‘Hunger Games’ DIY Week: Effie Trinket’s Party Invitation

by: on | in Movies | 1 Comment

We’re counting down the days until we can watch The Hunger Games on Blu-ray (available August 18th) by featuring a different Games-inspired DIY project every day this week to help you pull off the perfect viewing party this weekend.

First up, the invitation. Our idea borrows from the movie’s scene where Effie pulls Prim’s name out of a giant bowl filled with slips of paper with the names of District 12’s teens. When you open it up, a tiny slip of paper with your name falls out. Chilling, we know.


Step 1: Find a Hunger Games image on your computer. We used this one.

Step 2: Using a photo editing program like Photoshop, create a card-size image (you can also just print it out and paste it onto a blank card).

Step 3: Tell your friends when and where the party is on the inside of the card.

Step 4: Cut out a tiny piece of paper and write down the name of your friend who you’re giving the invite to. Try to do your best Effie Trinket cursive.

Voila! Your friends will be very impressed (or thoroughly creeped out) with this DIY invite. For more photos of our invitation, check out our Hunger Games party Pinterest board.

Are you planning to have a Hunger Games viewing party? Check back every day this week for more THG-themed DIY projects and don’t forget to buy The Hunger Games on Blu-ray and DVD on August 18.
