How to Make DIY Minecraft Steve & Creeper Halloween Costumes


 Update October 14, 2013: has Minecraft Wall Name Decals today for $9.99! I just picked one up for Sebastian’s room :)


Pin this Minecraft costume on Pinterest!

I don’t know about you, but my son AND daughter are both obsessed with Minecraft! The other night we were talking about Halloween costumes and they decided that they wanted to be Steve & a Creeper from Minecraft. After a quick search on Amazon for Minecraft costumes, I knew that it was going to be wayyy cheaper to make them!

I used a Duck Brand 12x12x10.5 box that I got at Walmart for $1.08. I also printed the images on both 8.5×11 & 11×17 paper because I wasn’t sure which one would work better. I ended up using the 11×17 paper and wrapping it like a gift. Unfortunately, I’m not that good of a rapper wrapper ;)

    wow… what a nice simple idea! did you use 11×17 card stock? where did you buy card stock that big? I have 8.5×11 matte photo paper, but I am afraid that it’s too small.

    So if I print this on 8.5X11 I just need s smaller box?

      Yes exactly! You may even be able to use one of the flat fee boxes from the post office :)

        Is there any way to make the printout on 8X10 larger so it will fit on the 12X12X10 1/2 box? My printer will not allow me to use 11X17 paper….

    Love this idea the best so far. I have 2 girls. One wants to be Creeper and the younger one wants to be Steve. I also saw another idea for “Fifty Shades of Grey” using the paint color swatches from a paint store. I might try getting some paint swatches for the heads in the proper shades for Steve and Creeper….and for the swords. Thanks for your picture and post!
