Mario Mushroom Stencil Art How-To

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!

Pacman Ghost Fused Glass Pendant

Today while procrastinating on several things, I received an e-mail from Lindsey, directing me to her etsy shop. While I was in there poking around, I found this Pacman Ghost Fused Glass Pendant. He’s little, he’s cute, and you can wear him! Lindsey also makes a “Scared” Ghost pendant,and I have this funny little fantasy about wearing both of them on a necklace with a Pacman in between.

Yip Yip Costume

Yip Yip Costume

Yip! Yip! Okay, so Sesame Street may not be the first thing you think of when you think of Halloween, or even geek crafts. Fine, but you have to admit these costumes are pretty awesome! Traci Lawson posted this great Yip Yip Costume with full instructons on her blog dedicated to children’s video games. Even if you don’t see yourself making your own Yip Yip Costume, I still suggest checking the instructional blog out, so you can see a video of Traci and her friend Yip Yipping in New York City.
