Super Buddies DIY superhero accessories.

Super Buddies DIY superhero accessoriesHi! I’m Candie from CandieCooper.com. Have you seen the Disney Super Buddies movie yet? In this epic “tail,” the five furballs from Disney’s Buddies discover mysterious rings that grant them each a unique super power. It’s an awesome family movie, especially for dog lovers like myself.

I also love making jewelry, so when I watched Super Buddies I zoned in on all the detailed accessories each of the buddies adorned. From the Rings of Inspirion to initial necklaces, here are 5 easy projects you’ll see on B-Dawg, Rosebud, MudBud, Budderball, and Buddha.

bling-stepsPick your power symbol like Buddha and B-Dawg and wear it proudly! You can make them by printing your initial or symbol onto paper. If you’re using an inkjet printer, photocopy the images so the ink doesn’t run when you Mod Podge them onto card stock. Cut around the symbols and add gems with Mod Podge.

tubeNow let’s really amp things up and make some Rings of Inspirion! The first thing I did was found a pack of glow necklaces in the party supply section of the super store. Then I found some tubing where two necklaces could easily fit inside. Slide the glow necklaces in and cut the tubing flush with the length of the glow necklace.

cuff-stepsI really liked Budderball’s cuffs on the end of his blue sleeves so I made some by covering two pieces of cardstock in yellow duct tape. Seal the cuffs with a little Mod Podge Sparkle. The more sparkle the more power in my book.

everythingWhich Super Buddies accessory is your favorite? I know, it’s hard to choose. Now you have to see the movie, right? It came out in a Blu-ray Combo Pack yesterday, August 27th – so go pick it up for your family. It would also make a great gift!

    Oh, Disney super buddies is my kids’ favorite movie and they often outplay the story in real life. I didn`t know that it is so easy to make these accessories! I`ll definitely try to make them by myself and I think that my kids will be really happy.
