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.

My son’s version of the Lego Minecraft Creeper

 

This was a fun project for my son.  He wanted to add a Minecraft creeper to his Lego creation shelf.

This particular piece is made completely from Lego bricks. Green, light green,  white and black bricks for the toes and face.  There were no special bricks used.
