Toilet Roll Minecraft – Meet The Creeper!

I have to admit this toilet roll Minecraft character came about accidentally!!

I set about making a robot and just before I attached the arms my daughter screeched “it’s a creeper”, so who was I to argue with that?

Minecraft Creeper craft made of toilet rolls, paint, paper, and glue.

What Is A Creeper In Minecraft?

For parents not versed in Minecraft, a Mincraft Creeper is a common monster in the game. It creeps around silently and blows up when it nears the player, damaging the player and the surrounding area.

While this was originally a robot, it is now a Minecraft craft and without further adieu, this is how you make a toilet roll Minecraft Creeper.

Supplies Needed To Make A Minecraft Creeper Craft:

This is super easy to make, and you may have a lot of the supplies already, but if not, we got you covered! (This post contains affiliates)

  • Toilet rolls
  • A small box (I cut down a kids medicine box to make it the right size)
  • Glue
  •  Craft paper
  • Green Paint

Note:

If you don’t have any craft paper, just sacrifice some pages from a magazine or newspaper.

How To Make This Toilet Roll Minecraft Creeper Paper Craft:

Step 1

Make two slits in two of the toilet rolls (the legs), and slot in the third toilet roll (the body) to stack on top.

You don’t need wooden planks for this or a crafting table! Just toilet paper rolls and a box.

Step 2


Glue the small box on top for the head, and paint the entire character green.

Make one of your favorite Minecraft characters by cutting slits into the cardboard and paint your Creeper green.

Step 3


When the creeper is dry, invite your child to cut the craft paper into squares! Then pour some craft glue into a dish and get busy.

Add stickers and a face to your creeper! This is such a cute craft.


At the end of all the cutting, gluing, and character building – a Minecraft Creeper will emerge! You don’t need a low light source for your own Creeper to spawn! What a great way to use up some craft supplies like recycled items and acrylic paint and keep Minecraft game lovers busy.

Notes:

Use the same Creeper craft technique to expand the characters to include your child’s favorite Minecraft animals and villagers. And use blocks to build a cardboard Minecraft world right on your table…. instead of on your phone or tablet.

This is a fun way to get engaged in something your child enjoys. You don’t need gold ingots, end rods, a red mushroom, or magma blocks to enjoy these crafts. (Those are items from the video game.)

You can even use this Minecraft Creeper setup to make other Minecraft items like an armor stands, diy Minecraft swords, or use boxes and paint to make your own Minecraft world, one that doesn’t involve a screen.
