My youngest son, Alex turned seven last month. He’s a HUGE Minecraft fan, so we decided to host a Minecraft bash to honor him. Once I started shopping for party favors, I nearly had a heart-attack when I saw the price tags! Then I thought to myself, how hard can this be? I can make my own party favors and rock this thing….I hope.
I gave this whole DIY thing a try and I was actually happy with the results! I saw tons of cool suggestions online, but there weren’t many printables, so I spent hours designing my own. To make YOUR LIFE EASIER I decided to put everything in one place. This is my DIY Minecraft Party with Printables. You’re welcome!

Creeper Goody Bags, Cups & Shirts
I decided to set-up a station where the kids could make their own goody bags at the end of the party. To save money, I bought plain green bags and cups from the local Dollar Tree, but you can also order all your supplies from Amazon. I printed out a Creeper Face Template and applied to the cups and bags using sharpie markers.

Printing Instructions for Cups and Bags
To make the image the correct size, follow the visual instructions below. Uncheck the “Fit to Frame” box, choose 3.5 x 5 size and 4 copies of the picture. That will make it small enough to fit on your goody bags and cups.
DIY Creeper Shirts
Use the Creeper Face image above and print on Iron On Transfers. Print it as size 8.5 x 11 and be sure to uncheck the “Fit to Frame” box. Then, cut the face out and iron onto the shirts according to the directions. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!
Minecraft Treat Bags and Food
This is the fun part! Minecraft has so many items, you can make a treat bag for just about anything you want. I also made tent cards for the food table. I made my life easier by ordering a big Chick-Fil-A chicken nugget and fruit tray. Go ahead and copy me!

How to Print Table Tents
I came across a really cool website that had printables and instructions for creating your own Minecraft Swords. This was the most challenging DIY project I did for the party. The swords looked cool, but the kids broke them with a quickness! Check out this blog for step-by-step instructions: How to Make Minecraft Swords and Pick Axe.
Creeper Cupcake Toppers
For the Cupcakes I was a little lazy. Shhh! I went to the local supermarket and had them make chocolate cupcakes with green “grass” icing. Then I just printed creeper faces and glued them to toothpicks. I had my youngest help me with this part. It was a fun project!
