MINECRAFT!! Both of my kiddos are obsessed with this game but especially my son! So, it was the ONLY birthday theme option for his 8th birthday.
|There are so many invitation options available but my son decided on this one found here. |
We decided to personalize the invite by adding a picture of my son.
I decided to start this blog post out by sharing party pictures with you. Some will include information on where I found decorations/ideas and the homemade items will be detailed toward the end of the post.
|The sign was a free printable from here.|
I printed mine on card stock so they held up great!
|My inspiration for the party props came from here. |
Although, I have to admit that my "Steve" came out way bigger and cooler than I could have imagined.
|Some of my table inspiration came from here.|
|The "Potion of Healing" labels for the bottled water were free printable from here.|
I just added a little green food coloring to a clear punch for the "Creeper Juice".
|I found some ideas on Pinterest that led to this creation. |
The green is really neon for a creeper but it was a fun game.
|I also found some inspiration for this on Pinterest.|
I will show you how I made these later in this post.
The kiddos were great at setting the blocks back up after each game.
|I found this game idea on a Pinterest picture. |
There wasn't a printable so I created my own sheet.
|The cake! I combined some Pinterest ideas for this one and used some of my sons action figures to pull it all together.|
|SWAG bags for the guests!|
|Minecraft costume heads that I purchased at Target.|
|Decorations made out of paper towel tubes, colored paper, party printable, and pipe cleaners.|
|Steve was made out of a few boxes I had collected, gift wrap, poster board, tissue paper, and the head was painted.|
He was the hit of the party! I also took a picture of my son in front of Steve with each of the party guests.
|SWAG/gift bags for guests.|
|The favor tags were free to print from here.|
I have made these "ornaments" (we used them as charms for this) a few times. I originally saw the idea in a magazine (for Christmas ornaments) but heck if I can find that information now. I did find this video that walk you through how to make them. I'll give credit to my original source if I ever find it again.
|I found these cups at the dollar store and had to turn them into creepers!|
|Cut out the face.|
|Iron freezer paper on to the shirt. |
Make sure you have this attached really good around the face.
I ruined a couple of shirts due to the paint leaking out of the lines....
|Once the paint is dry, pull the freezer paper off. |
The shirts turned out way nicer than I thought!
They washed nicely after and I have seen many of our party guests wearing them aside from the party!
|Green gift bags that I used a sharpie marker to decorate.|
|A "creeper" version of one of my favorite treats!|
|What's in the SWAG bags.|
|Sugar cookie "Steve" too.|
How to make the creeper blocks:
|Print the creeper face on paper but transfer that to cardboard for extra thickness.|
|I used dollar store foam squares.|
I use these for other crafts so the cost was justified.
|Paint the creeper faces.|
My Minecraft Decorations/Games: I sold them all after I was done. I had no problem getting rid of them for a profit!
