DiY Minecraft Mini Figure Storage

If you have a Minecraft fan in your house you know about the Endless amount of toys that go along with the game. J’s newest obsession is collecting these little Mini Figures. Of course, I couldn’t stand having them all lying around, so this DIY Minecraft Mini-Figure Storage creation was made!!!

We all know that these Mini Figures are marketing gold. They come in mystery packs for $3 a piece, and the kids don’t even know what they are buying! On top of that, you can buy a case to display them in… for $20-$50. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of these little figurines, my son earns his own money and can spend it as foolishly as he pleases.


After researching the storage cases I realized I would just have to come up with a way to make a some sort of Minecraft mini figure storage myself. I don’t know how long he will be collecting them, but I do know that is too much money to spend on a case.

What you need to make your own DiY Minecraft Mini Figure Storage:Any MineCraft fan will love these easy DIY creations. Swords, Pickaxes, working Torches, and bricks. For decorating, party activities, or everyday play.

  • A Lid. Size depends on how many of these suckers you have lying around the house.
  • Toilet Paper Tubes or Paper Towel Tubes. The more the better!
  • White Glue.
  • Hot Glue.
  • A Piece of Cardboard.
  • Spray Paint.

How to make your DIY Minecraft Mini-Figure Storage:

First, cut your tubes. A toilet paper tube into 3rds or paper towel tube into 6ths. They do not have to be perfect. Some of the characters are bigger than others so the staggering sizes worked well for the stand… and my sanity.DiY Minecraft Mini Figure StorageNow, using white glue, start gluing them in!Make this DiY Minecraft Mini Figure Storage for your Minecraft fan.

I did a layer of glue on the bottom and sides then slid the tubes into place so it would coat the whole edge.Make this DiY Minecraft Mini Figure Storage for your Minecraft fan.

Then let it sit to dry under a fan or over night.Make this DiY Minecraft Mini Figure Storage for your Minecraft fan.

Use hot glue to attach it, this will make it much more stable. Then give it a few coats of paint. Just like J’s Lego mini figure stand, he requested black.

Next he added in all of his little mini figures…Make this DiY Minecraft Mini Figure Storage for your Minecraft fan.

This is such a brilliant idea for an upcycled storage center. The best part is that I can imagine it being used to store so many things and becoming a place to play.
