Glass Minion Centerpieces

How to Make:

1. Decide on the jars.

I used the clear glass vases which I already had and used for the White Flower Bouquet DIY Centerpieces {with printable tags} that I used for a previous church event to decorate the gym.  I loved that my collection has many variety of sizes and shapes just like the Minions from Despicable Me movie.

2.  Print the eyes and mouth.

Print and cut out eyes and mouths for each Minion jar centerpieces.  I ordered the Minion Faces printable from Laura’s Party Shop on Etsy.  Currently her shop is closed. For an alternative you can use the Minion Eyeball  free printable.

3.  Add helium balloon with weight. {optional}

Since I was transporting a lot of glass and tons of helium balloons to a church building, I chose to tape the helium balloons to the bottom of each Blue and Gold centerpiece Minion.  It worked out just fine.  However, if you want a cleaner look you can tie the helium balloons to a weight and add them inside the jar before you add the blue and yellow embellishment.

4.  Stuff Jars with paper.

Stuff the jars first with blue crinkle paper shreds, blue tissue paper, or even candy to create the blue overalls.  Then on top add something yellow like yellow crinkle paper shreds.  I got my paper shreds at Hobby Lobby but I think Party City and Walmart both carry it as well.

Since the bottom of each Minion is blue, I chose to layer the table with a blue table cloth with a yellow paper place mat.  It helped to make the centerpieces POP in such a big room as a church gym.

Tip:  If your jars are an odd shape and don’t have a bottom you can add a piece of blue construction paper to the bottom as the overalls.
