How to Make a Real Minecraft Torch




Introduction: How to Make a Real Minecraft Torch

About: A guy that enjoys doing the impossible.

How to make a real life Torch from the popular PC and soon to be console game "MineCraft". The build for me didn't cost anything to build but if you don't have any of the supplies, it will cost around 3-5 dollars. Please leave a comment about what you would like to see me build and I'll see you next week when I build a cheap light reflector.

    nice torch I hope to make it soon?

    Ha! It's works!

    I have not tried to make this yet but you could try to thin out the very top, put some crinkled tinfoil around a small LED light rigged to stay lit, and it might give off some light. (Tinfoil so it has a little bit of a shadowy light about it instead of a full of blaze of light.) Maybe you could make Glowstone... I would personally love that.

    Suggestion: Score the inside of the 4x8 in foam board and slice out angled sections (50 degrees or so is preferred) from each of the scored sections, do not puncture all the way through. Do the same to the outside edges. Put hot-glue lightly down the interior folds and a slightly heavier segment down the one where the two ends meet. This can be done for the top/bottom as well and makes the edges meet up much nicer.

    Just vewed your videos for the first time and I think you ROCK!!! We are going to make your torch and we also watched your pick axe video and we are going to try that also. Thak you :-) KEEP POSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    May I make a suggestion? The image of the instructable is not what the end result looks like. Try to use an image of what you have made next time.

    Stick a lot of glow-in-the-dark and replace that other paint so you can prevent creepers or zombies or skeletons or spiders or even spider jockeys.XD

    You know, you just inspired me to make another torch project. last time a light saber, now a minecraft Torch!


    neato, you should find a way to get a light inside them, and maybe mount them on a wall!

    I hope you read this, i REALLY need to know where to get that kind of foam stuff, and btw, you should make a Minecraft steak - cooked beef OR a porkchop. Thanks -mrtestchamber

    Ok, Sorry it took so long. I never really knew how to read my comments, so heres what you do.

    -You can find the foam board a a store called "Dollar Tree". Some people have them, but others have never heard of it.

    Oh, and thanks for the comment

    I like it! Definitely a better camera angle, and so much easier to follow.

    Another tip, try for better lighting conditions, I know it's not easy to get right, but if you've got a few desk lamps at your house tape some paper (greasepaper works better) infront of the bulbs and put one on both sides of your work area, your video quality shouldimprove almost instantly!

    Sub'd, I'm looking forward to more of your stuff, keep posting!
