Felt Monsters

I recently mentioned that I am working on my boys birthday parties. My youngest will be 2 in March and we are doing a monster party for him. We decided on this theme because he has some cute monster puppets that he likes to play with.
While I really enjoy planning my boys birthday parties, I don't want to spend a lot. My goal is always to do as much as I can myself for the cheapest amount possible. That is why I always plan far in advance. That gives me a chance to buy things as inexpensive as I can and have plenty of time to make things without getting stressed out. I decided to make a monster banner to hang above the food table. I searched around online for ideas and then made the monsters out of felt. It turned out to be a lot of fun seeing them come to life. They each seem to have their own personality. Closer to the party date I will sew them onto some ribbon to finish the banner.

I saw the picture and thought it was something else. I thought it was a bunch of pieces that the kids could mix and match to create different monsters. I made something like that last fall...my kids put together felt cupcakes...pieces of different felt colors of cupcake, cup/liner, frosting, sprinkles, cherries, chocolate chips, hearts, etc. It's great to keep them busy for a little while. I'm gonna take your idea and make some monsters that they can put together. :) Thanks!
