Minecraft Rose Paper Art

If your kid is a Minecraft fan who might like to create pixel art on paper rather than on a screen, this simple craft is just for them! With just paper, scissors, and glue, little hands can Mine-craft (get it?) a picture of a rose for someone special on Mother’s Day, birthday, or any day.

What You Need

Minecraft Rose Paper Art

  • Rose template (link below)
  • Maroon, red, dark green, light green, and brown cardstock or construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Get Started!

Begin by downloading and printing this template, based on the rose on the fantastic site Minecraft Pixel Art Templates.

Next, cut small squares of the color cardstock, about 2cm in length and height. This is a great opportunity for little hands to practice scissors skills, even if they don’t cut the squares exactly right.

Use the template to glue each square into the appropriate spot.

If the printer ink doesn’t make the color obvious, here’s a key to the abbreviations on the template:

  • R = red
  • M = maroon
  • LG = light green
  • DG = dark green
  • B = brown

If your little one is too small for scissors or lacks the patience for glue, they can simply color in each block with crayons or markers.

Once the glue is dry, you can frame the rose as a gift, or simply use the page as a card to write “Happy Birthday” or “Happy Mother’s Day!”
