As I have mentioned in one of my previous blogs, my son is obsessed with Minecraft. He has a Minecraft shirt (last year’s Christmas present), a Minecraft poster (also a present from last year), of course, the Minecraft game, and homemade Minecraft wall art. He is also learning Java (no, it’s nothing coffee related, but rather a programming language that will help him create his “own Minecraft game”- someday).
Since I recognize his love for Minecraft, I decided to add to his collection of Creepers and Zombies. Last night, I finished a pair of DIY Minecraft shoes which will be one of his Christmas presents (my son doesn’t read my blog, so it’s o.k. to post it here). Should you have a Minecrafter in the house, try this fun and fairly simple project.
Start with a blank canvas. I bought the shoes for $9 at Walmart.
You can use permanent markers or fabric markers
Using a popsicle stick, draw lines to create a grid
I colored the back of the shoes first. I didn’t follow a color pattern for my squares.
Thank you so much. It was a lot of fun making the minecraft shoes for my son. There isn’t a right or wrong way… anything goes and no one else has the exact same shoes. I bet your nieces will have fun doing it.
Oh my goodness. My kids would love if I made these for them. All four of my kids play Minecraft and dressed up as Minecraft characters for Halloween. Pinned. Thanks again for linking up to Merry Monday.
Thanks, Jennifer for the sweet comment. I ended up making two pairs; one for my son, and one for a friend. What’s nice about this project, each pair of shoes is unique. My son really likes that. Have fun making them!
Hi Julie, thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the Minecraft shoes. It took about 2 hours to do one pair (I also did one for a friend). To speed up the process you could draw the lines for them and they can color in the squares. Have fun with it!
