Make a Minecraft Creeper T-Shirt

My kids, especially our two oldest boys LOVE Minecraft which is why they were so excited to make a Minecraft t-shirt. 

Minecraft is a rather simple game that has been popular for years! It really looks like old school 8-bit video games, but Minecraft is filled with adventure and danger.

The kids have made big houses, small houses, sprawling horse ranches, a roller coaster, an underground maze of tunnels to nowhere, portals to alternate worlds.

Minecraft has become ingrained in the culture of our home. So you can imagine the excitement when the boys found out what they were going to Make a Minecraft T Shirt!

In case you’re not familiar with the characters of the game, you will be making a Creeper shirt. A Creeper is a green monster who is super sneaky and if you don’t get away it goes KABOOM! Messing up everything around it.

How To Make A Minecraft T-Shirt:

Step 1

Cut the foil or cardboard to fit inside your T-shirt.

Step 2

Insert it up into the shirt. You will need this to keep the paint from bleeding through the fabric.

Step 3

Be sure to make sure that your insert is big enough.

Step 4

To Make a Single TShirtCut the Masking Tape Into the Following Segments:

  • 2″ by 3″ – you will need 3 segments
  • 2″ by 4″ – you will need one
Step 5

You will also need to make a “frame” with remaining masking tape.

Step 6 

After you have your tape cut, place them into the mine-craft creeper face “shape” on your T-shirt.

Step 7

Fill-in the face by painting first with white acrylic paint. Depending on the quality of the paint and how thick you paint, you might need to do two layers.

Step 8

Wait for the white to dry and then paint neon over that. Once the neon has dried, mix one-half neon paint with one-half glow-in-the-dark paint.

Step 9

Do a final coat with the “fun paint”.

Step 10

Allow the creeper face to fully dry before removing the masking tape – Carefully!

Notes:

This shirt is washable. Your creeper face is there to stay!
