Craft Projects for Minecraft and Pixel Art Fans

Our household is full of boys who are obsessed with all things Minecraft.  I am obsessed with all things craft.  So when I found Craft Projects for Minecraft and Pixel Art Fans I knew I had to have it, and I had to make my boys some things out of it.

Craft Projects for Minecraft and Pixel Art Fans
This is an unofficial guide, which means it was not released by the same people who created the massive pixelized sandbox game that is Minecraft.

This book of Minecraft craft projects comes from Choly Knight, who is no stranger to crafty project books.  (Check out her page at

The beginning of this book tells you a little about how our world is full of pixel art and design that we may not even be aware of.

That is followed by 10 pages of pictures of other peoples Minecraft inspired projects.  Everything from food, to party decor, to entire bedrooms.

Then she goes on to tell you a little about the Minecraft game and the popular and fun creatures that inhabit it.

Each of her crafts come with a 5 level difficulty rating, based on minerals from the game. Grass is the easiest level, and the black one whose name I can't remember is the Max difficulty.

The next section goes over the supplies you will need to complete the projects in this book.  I like that she includes helpful tips for people who might not be familiar making crafts with things like perler beads and duct tape.

The projects themselves range from simple pixel art paintings, to perler bead key chains.  She even gives you a project to do with the empty rolls you have left over after completing your duct tape Minecraft projects.  And we all know how much we like recycled projects here at A DIY Day.

Most of the projects are simple enough for Minecraft fans to do themselves.  It might encourage them to get off of the game for a little while and get crafty.  Besides, they would still technically be playing minecraft.  

Projects I Made From This Book

Minecraft Creeper Canvas


  1. My kids are all grown so I don't have a clue about MindCraft. A few of my younger grandchildren do love it though.

  2. I love doing pixel art on my computer. I use to make pixel signature tags all the time.

  3. This sounds interesting but I'm not really into Minecraft.
