Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Did you know that the Despicable Me 3 Special Edition is available on Blu-ray & DVD December 5! I cannot tell you how excited my kids are about this. We went to the movies when it first came out. My boys have been obsessed with the Minions since they first arrived on the scene several years ago. I’ve even done a couple Minion crafts on the blog.
So I was really excited to get the opportunity to team up with Universal Pictures again to create a fun Christmas inspired Minion DIY Gift Wrap for the Release of the Blu-ray & DVD.
With this craft I thought it would be a fun gift exchange/craft project. With all the holiday parties coming up for the kids, I wanted to create a fun craft they can work on for their friends and really make it special.
Let’s craft crafting!
Minion DIY Gift Wrap
Step 1 – Goggles and Eyes
First we made our goggles which is a pretty simple process. I found some FUN glittery foam sheets in the craft section. While I was getting black ribbon for the goggles, I came across some Christmas ribbon. I knew that would be a perfect Christmas touch to their goggles.
Measure out your ribbon and glue it down.
For the eyes I found some large googly eyes. I just made my circles from the glittery foam a little larger then the googly eyes.
Glue down!! That’s it for the googles!
Step 2 – Mouth
Trace out your mouth shape with a pencil on the foam. I just went online to find a couple different shapes that I liked. Cut out your mouth a glue it down.
Another option you can do for the mouth is black cardstock or black marker.
Step 3 – Santa’s Hat!
Now let’s get these Minion in the Christmas spirit!!
I made a simple Santa hat shape with glittery cardstock. Just a triangle with the red and for the “faux” fur some glittery white.
Top off with a little pom pom ball and glue everything together!
See all done!! These are going to be great to give to the kids friends. I’m SO EXCITED to see how these turned out!!
I think my kids are going to have a few gifts wrapped under our tree like this as well! I know we’re all looking forward to a fun family movie night. We’re gonna have to bring out our Minions pajamas again for sure!
Make sure to head over to Target and get the exclusive Blu-ray or DVD, not only does it feature an all-new mini-movie, but so much more including 20 mins of additional content, collectible cards featuring your favorite Despicable Me characters, and fun Minion temporary tattoos!
It’s the #1 animated comedy of the year, Despicable Me 3 is the ultimate holiday gift with an All-New Mini Movie, Minion Moments and more! As you can see we LOVE Minions!! This was Christmas morning two years ago!
Illumination, the studio that brought you Sing, The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, continues the adventures of Gru and his family in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt, the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.
