Minecraft Birthday Party

Minecraft partyMy middle son just turned twelve, and we had a Minecraft birthday party for him. He chose the theme, and set up the LAN game for his friends. My part in the celebration was to provide Minecraft decorations and treats. Challenge accepted!

First of all, let me admit that I’m not a super-crafty “Pinterest” mom who does this kind of thing very often. But since this boy didn’t get a birthday party last year, I felt like making a bit more effort for him this time. The project ended up being really fun, and he was excited about the results.

Since I had to search and gather the elements for these crafts, I figured I’d put them together to share. If anybody else wants to use them, go right ahead. I hope you enjoy these free Minecraft printables.

Minecraft Birthday Invitations

Here is the invitation I made: Blank Minecraft Printable Invitation. I found a Minecraft dirt and grass background, put a text box on top of it, and then just printed it out. I downloaded a free Minecraft font to use for the text.

Minecraft Potion Bottle Labels

These cute bottles of punch are just perfect for little Minecraft potion labels. The kids thought they were amazing! It was quite easy to make them. I found images of the different Minecraft potions, put them into rows on a page, printed it, cut it into strips, wrapped them around the bottles, and taped them together in the back.

Minecraft Creeper Face Cupcake Picks

Print this page of Creeper faces onto cardstock, cut the faces apart, and tape them onto toothpicks. Then poke the picks into your cupcakes or other treats.

You can also print this onto plain paper and cut strips of faces to wrap around water bottles or other drinks. The kids love “Creeper Juice.”

Those are all of the printables I made for this Minecraft party. I’ll do a separate post on how I made the dirt and grass blocks. They were cute and delicious (and gluten-free, if you’re concerned with that kind of thing). [UPDATE] Here is the recipe for the Minecraft dirt and grass treats!

    Thanks so much for your free printables. My son wanted a Minecraft Party so I searched high and low. My niece found your site and you are a life saver. He came home from school today and he is thrilled to see all the cool crafts I have been working on for his party.
