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!
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.

Brian Nelson on Techerator posted this fantastic tutorial for How to make your favourite nintendo characters with perler beads. I love perler beads (actually, I use hama beads, because that’s what’s readily available in the UK, but they’re exactly the same thing so…) and I haven’t made anything out of them for about 10 years, so I bought myself a load of hama beads in all different colours, and put the tutorial to the test!
Being as it’s been so long since I did anything with hama beads, I started with something really simple – a mario mushroom! I also put several rows of beads around the edges of the design to make a coaster! (I love my creations to be functional!) See my attempt after the cut!
