I am a Child of God - block
Non-Sew Superhero Costume
I created these designs after I designed the print for the "I am a Child of God" block. Again, for the same reason I created the block, I wanted my religion represented in our son's room, but in a fun, superhero-esque way. On my Pinterest board, Superhero Nursery, you'll see I've pinned many cute printables with scriptures and finding strength in God and putting trust in Him. However, I didn't love the design. I also didn't like that it was written in the New Age text. I read the King James version of the bible and the other versions don't resonate with me as well.
So, I decided to create my own version. This particular printable went through at least 6 drafts before I found one I was happy with. Even then, I think it can use a little more cute....but it's done.
I designed the printable on the top too. I couldn't find a free printable that I liked. Again, I loved the strong moral message about strength. Boys need to be told that they can be strong. They also need to understand that their strength lies within so they can grow up to be self-confident and do great things in their lives. I found the clipart through BloOp's Art.
The middle photo came to be because I didn't want to make it too cluttered by having too much text. So going along with the idea of featuring different superheroes in the room, I choose another DC favorite, Batman, to be a part of the set.
When hanging this, you have the liberty to place it vertically, as I have done, or horizontally. In fact, that was my original vision of how I would hang up this set. But as you'll see why I hung it vertically in my BIG NURSERY ROOM REVEAL (coming soon to a post near you). Please subscribe to be one of the first to be notified.
Ok, let's talk about set up. Once you have printed these out, you have a couple of different options. You can place these in a frame, modge podge them onto a canvas, or do what I did.
I bought these three little wooden plaques from Hobby Lobby. They came in a set of 3 for $4. I've used canvas for many projects and I wanted something different.
When I printed them out, I found that they were too narrow for the plaque itself. So I ended up painting the edges with a color that matched the print.
From there, I painted modge podge onto the entire board and placed my printable on. I choose to not put modge podge on the front of the printable. Putting modge podge on the front reinforces the glue on the back and put a nice glossy touch to it.
However, I like the non-glossy look on this and I also have the tendency to smear too much modge podge on the printable, causing it to bleed and smear. I didn't want to risk it.
So there you have it. It's quick, easy, cheap, and cute! All of my favorite things!!
Below are the images and links for the printables. You can take one or all of them. I only ask for a couple of things:
1. SUBSCRIBE to my newsletter at the top of the page. If the link isn't working, please Contact Me so I can fix the problem.
2. Only use these for personal use.
P.S. I had to remove the Courage of a Superhero because I do not own the rights to the clipart and therefore cannot distribute it.
Thanks for reading! comment below if you have any other ideas of how to hang up/present these printables in a room!
