Our family is big fans of Despicable Me 3. We love all the character, Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions and how they provide hours of family fun in this heartwarming comedy. In our partnership with this #1 animated comedy of the year, we decided to make a Minion Puff Ornament that is really quick and easy to make and poses as a lovely addition to your Christmas Tree.
My daughter and I were talking about some of her favorite crafts and one of them is making puffs, or rather fluffy yarn balls. Zoe learned how to make these at an event we went to and she decided to turn one into a Minion for me. So to make these Minion Puff Ornaments you need some yellow and black yarn.
A Minion Puff Ornament Craft
Take the yarn and wrap it around something, usually you can just wrap it around your fingers but Zoe got a piece of cardboard and wrapped the yellow yarn around the piece of cardboard.
Then you have to tie a not around the middle.
Then you cut the wrapped yarn at each end and remove the board. Zoe then wrapped a piece of black yarn around the puff and glued on an eye or two.
She also decided to make overalls for one of the Minions. I think he turned out quite cute.
Now you can bring home all the fun of Despicable Me 3 home this holiday season.
About Despicable Me 3
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.
