Want to know an easy way to turn a bedroom into a Minecraft lover’s dream??? Check out this easy DIY Minecraft bedroom block wall tutorial.

Hi Friends! I’m continuing my series on updating my son’s room to a Minecraft room.  It’s been 10 years since his walls were painted so I knew those definitely needed to be done.  

I found some cute pictures of making blocks on the walls like in the Minecraft game.  I figured, why not?  I will only do one wall with blocks so in case he doesn’t like Minecraft in a year or two it would be easy to paint over just one wall.  

How do you do an easy DIY Minecraft bedroom block wall, you may ask??  All you need is two colors of paint, blue painter’s tape, rulers, and some fun music blasting in the background!

Here are the before and after pics!

  DIY Minecraft Bedroom Wall Block tutorial

A year ago, the OSH hardware store near us went out of business so they had their paint super cheap.  He picked out a green color and luckily I was able to persuade him that it would look perfect on his other walls!  

So, I painted 3 of his walls with the dark green color and only did his far wall with the window with faux blocks.  

On that wall, I painted the base coat a dark charcoal gray.  This is going to be the grout of the blocks so it can be any color you want, but anything a little darker than your top coat would be best.DIY Minecraft bedroom wall blocks

How to Paint Minecraft Blocks on a Wall

Then comes the fun part where you need some patience and some loud music!  Tell Alexa to play 80s pop music and get to work!!  You will start taping the wall.  

To forewarn you, if you have a textured wall, you will not get perfect lines.  The top paint will bleed under the tape in some places.  I thought it actually added a bit of a pixellated look, so I was fine with it!

I made my blocks 12 inches x 18 inches to make it easy.  I had a ruler that was 12 and one that was 18.  I started at the top and measured 12 inches down the wall and made chalk marks all the way across the wall.  

Then I put the tape so the top of the tape was on the line.  You can do it the opposite way (bottom of tape is on the line) but make sure you do it the same way throughout the wall.   how to paint minecraft blocks on wall

Once I had one strip across the wall, I started measuring 18 inches, adding a line of tape vertical, then measuring 18 over again, adding a line of vertical tape and so on til you get across the wall.

For the second row, you’ll want to measure from your fist intersection.  Since my blocks were 18 inches across, I put the 9 inch line in the middle of the vertical blue tape and made marks on each end of the ruler for that block. painting minecraft blocks on wall

Then you can just measure from that edge for the next block.  You might have to play with it a little around the window, but you’ll figure it out! DIY Minecraft bedroom block wall paint tutorial

I had to take off my two bottom rows because I measured wrong the first time…ugh!  But it all worked out, just took a little extra time!

That’s what the DIY Minecraft wall look liked with all the tape up.  Try to smooth the tape down as much as you can.  If your wall isn’t textured the lines will come out cleaner.  

Now just paint the lighter color paint (mine was gray) over the whole wall!  DIY Minecraft bedroom block wall paint tutorial

Once it’s pretty dry you can start pulling off the blue tape and here’s what you are left with!::

Like I said, not super crisp lines, but it kind of adds character to it and my son loves it!!

To add some more DIY Minecraft fun to the green walls, I cut some characters out with my Cricut.  They were anywhere from 2 feet to 3 feet tall! 

You can check out my video tutorial on how to make larger than mat cut out characters if you want to see how.

I had all the cardstock on hand so I didn’t even have to buy anything and he loves these things.  You can head on over to Krafty Nook to get the svgs!

Hi Amy your faux brick wall looks fab!..you've inspired me to attempt this in my own sons minecraft bedroom makeover. I'll be attempting on one wall, minus the window though..Could you advise me on the mm width of the frog tape/masking tape you used please as I currently have a 24mm width but dont know if that would be too wide for grouting between the bricks..thankyou for your time...charlotte

Hi Charlotte, thanks so much! I used a 1-inch painter's tape, so that's around 25mm. So 24 should be good unless you want a little smaller grout lines!
