Storage Boxes – Minecraft TNT & Creeper

As we were cleaning my son’s room, we noticed that he definitely needed some new storage boxes for his bedroom.  Most of them were very plain, so I started looking around the Internet for some ideas.  I found some Minecraft  storage cubes that were from an IKEA hack according to Pinterest but had no directions or source of information.  So I decided to create some of my own and use Google images to help me out with some of the drawing.

First, to create the storage boxes, I bought 2 fabric drawers from Wal-Mart, for $4.44 for each.  They weren’t anything fancy but they definitely did the trick.

I then added a pack of felt to my purchases that was also under $5.00.  It contained both the white and the black sheet that I needed and was Peel N’Stick.  This made drawing, cutting, and decorating a breeze!

To make the TNT box…  (feel free to make any modifications that you like. I’m just going to list what I did.)

  1. Cut a 4 inch wide piece of white felt.
  2. Using my ruler, I drew on the back of the black felt since it was easy to see and cut out 2 letter T’s, about 3 3/4 inch long & 2 1/2 inches wide.
  3. I made one N using two long rectangles- about 1 inch wide and 3 1/2 inches long and 2 1 inch x 1 inch square.
  4. I stuck the white piece on the red fabric drawer and stuck the black letters on top.  The result is below.

 

To make the Creeper, I used the rest of my black felt sheet to make 2 (2 in x 2 in) blocks for the eyes, 1 (2 in x 3 in) block for the middle piece and 2 (1 in x 3 in) pieces for the side of the mouth.  Started the eyes about an inch from each side of the box.  Result below.

Now, his room has a couple extra storage containers, not girly, and perfect for a 10 year old boy who loves Minecraft.
