How to make your own Nintendo Question Block

I had the idea a while back to make my own Nintendo Block and I wanted to share with you all how to make your own. After this you know your going to want to play mario.

Items need:
1) Styrofoam Block (We used 5in x 5in x 5in)
2) Yellow Paint (Our Color: Bright Yellow)
3) White Paint (Our Color: Snow White)
4) Brown Paint (Our Color: Dark Chocolate)
5) Small Paint Brush
6) Medium Paint Brush
7) Paint Tray (useful but not needed)

Start by painting a few sides of your block yellow. Allow those sides to dry because we don’t want to get paint everywhere. After the Nintendo block has dried, finish painting the other sides of the block. Make sure you go back and try to fill in some of the white left over that you may have missed.

Now that your block is all yellow and given time to completely dry, its time to add the question and bolts to it. I started with the question marks because they will be the hardest part of this project. I tried a few different ways and I found that making a stencil helped the most. If I figure out an easier way I’ll updated you all. To finish your block just dot some circles on each corner and your done! I think my next project will be something like the one up mushroom or any mushroom from mario.


If you would like one for yourself and do not feel like making it or want to help support the site, I can make one for you.
