Hi, I will be showing you guys how to make a Creeper from Minecraft to hold your phone in pixelated style.

Items:
1 bottle of wood glue
2 bags of 500 half inch cubes (link to website below) 
6 cans of spray paint (White, black, green, light green, dark green, and flat green)
You can use any paint you want but I find spray paint is the easiest way for this.

First go to here to order the cubes: http://www.craftparts.com/wooden-blocks-cubes-p-2620.html?cat_id=212

You will need to order 2 bags of 500 half inch cubes.

Separate the cubes into 6 piles for the spray paint. When spray painting the cubes spray it so that you paint 2 sides of the cube as in the picture. The back end should be the regular unpainted wood. Do this for each color. 

Step 3:

After the cubes have dried put a handful of black cubes off to the side and the rest of them into a plastic bag and mix them up thoroughly. The Creepers design is a random pattern of all the color cubes.

Step 4:

This is where you start to glue the cubes together. You can leave the inside hollow of the body and head. Make sure the paint is facing the outside. Glue the raw wooden parts together following the pattern I have in the pictures. Starting with the feet the build is 3 cubes by 3 cubes.

Step 5:

The fronts length is 3 cubes high by 8 cubes wide. On the bottom of the feet it has a pattern of Black/Green/Black/Green/Black/Green/Black/Green. The rest will be cubes of random colors.

Step 6:

From a side view: The body is 10 cubes high and 4 cubes wide. The head is 6 cubes wide and 7 cubes tall.

When building the head make sure the inside of the head/body is hollow. This will make sure you have room to make the holding spots for your phone.
How much are these cubes gonna cost?

This is very nice but a bit hard to make with all the wooden cubes :P Still a great project though.

As with most DIY projects it only takes time. It's not difficult at all. It's as simple as gluing cubes together. I could see it being difficult if you had to cut the cubes yourself but I put a link up to a site to get the cubes easy. No power tools are needed for this.
Sorry for the bad wording, I meant time consuming as in hard.

Oh, it does take about 6-7 hours.
Awesome! Looks like fun like a huge 3D puzzle!
