Super Mario Brothers Coasters Set 2

As I mentioned on Monday, here is the second set of Super Mario Brothers Coasters that go with the first set of coasters.  I really have a full collection of Super Mario Brothers Perler Bead Art for Mellow Man’s Father’s Day gifts!  I have included this set, for more images that I liked: the Cheep Cheep, Lakitu’s Cloud, the Star Power Up and the Question Block.  I have also created the downloadable patterns to go with each design, as well as, sharing the original source that inspired me to create the coaster.

Super Mario Brothers Coasters Set 1

As I mentioned a few days ago, the Mellow Man really likes Super Mario Brothers, so I made him some Fan Art with Perler Beads.  I had so much fun that I decided to work on a few more Father’s Day gifts for him that were inspired by my Mario Brothers Pinterest Board, particularly the Perler Bead coasters.  As I mentioned with the Fan Art, I love the way that the 8 Bit, traditional Nintendo characters can come alive with the Perler Beads.  When I found some wonderful coaster collections online I knew that I needed to make my own.  The problem was the lack of patterns out there, and the way the collections didn’t have the key characters and elements that I wanted to include.  My goal was to piece together a collection of 12 Super Mario Brothers characters and elements with a case for Mellow Man for Father’s Day.  Since there were so many pieces and patterns, I am going to present all of these coasters and the case in three separate posts this week.  I’m also including downloadable patterns for each of them, in case you want to make your own.  I hope having them all on one site will save you some time that you can use for creating!

Super Mario Brothers Perler Bead Fan Art

Super Mario Brothers games are kind of the Mellow Man’s thing.  We have gaming systems that are for the whole family, but the Mellow Man is the master of Super Mario Brothers.  He’s told me that he first got hooked on the original Super Mario Brothers on the NES system in the late 80’s.  He also played Donkey Kong before that.  Since the original game, he has every Mario Brothers game that nintendo released.  It’s the main reason we got a WiiU– to play the new MarioKart and Super Mario Brothers.  I get him a lot of Mario Brothers related gifts, and fan art.   While I usually buy his Super Mario Art, for Father’s Day, I decided to make him a present for his office using a painting canvas and Perler beads (affiliate link).  I love how it turned out, and thought he could put it next to his “Seriously” sign.
