Now you can throw your own Minion-themed party with these 12 must-have DIY projects.


1. Candy Minion Spoons: Create a fun display by sticking these spoons in a styrofoam brick covered in pretty wrapping paper, and then cover each spoon with a piece of cellophane and tie with a ribbon for a cute party favor. (via Living Locurto)


2. Fondant Cupcakes: Don’t let the word fondant scare you away. Since there are no complicated lines or shapes, these cupcakes are a cinch to put together. (via Eats Amazing)


3. Baby Food Jar Favors: Repurpose all those empty baby food jars into a colorful table decoration. Just give each jar two coats of yellow spray paint, wait for it to dry and glue on the eye(s). (via Betty Crocker)
