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!
What you need to make your own DIY Minecraft Pickaxes:
- Pen or marker.
- 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 of 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.
