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.
- 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.Now, using white glue, start gluing them in! I did a layer of glue on the bottom and sides then slid the tubes into place so it would coat the whole edge.Continue this until the whole lid is full. Then let it sit to dry under a fan or over night.Create a base using a rectangle piece of cardboard that is bigger than the side of your lid. 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…Ta-Da! His very own Minecraft mini figure storage…All together my version of Minecraft mini figure storage cost about $5, for glue and spray paint (which I have leftovers of both). He was happy, I was happy, and now all of his little mini figures are happy in their new home.
