This Minecraft storage box is an easy and fun project for kids to make. They get to learn some basic construction skills, create a decoration for their room and store their items! This also makes a great gift for the Minecraft fan in your house!
Minecraft Storage Box Prep
Before you get started, gather all of the materials you’ll need. This Minecraft Storage Box will use paint, fabric, and wood glue to create a one-of-a-kind storage box that is too good to just store stuff in. You’ll also need the following:
- A pencil or pen
- A bucket of water
- Safety glasses and work gloves
- Sandpaper (medium grit)
Now that you have everything in place, it’s time to get started on making your own minecraft themed storage box! First, move all furniture and clutter out of the way so there is plenty of room for working on this project. Next we’re going to prep our workspace by sweeping away any dust or debris that might interfere with our project later on. Finally we’re going to prep our tools by using sandpaper on both sides of each piece before starting construction
Minecraft Storage Box Design and Construction
- Get some paper, a pencil and a ruler.
You will need to design your Minecraft storage box on paper before you start making it. It’s best if you have someone else help you with this part of the project because they can be more objective than you, who knows what things might work well for your project. Draw out the dimensions for the box first (it should be about 20 inches by 20 inches). Then draw an outline where all the walls will go and how big they are going to be (the panels should add up to slightly larger than 1 foot). If there is going to be any room between wall panels, make sure that it is less than 1/2 inch so that it fits snugly together when put together later on.*
Make sure that everything is sturdy enough to hold its contents without breaking apart under heavy pressure from above or below.*
Minecraft Storage Box Decoration
You are on your way to making a Minecraft storage box. Before we get started, it is important to consider the design and materials of the finished project. Your Minecraft Storage Box needs to look like it came straight out of a cave in Minecraft!
The most obvious technique for achieving this effect is with paint or markers. You can use these materials to color your storage box like the blocks found in Minecraft, or you could choose an entirely different approach: perhaps building a wooden chest from scratch out of pine planks will give you that authentic look?
You might also want to think about how your storage box will be used. If you want something small enough for toys or books, go for something simple like cardboard; if you need something big enough for clothes or shoes try using plastic bins sold at craft stores like Michael’s (or even just throw pillows).
