing this!!

  37. I can't get them to print in anything but very small, still in their alphabet numbered boxes. I need the HULK logo, of course I'd love them all, can you please tell me how to get them? I DID download them but still no help.....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you just click on them, do they open in a separate window that you can print from? You can download the font HALL OF HEROES for free on dafont.com. After that just open a Word Document and find the hulk's logo (which is just his name) and make it as big as the page. Let me know if you need any more help!

    1. If you download the Hall of Hero's font, they have Wonder Woman. You could always just make the Superman logo pink and purple?? Hope that helps.

  54. You are amazingly talented! You have given me a starting point to work with. I am moving to 7th grade next year and I want my classroom to be a DC comic theme. I am struggling with a slogan for my front door as I do not want something to childish. Middle school kids are at an awkward age in which some things are cool and some things embarrass them. Thank you, thank you! Sarah
