How to make a Tormented Tulip AKA Piranha Flower

Pirahna Flower 2So you want to make your own Mario Piranha Flower? Well your in luck! This is the how I made my flower and I have to say it was a blast. I started out with a foam ball and cut a slit into the ball. You don’t want to go too deep and you want it to look like Pac-Man when your done. Next I drew an oval around the slit making lips. I used a Dremel (on low) to shave away the excess foam to give the lips some shape. Your almost there!

Using your Dremel shave away the inside of the mouth so that the lips have full form and give it better definition. Painting your flower is really simple. You need two colors (red & white). I started with red but I guess it really doesn’t matter which you start with. I would suggest red because you will need to let it dry before you add the dots to the back of the flower. You dont want to waste your time and paint right? Lastly I used a stem from an artificial flower and removed the top to expose the wires. I gently pushed the wire into the foam and BAM! Your very own Mario Flower! See the finished product HERE
