For starters here's the invitation I created from an idea I found on the internet. Cute and different from the regular invitation styles. I created it using MSWord and have attached the file that you can download in the link below. There are four (4) tickets on one sheet that you can customize for your use.
Even the light fixture received a little Minecraft feel with the look of flames. I used some red felt cut into shapes to wrap around the outside side of the light glass shades and stapled in areas to keep it wrapped together. Then added some yellow tissue paper to the top edge of the shade, formed the paper to look like a flame and taped it in place.
On to another wall, perfect surface to add some trees Minecraft style. Supplies used:
Wood grain shelf liner for the trunks and colored paper/construction paper in three shades for the leafs.
who crashes the party as a piñata. Homemade for the occasion.
Now for the Decorations
I didn't want to decorate the entire living room/dinning area so I can up with a way to section it off. I created a faux wood wall using two rolls of brown kraft paper which were tapped together in sections and attached to the ceiling and floor. (I used masking tape to attach it to the floor and ceiling)
Next for some wood blocks, I used a roll of wood grain shelf liner and cut some squares and attached to the wall.
Here's a couple links to templates for:
I added a piece of red felt and yellow tissue paper in the top ends to give a look of flames.
The banner I printed out on a couple sheets of paper and taped together.
Custom Birthday Banner
Keeping with the square look, I used black square paper plates (dollar tree) and a pack of decorative square crafty paper another dollar tree find. Tape the two together and used a sharpie to write the letters.
Can't forget a CREEPER
Used black shelf liner and green paper to create and attach to the mirror.
The party games - make your own Minecraft head and followed up with Enderman the piñata. I had pre-printed Steve and Creeper head templates and had it colored copied at a store. Purchased some cardboard boxes and had several rolls of scotch tape on hand. The boys pieced these together and made there own .
and lastly it's cake time.
My son requested a green frosted cake with Minecraft spelled out and this is what I created. The word Minecraft, red hearts, number 10 and brown life boxes are made from white/chocolate squares melted and piped while hot onto wax paper. When cooled the hard candies placed onto the cake. A grass frosting tip was used around the edge of the cake.
