You can get these in your local craft stores. Create a fun poster with your kid that says Wanted and hang it on the door. You can also get some red bandanas for all the guests to wear. These can also serve as decorations for the table and on the wall.
Similarly to the poster that you hang on the wall, take a photo of your kid in a bandit outfit and look for an invitation template that says Wanted and has a vintage effect. You can then use this for the invitations. Make sure it looks old and a bit faded. You can print it on recycled paper or special vintage looking paper that you can find in craft stores.
