Party with the Minions: Great DIY Ideas

Despicable Me has been a go-to birthday theme for years now, but we have a feeling that it’ll become even MORE popular thanks to those adorable and lovable Minions and their starring role in their very own feature film. In honor of your pint-sized Minions fans, host an awesome DIY Minions-themed party with cupcakes, games, favors and more. We scoured the Web and found some of the cutest and coolest Minion crafts to include in your own soiree.

Minion Cupcakes

These Minion cupcakes may look like something you’d buy from a high-end bakery, but Eats Amazing has a surprisingly simple tutorial on how to make them at home using a basic cupcakes base, fondants and flourishes made using an edible marker. Creating a variety of different Minion faces makes the display even more adorable.

Let all your guests become Minions for the day, which will be easy once they don these adorable homemade hats. Tidbits and Twine created these using inexpensive yellow plastic construction hats, black ribbon, black pipe cleaners, Mason jar rings and an eyeball printout. You can get the instructions (and the eyeball) from Tidbits and Twine here.

It doesn’t need to be Easter for your kids to enjoy an egg hunt! Create an any-time-of-year Minions egg hunt by combining blue plastic egg bottoms with yellow plastic egg tops. Glue on an eye or two, get out the Sharpie and you’ve got yourself an army of Minions to fill with trinkets and treats.
