Turn up the Cute Factor in Your Kid's Room with These Fun Minion DIY Projects ...


Minions (of Despicable Me fame) are all the rage right now.

They happen to be offered together with a popular fast food kiddie set but we don't recommend buying when the DIY route is much more fun.

Check out the Minion craft projects below and happy making!

1. Pin Cushion or Softie

Pin Cushion or Softie

How cute is this DIY Minion softie?

This is made of felt and fiberfill.

Googly eyes were also used but if you don't have any, it would be easy to construct a pair using white and black felt.

For those who are beginners at making softies or have always wanted to make a unique-looking pin cushion, this fun Minion pattern is perfect for you.2

2. Slime


Oh, your kids would love this.

While the previous toy Minion is all sorts of cute, some kids may prefer the tactile fun that this Minion slime offers.2

You can make the slime using Elmer's glue, Borax, yellow food coloring, and water.

The tutorial below also offers you fantastic steps for making the Minions jar.

3. Goodie Jar

Goodie Jar

Here we have another Minion idea using jars.

Unlike the previous craft tutorial, though, you will not necessarily be filling these cute jars with slime.

They have many uses, as a matter of fact.

They're great for storing odds and ends in your kid's homework area.2

You can also use them as goodie containers in a Minion-themed party.

This project calls for satin paint in yellow and enamel glass writers for making the face details.

4. Bucket


Going to the beach anytime soon?

Whip up this super adorable Minion bucket for your little sandcastle architect.

You can get yellow bucket for less than a dollar each.

To make the face details, you will be needing duct tape in black, gray, white, and pink.

Aside from being a great beach buddy, these buckets will also be perfect for party giveaways or for going trick or treating come Halloween.

If you transform a large bucket, you can use it for organizing toys in your kid's room.
