How to Make Minions Paper Lanterns at Home

Minion Lanterns were Super Easy to Make with Yellow Paper Lanterns. They looked Fabulous at Donte’s Minions Themed Birthday Party. I have created a Quick Tutorial below of how to make them at Home in a couple of Easy Steps. Includes FREE Printable Minions Eyes.

What You’ll Need:

  • Yellow Paper Lanterns
  • Super Glue
  • Wide Black Satin Ribbon (about 2 inches wide)
  • Minion Eyes Template
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Thin Paint Brush

Step 1:

Assemble the Yellow Paper Lantern as instructed on the Lantern packet. Usually this is done by inserting the Wire into it’s Centre.

Step 2:

Measure the Width of the paper Lantern.

Step 3:

Cut the Satin Ribbon a little bit longer than the Width of the Lantern.

Step 4:

Using Super Glue attach the Satin Ribbon to the Paper Lantern.

Step 5:

While the Glue is Drying Print out the Minion Eyes Template.

Step 6:

Cut out the Minions Eyes from the Template.

Step 7:

By now the Satin Ribbon should have dried and you can glue the Minion Eyes onto the Satin Ribbon.

Step 8:

Using Black Acrylic Paint give your Minion a Smile and some Hair and leave it to dry.

Now your Minion Lantern is complete and can be hung at your Party or even to Decorate a Minion Fan’s Bedroom!
