    Fortnite Backdrop Supplies

    Camouflage Netting and Blinds

    Set the scene with these covert camouflage blinds and netting.

    Wood Panel for Backdrop

    For the wood-look backdrop, I used self-stick wallpaper. I’ve included a few good ones below.

    They have tons of colors to choose from if you want something a little different.

    Favorite Party Favors for Gift Bags

    Fortnite/Gaming T-shirt

    This is one of the Fortnite shirts we bought and gave to our party guests as they were coming in the door.

    Including shirts as part of the “loot drop” bag was perfect! A lot of the kids put their shirts on when they first got to the

    party. All the parents informed me later that their kids said our Fortnite birthday party was the best party they ever

    I would love to know where you got the drop bags from four of the favors. Your post was so awesome!!

    Hi Lindsay - and Thank You! So, I bought the plain blue gift bags at the Dollar Tree (2-pack). Then I went on to a vendor named Sarah Marie Kays Print Shop and downloaded the digital file for the drop bags. I was just looking at her shop and I don't think she has them listed anymore. But, I did see lots of other Etsy sellers with digital downloads like hers that are extremely similar. So, I would recommend you go on, in the search bar type in "Fortnite gift bags, or Fortnite favor bags" and there will be lots of vendors that will pop up and you can choose which one you like the best. The other thing you could do, if you are handy with either PicMonkey or Canva, is to create the rectangular crate image and put the words DROP across the front of it. Then print it out and attach to your bags with double-sided tape or glue. Good Luck with everything! Let me know how it goes! : ) Jennifer @derbylanedreams.

    Hi Cheyenne, Thank you so much! Oh, that would be great -- I can't wait to see your photos! All the kids are going to love your party! It's going to be "EPIC!" : ) Thank you, Jennifer @derbylanedreams.

    I am almost ready for my Son’s Fortnite Battle Royale Birthday party with a Nerf war included! I made the Piñata and it came out adorable!!! I found another link that used a washer and small zip strips to form a hook to hang my piñata. I am going to be so sad to see the kids destroy the Loot Llama - well if they can! I made this thing probably a little to solid! Thanks for the great post. One thing I am struggling with is finding a place to make a cake. Where did you get yours?

    Hi Beth! Your party is going to be AWESOME! I ordered the Fortnite cake topper on I got a sheet cake from Publix and asked them to put grass (green icing) all over the top and sides. Then, you just place the cake topper right in the middle. It will fit best on a half sheet cake. I got 1/4 sheet cake and I had to trim down the cake topper.

    Type in this text at the search bar and it should take you right to the cake topper I used:

    Have a Blast!!! Jennifer @derbylanedreams

    What an awesome party you created for your son. Very talented lady indeed! On your party table there is a metal bucket with mini llama heads popping out from the candy..I absolutely love this idea! Just wondering if there is a link for printable mini llama?

    Jen | Derby Lane Dreams

    Friday 9th of November 2018

    Hi Tracy! Thank you so much! Yes, those mini llama heads were so cute! They are actually cupcake toppers, but I used double-sided tape and stuck them onto flat suckers so they would stay up in the olive bucket. Any printables that I purchased for the Fortnite party were from here: . All of her printable downloads are very reasonably priced and she does excellent illustrations. I believe I went to her etsy store and purchased the Fortnite cupcake toppers. Hopefully she still has the same ones. If you don't see them, you can always message her and ask if it is still available.

    I hope this helps! : ) Jennifer@derbylanedreams

    Last night, I decided to do fortnite for trunk or treat at our church (as one of my sons was playing fortnite and it got me thinking), and then I started looking up ideas and found your blog. I printed out the templates and have 2 days to put something together, but most of it seems doable. I’m not crafty at all, but you made it easy! I’m excited to work on this over the next couple of days. Thanks for the Etsy links to get some of the labels. Big time saver to do that as opposed to making the jars and everything like I initially thought I’d have to do. And thank you for keeping it simple, cheap, and fun!

    Hi Mandy! Thanks for your kind comments! And, you are welcome! Yes, everything is definitely doable -- cheap, simple, and so fun to use! You will have no problem making any of these DIY items. We have some of the fortnite pickaxes left over from our fortnite party and my kids and their friends love to chase each other with them! (Okay, I may do that too, on occasion : ) I am excited for you! I had the best time making all this stuff, and the kids' reactions were priceless! So worth it! Have a great "Trunk or Treat" weekend!
