Plants Vs Zombies has been released for the BlackBerry Z10! And I have a BlackBerry Z10! So guess who’s been spending all of her (precious little) free time yelling at zombies?
These Plants vs. Zombies paper toys are probably going to be my next obsession. Paper crafting is super fun! It’s inexpensive, relatively easy to make, and there are oodles of awesome patterns out there…like these cuties from Mayainpaper! There are downloadable patterns for quite a few plants and zombies, but I think Crazy Dave might actually be my favorite.
I wish I had a tutorial to offer you, but I don’t. Here’s the (awesome) scoop anyway: This dude, Sean, has an apparently crafty and fabulous mother. He told her that he and his girlfriend were into Plants vs. Zombies shortly before Christmas. She made them these delightful stockings. He shared the story on Reddit, and it was subsequently tweeted by PopCap’s Director of Editorial and Social Media, Jeff Green. Who thought they were socks, before being corrected by much of the twitterverse. And now I share it with you. Enjoy.
This week PopCap released a new game, Unpleasant Horse. In honour of it, here is an Etsy Treasury of one of PopCaps awesome games, Plants vs Zombies. Be sure to click the picture to go to the treasury and check out all the cool links!
Chainsaws are so 2006. Today, we all know the best way to kill zombies is with vegetation.
Thanks to Plants vs. Zombies, gamers can rigorously train in simulated zombie combat. But what to do when the undead really do show up on your lawn?
Plush artist Alix Banegas has you covered. At her Etsy shop, Arixystix Creations, you’ll find detailed patterns for making your own felt army of Sunflowers, Peashooters, and WallNuts.
Even better, she offers pre-assembled kits, including wool felt, clay pot, and detailed instructions in a spiffy zombie box.
Now you have no excuse not to be prepared when the zombies come a-knockin’!
Here’s another great Christmas gift… Craftster user windgie79 crocheted her husband an entire set of Amigurumi zombies from the game Left 4 Dead. She used a pattern from Creepy Cute Crochet by Christen Haden of NeedleNoodles. This one is “The Smoker.” Definitely click through to see the rest!
I’ve been seeing really fun geek-themed terrariums on Pinterest lately, but not a lot of detailed how-to’s. Though it’s pretty easy to make a terrarium, it turns out you don’t just want to throw some sand and rocks in a jar and decorate with air plants, moss, and a few minis. That is, if you want your plants to actually thrive any way. So I tracked down a few generic terrarium making tutorials, including the great image above from the blog Something Turquoise. Another blog, Food 52, has great step-by-step instructions on making a terrarium as well. Once you’ve got those basics down, you can decorate your terrarium with any fandom you like. And there are tons of ideas out there. Here are a FEW of my personal favorites!
The official starwars.com has got this awesome Degobah Terrarium, with instructions.
This terrarium is for sale on Moss Love.
This one features one of my favorite superheroes! And there are even instructions on the blog Sweet Happy Life if you’re interested in making your own.
This Zombie Terrarium is also for sale on Moss Love. I ADORE this idea.
What fandom themed terrarium would you create?
