DIY Minion Christmas Ornament
What you need
- string or ribbon
- yellow, blue craft foam
- large googly eye
- black ribbon or craft foam
- hot glue, glue gun
- Begin by cutting out the body of your Minion using the yellow foam. You can do this by cutting out a pill shape and then cutting the bottom half off.
- Cut out the pants of the Minion. Use the blue craft foam and cut out a rectangle that runs the width of the body. Then, cut small squares out of the side as shown to make the piece look like pants.
- Glue your pants to the body of the Minion.
- Now add the strip of black ribbon or felt/foam across the top half of the body to look like eye glasses. Glue a large googly eye over the ribbon. Hold in place until dry.
- Finally, add the ribbon or twine for hanging. Tie a piece into a loop, add some glue, and press to the back of the body.
