Building a craft with your hands: Minecraft door hanger

Do you love gaming, but need to exercise your mind in other ways as well this summer? Try making some door hanger crafts, themed with a favorite computer or video game, such as Minecraft.

Supplies needed:

• One sheet of green or white construction paper or foam sheet

• Scissors

• Black marker


1. Start by cutting the construction paper or foam sheet the length you’d like the door hanger to be.

2. Cut out a circle at the top for the door handle to fit.

3. Using a black marker, write your favorite Minecraft saying in the middle under the cut out circle. Try using block letters which represent the block theme of the game. We drew a “Creeper” and used the saying, “Creep On In.”

If you like your new Minecraft door hanger, you can make more by experimenting with themes from your other favorite computer and video games. Make a set of seven, and have a different door hanger to use on your bedroom door each day of the week.
