Make Your Own Super Mario Bob-Ombs with This Tutorial
Some props in Super Mario are near constant presences in the game, regardless of when the game is released and what platform it’s on. For examples, several iterations of Mario feature Bob-Ombs. The walking explosives have a cute toy-like look, but they pack a powerful punch. YouTuber and redditor JavaHero came up with a tutorial for making the prop. He starts with a plastic Christmas ornament in a sphere shape (you can get at pretty much any craft store). Watch all the steps come together in the above video.
