I finally had a chance to upload my son’s minecraft party photos ;) The party was LOTS of fun and my stress level very low. Please take a look below at the details and links to all the resources I used. This is one of the smoothest parties I’ve ever thrown. Granting the fact we had a house full of boys! Hope you enjoy ;)

Minecraft welcome sign

Welcome sign outside my home.

  • Sign: I bought 2 pieces of wood at Ben Franklin craft store and covered them with green and black duck tape. Very easy and no mess!
  • “Stefan welcomes you”: You can download the font “minecrafter” from dafont.com. Then print it out and cut it with scissors or an exacto knife.
  • Stickers: Minecraft stickers are from Amazon.

Minecraft Photo Booth

Guests arrived and have their picture taken at “photo booth”

  • Poster: I used a white poster board, green and black duct tape. I started covering the poster board with both tapes, trying to evoke a “grid”. Then I found an image of  “Steve” and “creepers” on google. Made a prints and glued it to the poster board.
  • Photo booth props: I made these using Ben Franklin die cut center. Once I had my shapes cut, I used chevron paper straws as sticks.

  • Black envelopes: these contained sheets of home-made stickers. Another awesome blogger created a tutorial on how to print minecraft stickers on address labels! Brilliant.
  • Green grass looking decor from amazon
  • TNT blocks: visit pixel minecraft paper crafts and download TNT template.

Mining game outdoors

Each boy had a pick axe. The game consisted of each one taking turns to "mine" in the backyard and find 1 treasure chest.

  • Pickaxes: I downloaded a diamond pickaxe template from Pixel Minecraft paper crafts website. The template is for a 3D pickaxe, but in order to save time I only used the front and back of the pick axe and glue it on to cardboard paper.
  • Treasure chests: I bought 8 wood treasure chest at Ben Franklin and covered them with the chest texture from minecraft. This involved cutting and pasting in Photoshop the exact areas of the chest I needed to cover.

Minecraft pop-corn bags.

Minecraft pop-corn bags. After the kids were done “mining” in the backyard, I brought them back in to play minecraft. We only have 1 controller at our house, so I had the boys take turns playing and while the other boys watched their friend play, they happily ate kettle corn pop corn.

  • Green bag: Ben Franklin die cut center has a template for these bags. I used a bright green card stock paper and found a creeper image on google images.
