My husband and I are huge movie buff, but these days as new parents we barely ever get to the movies. So, when I tell you that we went to see Guardians of Galaxy twice in the theaters, I hope you understand how much we love this movie! It’s the best thing we have seen in a LONG time!!
The Guardians of the Galaxy was released on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 9! If you haven’t seen it, you definitely need to buy it ASAP! If you have seen it, I know you already bought it. We had a fun movie night with our Guardians of the Galaxy costumes and our new Galaxy outfits that we made. Check out the DIY below. We love making DIYs when new movies come out and especially over the holidays.
From 12/7 – 12/13, there is a $5 Walmart gift card offer when you purchase a Groot, Drax or Rocket Raccoon figure for Disney Infinity 2.0. The cashier should be prompted to give a $5 Walmart gift card instantly. We picked up our Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital copy at Walmart where they have Exclusive Character O-sleeve and exclusive music zinepack and a 64 page magazine with cast and crew interviews, exclusive behind-the-scenes photos and trivia PLUS a custom “cassette” laptop decal.
After opening the Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-Ray, we signed up for More.Marvel.com where we downloaded the digital copy of the movie so we can watch it on our tablets and phones. Also, I downloaded the soundtrack for only $7.99 and my husband signed up for this unlimited online comic service, normally it is $9.99, but was only .99 because of the DVD purchase.
Guardians of the Galaxy Family DIY
Tools & Supplies
- Black clothing (black shirt and black pants)
- Toddler Black Pants
- V-Neck Cropped T-Shirt (Easy DIY on how to crop your top here)
- Paint for Fabric (Blue, Light Blue, Purple, Pink, White)
- Paper Plate
- Small Spray Bottle
- Cut up Sponge
Squirt the paint onto a paper plate or into paper bowls. Cut up the sponge into four pieces to use as your brushes.
Begin by dabbing paint onto the clothing. Use less paint to start and build from there. Continue adding paint until you get the shape and brightness you want. There will be blending and some mixing of colors. Go with what feels right. If you are at a loss of where to go next, just start watching Guardians of the Galaxy again and you’ll be inspired.
Add stars to your galaxy color dust clouds by putting white paint into a small spray bottle. You could use an old hair spray bottle or a little travel spray bottle. I did not spray the star on my pieces yet as I somehow ran out of white paint!!
