In this tutorial these steps will guide you how to make a cheap and easy homemade minecraft prop.
You will need:
Paper (Any type)
I also suggest to use thick cardboard. Takes longer to cut but feels more cooler.
Step 1: How to make an easy homemade MineCraft prop (cheap)
You will need a printer with all the ink usable, otherwise you would have black and white props or incorrectly coloured props that ruins the picture.
Step 2: How to make an easy homemade MineCraft prop (cheap)
If you are using cardboard from a box like me, cut it into a small flat surface big enough for your picture. If your box is small, You do what I do. You must cut all the sides off and glue them altogether to make one flat area for you to glue your picture onto.
Step 3: How to make an easy homemade MineCraft prop (cheap)
Now on a computer or laptop, go to Google Images (click here
) and search for your MineCraft Item Name (eg: 'Minecraft Golden Apple' or 'Minecraft Diamond Pickaxe')
Step 4: How to make an easy homemade MineCraft prop (cheap)
Try and look for the best type of item with a white background also make sure its the default texture if you want. (eg: Some golden apple textures on Google images have the texture of the Apple to be coloured gold but has no light reflection on the apple.)
Step 5: How to make an easy homemade MineCraft prop (cheap)
When you have found your picture you may print it. I suggest using Paint.net
or other programs
for it to print because Paint.net has printer options to show you how big or small you want your picture to be. First time I printed it was very tiny about 2 inches so I used paint.net and it worked like a charm. Also if you want you can print a second copy of the picture at the same size if you want your prop double sided.
