While a lot of the set up for this party was time-consuming. These DIY Minecraft Torches were not! They were my favorite thing that I made. I wish I had made enough that each kid could take home their own Minecraft Torch, but I didn’t have enough candles… I have actually made these a few times since!
In the game of Minecraft, one of the first things you need before it gets dark is to put up a few torches. These torches actually lit up enough to use them in our activity! They make great decorations as well as an excellent prop for a fun activity and another fun item that the kids could take home as a party favor.
What you need to make your own DIY Minecraft Torches:
- Box cutter.
- Paint. Brown, Yellow, & White.
- Square edged paintbrush.
- Fake tealights.
- Hot glue gun and glue.
- Rubber bands.
Making your DIY Minecraft Torch:
Start with a 3″x 10″ piece of cardboard. A flap off of an Amazon box works great! Score every 1.5″ (cut but not all the way through)
Fold into shape then unfold again to paint.
You can paint these free hand using a square brush. They don’t need too much detail. Just give them a brown base coat. Then a few lighter and darker brown squares. Next, alternate shades of yellow along the tops. Make sure the top is a square shape.
Run a long bead of hot glue along the seam and attach quickly. Hot glue starts to dry fast.
Use a few rubber bands to secure together while they dry.
For the final touch add in a tealight. (a fake one)
They will fit snug, you will not need to attach them. This way you can take them in and out to turn the flame on and off.
I think Little Miss was trying to blow this one out.
If I could go back in time these would have been used to decorate my cake table and posted up on the walls. These kids loved to take them home.
