DiY MINECRAFT Pickaxe


I had been very busy creating lots of props for J’s Minecraft party. I had this great idea to bring the game to life and I needed quite a few items to pull it off. I created these DIY Minecraft Pickaxes out of wood. It is one of the first items you can make in the game. They weren’t too hard to pull off and they definitely helped pull it all together!

Make these DiY Minecraft Pickaxe for your Minecraft fan. Make them for a room decoration, for a Minecraft birthday party, or just a fun craft!

 What you need to make your own DiY Minecraft Pickaxes:

  • Cardboard.
  • Pen or marker.
  • Ruler.
  • Box cutter, with a fresh blade.
  • Brown paint. Also either black or white to make a second shade of brown.
  • Square edged paintbrush and a paint roller. The roller is optional, but really speeds up the process.

Making your DiY Minecraft Pickaxes:

I did not have a foam pickaxe to copy so I used a picture from online and my sword edge to create the outline. Just think pixels when you are making your design. Use a ruler to make all of the edges straight. Then cut out. Use your first pickaxe to trace the rest.

Time to get painting. We only painted these 2-toned. We were making them wooden for the activity. You could always add more detail or make them diamond or iron if you wanted to.
I made J do most of the work on these. We started by doing the whole base in 2 coats of brown. Then with the square edge brush added in a bit more detail. Add these into the mix of party favors and these boys were all in heaven!Make these DiY Minecraft Pickaxe for your Minecraft fan. Make them for a room decoration, for a Minecraft birthday party, or just a fun craft!
Now these details are exact. I just free handed on the darker brown. They did their job for pulling together the game.

Check out more fun from the party!
