Super Mario Bowser Shell

Post may contain affiliate links, please see my Disclosure and Policy statement for details.

I was bound and determined to make a Bowser Shell with simple items. It isn’t my favorite project in how it turned out, but the kids really loved fighting Bowser (my husband) around the yard with ball pit “fireballs” so I’ll go ahead and give this one up as a thumbs up.

They had such a blast and it was fun to watch them play. It’s not about me…. Lol.

To make this, I purchased two green table coverings at the dollar store for $1 each.  I also bought a $1 package of orange party cups to use as the spikes on the shell.  I used a box cutter to cut two small holes big enough to loop a fabric belt through.

I looped the belt first, and then I wrapped the rest of the box “christmas present” style, securing it on the back with tape.  Lots and lots of tape!  I used strong black gaff tape to reinforce the holes in the box so it wouldn’t tear as easily with bouncing around.

I used clear tape to secure the cups onto the green wrapping.  I used tape all around the bottoms of the cups for a secure hold.  He used the belt to strap it around his chest.  My son still talks about that party so it was a successful venture. 🙂
