Super Mario Birthday Candy Bar

This was the candy bar I set up for Masons Bday

I used a mold for Mustaches, Jelly beans for Yoshi eggs, Twizzlers for the beanstalk plant, fire balls for fire power, and i got the Kellogs Mario gummies too.  

Toad pops are marshmallows dipped in red chocolate and used white sprinkles for the spots. 

I got these flowers after easter .50 cents for a bag of 10 and I got three bags

Wii remote chocolate remotes used a mold I got from Amazon. Ended using 4 bags of chocolate that iI got at Michael's. This was my favorite it added a nice touch to our Mario theme. 

I loved how it turned out. The wall decals in the background of our table I got from Amazon. The goodie bags i got from the Dollar Store. The three cady jars I got from Hobby Lobby when they where having 50% off their glass wear. 

A behind the scenes shot of my sister in law doing the Toad Pops she was a great help and made most of the pops.

Piranha Plant

I made this for Masons Super Mario Part. I love how it turned out and it looked great at the party. I used a styrofoam ball cut a "V" and hollowed out the middle to put candy in it. I got the styrofoam ball at hobby loby and used a 40% coupon on it, ended paying around $5. I painted it read, cut circles and triangles from white felt (.23 cents a sheet used two)  to make the spots and the teeth. For the stem I used a dowel (.50 cents) and covered it with green felt (.23 cents a sheet).  I cut leaves from the remanding green felt and stitch some details the leaves with thread i already had at home. I went to Lowes and found the cheapest PVC pipe they had which was around $6. I spray painted it green (.99cents can from Walmart. I made a whole in the center of the head to put the dowel in and glued it in place. To keep the dowel in place in the pvc pipe I used more styrofoam ($1) stuck the dowel in the center and glued it to the pvs pipe.  To prevent it from going through the bottom of the pvc pipe I glued cardboard at the bottom

so this little project cost around $13

Birtday crafts

So here are a couple of things i have been working on for Mason Super mario Birthday

I wanted to blow up this image and trace it to use it for a game but I was not able to find a projector to use. I had to just grab a pencil and try drawing it. I have to say it turned out pretty good ill share another picture when I am done coloring it.

This is for some Mario and Luigi hats. I got the template from here.

This is the crowns im working on for the little girls. I got the template from a foam crown they sell at Michael's.
