My daughter absolutely loves Minecraft. She plays it on her iPad and Xbox, and the kids have the entire LEGO Minecraft collection and of course the cardboard building set you can purchase in big box stores.
Last week was their 8th birthday and although I didn’t come through with a huge Minecraft birthday party they wanted, they forgave me when I pulled off a few fun Minecraft surprises for them like the Minecraft school lunch I made and these earrings that I made for Marisol.
These earrings are fairly quick and easy to make. I was inspired by the pig that comes inside the LEGO Minecraft Micro World ‘The Village’ Building Set.
What you need:
- Pink LEGO blocks – square flat one and a single block with a hole in the front.
- Black and white fine Sharpie paint markers (or a black regular Sharpie)
- A strong glue such as E6000
- Duct tape
- Drill – must have a small drill bit. I used an Electric Bead Reamer
- Eye pins
- Earrings – I used the lever back because I felt they’d be more secure on my daughter’s ears.
Drill a hole through the top of the LEGO brick.
Using duct tape on the flat LEGO piece, create blocks for the eyes and nose and fill them in with a Sharpie (see image above). Make sure each section is dry completely before layering duct tape over the top for the next feature. Once finished, attached the flat LEGO piece to the LEGO block.
Tip: If you mess up the square with the Sharpie and work very quickly, you can remove it from the LEGO block using a Mr Clean Magic Eraser.
Place the eye pin through the hole, and then using the pliers carefully fold the sharp end back up inside the base of the LEGO block. Put a little glue inside and set it aside to dry. This will stop the eye pin from moving around or slipping out.
Attach the earring to the eye pin.
And you are all finished.
These fun little LEGO Minecraft earrings would make a great party favor.
