Much to my dismay, I still haven’t seen Where the Wild Things Are, but I’m enjoying all of the crafts to be found. For costumes, just search Craftster or Etsy for a ton of great ones.
Crafter extraordinaire Vickie Howell recently made this Game Boy stencil art piece for her son, who loves to play video games. She used a stencil from Ed Roth’s Stencil 101 Decor collection and freehanded the Mario image over it — she shares a complete tutorial for making your own version.
This isn’t Vickie’s first Mario-inspired craft project — check out her pattern and tutorial for knitting up a pair of Mario Mushroom Wrist Warmers as well!
I don’t know how geeky it is, but when we were visiting my in-laws in England, my father-in-law showed us several episodes of Shaun the Sheep (by the same people who did Wallace and Grommit) and I just fell in love! It’s a great little claymation and Leelou has done such an amazing job recreating Shaun in this adorable Shaun the Sheep Crochet Doll that she posted on craftster.
