My son Kayzen has recently become interested in Minecraft. Due to it’s popularity, chances are you have a Mincraft fan at home too. With a year full of birthdays and Easter ahead, I wanted to share with you this DIY Minecraft Creeper Basket I came up with!

Personally, I like Minecraft because it creates a challenge and requires children to think critically. With that being said, it’s easy to see why it has become so popular in the gaming world.

Although there is a line of Minecraft toys and LEGO’s available, there really isn’t a whole lot of other merchandise. Since my son has decided for his 5th birthday he wants a Minecraft party it’s time for me to start planning ahead and using my silhouette machine to make all sorts of Minecraft themed party decor. I also know that Easter is nearing so I wanted to knock out two birds with one stone so to speak. So I came up with a quick and easy basket. This basket only requires a few things and it’s very inexpensive to make (about $0.75 each). Ready to learn how to make your own? Check out the instructions below!

DIY Minecraft Creeper Basket

Supplies Needed:

  • Lime green square baskets (I found these in packs of 2 at Dollar Tree)
  • Silhouette Machine for cutting creeper out
  • Black Oracal 651 adhesive vinyl (my favorite is from Expressions Vinyl)
  • Your silhouette weeding tools to get a clean design from
  • Free Minecraft font download found HERE (the file from is safe. I cannot vouch for other downloads from other sites)


  1. Using your silhouette machine upload the Minecraft Creeper image into your silhouette software. In order to have the image fit onto the square baskets you will want your image size to be exactly 2.028″ x 2.021″ (see screenshot below).  creeper image traced
  2. Cut your image out in the adhesive vinyl and weed the image out.
  3. Using your contact or transfer paper align the image onto your basket. Helpful tip: If you plan on personalizing your basket with a name make sure you leave enough room to place that name onto it. creeper vinyl
  4. If you plan on personalizing with a name you can download the Free Minecrafter Font from Then type and cut the name in vinyl and repeat steps 2 and 3 above.
  5. You will then have a custom made Minecraft Creeper Basket that took only a few minutes to make and can be done for a few dollars! minecraft creeper basket2

Note: If you do not own a silhouette machine you can also use black electrical tape for the creeper image. Just tear pieces in the correct size and apply to the basket!

Disclosure: I was given vinyl from Expressions Vinyl to complete this project. The opinions expressed in this publication remain my own.


  1. These are pretty awesome! We are a Minecraft family, too, and yes, it’s hard to find great items like this so we are forced to be creative 🙂 I did an entire Minecraft party from scratch, too, and they turned out amazing! Check it out sometime (it has FREE printables, too!)

    Thanks for sharing your post at Inspire Me Mondays!

        Brandi thank you so much for stopping by and choosing this as one of your top favorites! I personally think it’s so fun to be creative and make your own party supplies (although it can take a bit of time). I am heading over to checkout your Minecraft Party post. Thanks for sharing!

      Thank you Amy! 🙂

  2. I loved making these exact baskets for my son last year for his birthday party. To help others that don’t have vinyl cutting machines, they can be advised to cut up black electrical tape to make the images.

    These baskets were a hit with party favors stuffed into them. They are awesome looking!

      Hi Robin,

      That is so fun you made these as well! I did mention in my post about using electrical tape. In fact, I purchased that first but decided I would like the look better with my silhouette but either way it’s a great and inexpensive idea! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
