These DIY Minecraft Costumes are perfect for kiddos who love Minecraft and parents who love cheap & easy costume making!
Some years you get lucky with the Halloween costumes. Your child wants to be a “ghost” or a “black cat” or something else that can be easily thrown together.
Well this year the boys wanted to once again create epic costumes based on their favorite video game characters. Minecraft Steve and an Enderman. Just as I was contemplating how I could make these, my friend Shelby from Sweet and Cozy Childrens Gifts came to my rescue…
You see, Shelby’s sons had been these Minecraft characters for Halloween last year. She had created this Enderman costume for her younger son.
Minecraft Steve Costume:
And this Minecraft Steve costume for her older son already! So she very generously gave these costumes to us and took a huge weight off of my shoulders. It’s the first year in recent memory that I haven’t created the boys costumes completely from scratch.
The Enderman was made using one medium box and one small box. The medium box was wrapped in black card stock paper, purple eyes were taped on and two holes were cut for seeing out of.
The smaller box was wrapped in red card stock and a TNT sign was taped on. This box is perfect for collecting candy while trick or treating!
Minecraft Steve was made using one medium box and one large box. The medium box was covered tan paper and brown paper (for hair).
Square pieces of tan paper were taped on to create a pixelated look and holes were cut for eyes. The large box was covered with blue construction paper with tan/blue squares of paper taped on to create a pixelated look.
My boys are thrilled and totally excited to celebrate Halloween! I am thrilled that I can check one huge thing off of my to do list this fall!!! Thanks again Shelby! xo
