Crocheted Bowser Sweater

Why not dress your pet turtle up as everyone’s favorite baddie from the Super Mario Bros., Bowser, King of the Koopas!

I just had to do a follow-up post to my Crocheted Turtle Cozies! Jennifer Olivarez created this awesome Bowser costume for her friend’s turtle as part of the Make It! Challenge series on her blog Squirrel Picnic. And, just so we wouldn’t all be jealous, she shares detailed instructions with amazing step-by-step photos. Bowser sweaters for everyone!

Piranha Plant Papercut

Your plants either drown or die of thirst, but you still yearn for some nature in your living room? I know what you mean. My flowers in Plants versus Zombies hate me.

Now, paper might not be the same as roots and leafs, but at least it’s made of trees! So why not decorate your wall with this Super Mario Brothers papercut silhouette? You’d rather have real foliage? Katrina Mason sells many pieces of art from Disney, video games and movies at her Etsy shop CuttingPixels.
