Free Life Sized Minecraft Diamond Pickaxe Cut Out Papercraft Template

Being a big Minecraft fan myself I really wanted  my own life sized diamond pickaxe, and I'm sure I'm not the only one!
You could buy a foam life sized pickaxe over at Jinx, but if you haven't got $32 spare then a free papercraft pickaxe printable template is the next best thing.
Why spend out and wait for it to be delivered when you can create your own life sized Minecraft diamond pickaxe using papercraft and have it the same day.

The Minecraft life sized pickaxe template had to be spread over four sheets of A4, 297x210mm/ 11.7x8.3" printing paper because the template cut out just would not fit on 1 sheet of standard printing card.

What to do...

Click template image to bring up new window then Right click and save all templates.  Print out all four life sized diamond pickaxe papercraft templates.  Its a good idea to use card when printing, I used A4 160 gsm card for the wood stick to give it a matt finish and inkjet photo paper for the diamond pick head for a glossy finish.

Carefully cut around the life sized pickaxe.  TAKE YOUR TIME and  DO NOT cut off the tabs on the sides of the Minecraft pickaxe, they are important!

Fold all corners of your papercraft pickaxe cut-out template.  Tabs should always be folded inwards.
Glue or tape your Minecraft life sized pickaxe together using the tabs!

To finish glue the Minecraft stick and diamond head together.  The stick template can be used for other life sized Minecraft template projects which will follow shortly.  More FPSXGames papercraft

Special thanks to my wife for cutting, folding, gluing and hand modelling.

Enjoy and have fun.

  8. I recently made 5 of these for my brother and his friends. They love them soo much... And so do I. Thank you so much for the BEST TUTORIAL EVER! I bought a foam pickaxe off Amazon for my brother and was wondering if I could use this template to make it look diamond. Thanks for the help and the awesome tutorial.

    1. Thanks for the great feedback and glad you liked it. If the foam head and template head are same size then should be no problem.
      Thanks again

    4. The stick has 5 parts, top, bottom, two sides and a end. Hard to explain with text. The parts with the coloured tabs are the side parts that should be folded. Sorry but I'll will have to do a YouTube video for this tutorial.

  11. Each image file size on the attached templates are only 3.931 X 5.556 inches at 72 pixels/inch. I wanted to have 20 of these printed at my local Office Depot for my son's party this next weekend. But it says the files should be 300 dpi & these are only 72! Do I just use these small files and have them made larger into the 11.7X8.3??

    Please help! I'm running low on time & reaaaally want to do this for the boys!

    1. Ah think I know whats happened. Be sure to click image to bring it up full size in new window, then right click and save as.

      This is a good point as I just tested it myself and got same results as you by just saving as. Let me know if it works.

  13. how about the size?can use A4 or A3 size?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The templates are designed to fit standard A4 printing paper but should still work with A3 printer. Awesome, if you manage to build an epic large A3 version please post on the Internet so I can see it 😊 Maybe on the FPSXGames forums.
