Fandom Friday: Awesome Avengers DIY Crafts
Released barely a month ago, Avengers: Age of Ultron had Avengers fans all up in excitement, and it is safe to say that the movie made people quite happy.
For this week’s Fandom Friday, we bring some DIY happiness to Avengers fans. While we say “Avengers DIY crafts” it doesn’t mean that “un-crafty” people can’t give them a try. Some of these Avengers DIY crafts are just so cool that you will want to make an effort, even if you haven’t used your hands for other things than typing on your laptop or tapping on your mobile device.
DIY Avengers Shoes
Converse occasionally releases a line of superhero shoes, although I think it’s only for DC characters. If you want Avengers shoes, then you can make them yourself – for much, much cheaper.
You can find the tutorial here, but I feel that I have to warn you that this isn’t exactly the easiest of the Avengers DIY crafts. But hey, you’ll be proud of the results for sure.
Captain America Tie Dye T-shirt
Some think that Captain America is boring, but I beg to disagree. He might have his “too righteous” moments, but I think that’s an important aspect of being a superhero. In any case, for fans of Cap, this tie dye t-shirt is what you can work on this weekend. The tutorial makes it look easy enough.
DIY Avengers T-shirt
If Captain America is not enough for you, then maybe this t-shirt will – and it’s even easier to make than the tie dye one!

DIY Avengers Bag
Never go out without a bag for you never know when you might need it. Okay, I invented that, and some of you may disagree. But whether you’re a guy or a girl, if you like bags, then this DIY Avengers bag is a great way to show off your fandom. I think this bag would be a nifty shopping bag.
You’ll have to find fabric that has the Avengers print, but it is probably worth it. You’ll also need to learn how to sew and cut patterns – if you don’t know how to.

DIY Avengers Pillowcases
A bed is not complete without pillows. Lots of them.
To top it off, why not have Avengers pillowcases? You’ll not only have soft pillows that will help you drift into beddy-bye land, but you’ll also have sweet dreams (or action-packed dreams) with these pillowcases.
Instructions for these pillowcases are here.
DIY Avengers Lamp
Lighting is everything, and the perfect lamp is what you need. With this Avengers lamp, you don’t only set the mood with the lighting, but you also make a statement with the design. A dashing statement.

DIY Avengers Bookmarks
This is how you start your kids young. Make Avengers bookmarks which will serve two purposes.
One, you teach them about superheroes early on.
Two, you encourage the love of reading.
That’s a win-win situation, isn’t it?
Oh, and who says these bookmarks are just for kids?
This project is super easy, and you can follow the instructions here.
The Avengers Working Desk
This is technically NOT a DIY project – unless you’re really good at making things. This Avengers Working Desk was created by professionals of Tom Spina designs. If you can pull it off, go for it. If not, prepare to spend quite a bunch of money to have one made just for you.
That’s it, folks. I think you have enough Avengers DIY crafts to keep you busy for a while. If you have other ideas, why not share them with the rest of us?
