Step-by-Step Instructions

Step by Step Instruction to create DIY Minion Costume

Step 1: Prepare the Minion’s Clothing

First, put on the yellow T-shirt or dress and the denim overalls. Adjust the overall straps to fit correctly. If you’re using white clothing, make sure to dye them yellow according to the instructions on the fabric dye.

Step 2: Make the Minion’s Goggles

Option A: Using Black Ribbon

  1. Take the black ribbon and measure it around the wearer’s head to determine the correct length.
  2. Carefully glue each end of the ribbon to the sides of the thick black headband.
  3. Once the glue dries, the goggles will be ready to wear.

Option B: Using Fabric Paint

  1. Use fabric paint to draw the goggle shape around the eyes on the headband. Make sure to leave enough space for the eyes to be glued later.
  2. Fill in the goggle shapes with black fabric paint.
  3. Let the paint dry completely before proceeding.

Step 3: Add the Minion’s Eyes

Using the hot glue gun, attach the large googly eyes to the center of the goggles. The eyes should sit right above the painted goggle shapes if you opted for fabric paint.

Step 4: Create the Minion’s Hair

  1. Take a few yellow and black pipe cleaners and twist them together to form a striped pattern.
  2. Attach the twisted pipe cleaners to the top of the headband, creating the Minion’s spiky hair.

If you want to add the “Gru” logo to the denim overalls, cut it out from a piece of fabric or use a printable logo. Attach it to the front pocket of the overalls using fabric glue or by sewing it on.

Step 6: Final Touches

Inspect the costume and make any necessary adjustments. Trim any excess threads or materials. Ensure all elements are securely attached.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully created your Minion costumes. These adorable costumes are perfect for Halloween, themed parties, or just for playtime fun. Get ready to spread happiness and laughter wherever you go as you and your friends or family rock these DIY Minion outfits!
