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.

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.
