This instructable will show you how to make a Minecraft Diamond Pickaxe. 

Step 1: Gather the Materials

Gather the following materials turquoise duck tape, black and brown tempera paint, a 13" x 13" piece of foam board, a ruler, scissors, a pencil, x-acto knife, two paint brushes, and a picture of a Minecraft diamond pickaxe in pixel form.

Step 2: Making the Grid Part 1

Draw 12 horizontal lines one inch apart. 

Step 3: Making the Grid Part 2

Rotate the foam board so the horizontal lines are now vertical and repeat the last step to form a grid. Then repeat steps 2 and 3 on the other side of the board. 

Step 4: Drawing Your Pickaxe

Use the pixel pickaxe picture to draw the pick axe on your grid. 

Step 5: Cutting Out the Pickaxe

Use the x-acto knife and the edge of a table and cut the outer edge of the pickaxe you drew.

Step 6: Cutting Out the Other Side of Your Pickaxe.

Cut out the other side like you did in step 5.

Step 7: Painting the Pickaxe Handle

Place some of your brown tempera paint on a paper plate. Spread paper towels under the pick axe for easy clean up. Paint your pickaxe handle one pixel at a time, using various amounts of brown to give it different shades of brown. Continue until your handle is completely painted. 

Step 8: Painting the Outer Rim

Next pour some black tempera paint on to a paper plate. Using a clean brush, paint the outside pixels of your pick where the diamonds will be.

Step 9: Filling in the Diamond

Gather the turquoise duck tape, pencil, and your scissors. Cut a 10 inch long piece of duck tape, stick the end of it to the edge of the table. Make about a 1 inch cut in the center of the shorter end of the piece of duct tape you cut, then it will tear the rest of the way. Next cut two 5 inch pieces from that strip and place on your pick axe. With the other piece of duct tape, cut it into two 2 inch long pieces and one 1 inch long piece. Place those on your pick axe. Repeat with the other side.
