Fun Minion Christmas decorations
Despicable Me 3 is such a fun animated comedy, and we decided that we would do a fun holiday-themed craft to celebrate its home release!

With a few materials you probably already have at home, you can learn how to make these DIY Minion Christmas ornaments for the holidays for all of your Minion-loving family and friends!
Make Your Own DIY Minion Christmas Ornaments!
Materials needed to make your own Minion:
- clear plastic ornaments
- yellow paint
- black ribbon
- printable Minion faces PDF (thanks to the original source)
Step 1: Add yellow paint to your ornaments
To get started with your Minions Christmas ornament, grab the yellow paint and squeeze in a generous amount inside. Swirl the ornaments around until all inside surfaces are coated yellow. Do this a few times to better coat the inside so the paint sticks. Turn them upside down and allow them to drip dry into a bowl or cup.
Step 2: Measure and attach black ribbon hanger
Measure the desired length of ribbon to go all the way around the middle of the ornament and glue. This will serve as the temple of the goggles, or the part that would sit over the ears. Over measure a little bit and glue right across the middle and around the back of the ornament on each side.
Step 3: Cut out and attach the Minion eyes
Print out the Christmas Minion faces and cut out the goggle eyes you wish to use. Glue these right over the middle of the black ribbon.
Step 4: Add ribbon for hanging and put the pieces together
Attach a piece of black ribbon to the top of the ornament at the desired length. You can glue this on, or tie the ribbon in a loop and thread it through the ring. Once the glue on your ornaments is completely dry, hang on the Christmas tree and admire!
