How To Create A Minecraft Bedroom

Written by

My son loves all things Minecraft and I was planning to decorate his bedroom, so here’s my guide on how to create a Minecraft bedroom, including a Creeper lightshade tutorial!

As I do with any home improvement project, I turned to Pinterest for some Minecraft inspiration! As the room is quite small, I didn’t want to add extra furniture like the pixellated boxes that you can buy and we didn’t want to have to change any of the light fittings. You can buy some pretty cool Minecraft torches to mount on the wall for lighting but his light is a centre ceiling light so I just wanted to find a suitable lightshade plus some bedding and try to keep the walls as easy as possible. However finding a lightshade proved more tricky than I thought so I ended up making one!

I wanted to keep the walls quite plain but also in a shade that could still be valid once his Minecraft obsession ends! As he gets older, the grey walls will still look cool and provide a blank canvas that we can dress up to whatever his passions are in the future, and the blue blind was what he had in his room before. It went well with the walls so we didn’t want to change it. We did however, source some wall decals in Leeds, from a local designer.

The Minecraft Bedding was from Amazon and as I was unable to find a Minecraft branded light shade anywhere, I made one of a creeper face! As the design is ‘boxy’, it was really easy to do! Here’s how…

How to make a Creeper lightshade, Minecraft

I purchased a plain green square shaped light shade from ASDA. Then I got some thick black craft card. One A4 sheet should be enough.

I drew an outline of the eyes- I just did a box of 6x6cm and cut two of them out. Then I drew the mouth freehand- I did what looked right when the eyes were positioned on the shade but the width of my mouth across the widest part is 9.5cm. Then I used superglue to fix the card to the lightshade!

My craft project took about 30 minutes to do and my son is over the moon with his unique new Minecraft themed bedroom!
