Do you love an easy and inexpensive craft the kids can help you with? I am always on the hunt for a cute project the kids and I can make in a short time. I don’t know about your kids, but mine have an attention span of a gnat! I have to keep them busy and I have about an hour before they lost interest. This adorable Easy Minions Flower Pot Craft fits those needs perfectly!
My kids have loved the Minion gang since the first time they saw them. They could watch the Despicable Me movies over and over! I must admit, I could too! Each time we watch one, we uncover another joke or gag that cracks us up! After we planted our herb garden, we had a few Terracotta pots left over. We decided to make a cute Easy Minions Flower Pot Craft. Isn’t it adorable? And if you need a cute idea for a back to school craft, try this Teacher Appreciation Crayon Vase Craft.

What you will need to make your Easy Minions Flower Pot Craft:
- One medium sized terracotta flower pot and saucer
- 1 mason jar ring
- 1 bottle of Minion yellow paint
- 1 bottle of Minion blue paint
- 1 bottle each of white, black and brown paint. You can also use a black and brown marker.
- 1 medium paintbrush for painting the flower pot and saucer
- 1 small paintbrush for painting the eye
- ¼ “ black grosgrain ribbon
- Tacky glue or a hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step One: Paint your flower pot with the yellow paint. You may need to do 2-3 coats. Allow to dry completely in between coats.
Step Two: Paint your saucer with the blue paint. You may need to do 2-3 coats. Allow to dry completely in between coats.
Step Three: Place your mason jar ring with the top against the flower pot. This is where the eye will be. Use a pencil to mark the circle of the eye, using the ring as a guide. Paint the eye circle white. Do at least 2 coats. Allow to dry completely in between coats. This is super important. If you don’t, the brown and black will run into the white.
Step Four: Using a pencil, make a circle, about the size of a half dollar, in the middle of the white part of the eye. This will be painted brown. You can also use a brown marker instead of paint. Repeat step five, but inside the brown circle. This will be painted black. You can also use a black marker instead of the paint.
Step Five: Glue the black ribbon around the bottom of the top part of the flower pot. The ends will be glued just inside where the mason jar ring will go.
Step Six: Glue the mason jar ring onto the flower pot.
