I told you I had one more Minion post coming and here it is. I promise I will move on and away from Minions now! At least in this post I am including a few other favorite characters as well. I’ve got a simple tutorial for you to create a Christmas tree ornament of any of your favorite characters. Here’s minion Christmas ornaments as well as Elmo and Mike Wazowski:
But you can make them with anybody! Whoever your kids like-make them an ornament! It’s really very easy!
Minion Christmas Ornaments & More:
- Clear Glass Bulb Ornaments (you can buy a 12 pack or so at your craft store)
- Americana Multi Surface Satin in desired colors
- Vinyl (optional)
- Ribbon to hang ornaments
Take the top part off of the ornament and pour a bunch of paint inside. Be generous-it will be easier:
Now place your thumb over the top hole and shake to spread the paint. Add more as needed.
When it is completely coated, turn it upside down and let it dry in a paper cup or in the box that it came in, making sure the excess paint can drip out as it dries. Let it dry for a long time-maybe even overnight.
Then add the face! You can do this buy cutting out adhesive vinyl or with paint. I did a combination of the two.
The minion is entirely from vinyl:
Elmo is vinyl eyes and mouth with a painted nose:
Really, just do whatever works best for you. The Americana Multi Surface Satin will stick well.
Which character will you make?
