This FREE PRINTABLE Minion Mason Jars post is in partnership with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
Merry Christmas season to you. I am knee deep in Christmas-hunting-for-the-right-gift season.
We always get the kids one movie a year in their stockings or under the tree. And the best-animated movie of all time (if you ask my hubs), “Despicable Me” is back with it’s latest sequel featuring the quirky, but lovable Gru, the Minions and his adorable kids Margo, Edith and Agnes.
Despicable Me 3 just came out on DVD and Blu-Ray and if you buy the Wal-Mart exclusive it also comes with a super soft, plush Minion backpack.
So here is a super quick and easy way to package the Minion movie and backpack with every kid’s favorite thing – candy in a Mason Jar!

- White Cardstock
- Glue Dots
- Black Ribbon
- Pint Mason Jar
- Candy of your choice
How to Make the Minion Mason Jars
1. The Minion Eyes
Print out the FREE Minion eyes on white cardstock paper.
Use the mason jar lid to trace and cut out the eyes.
2. The Ribbon
Wrap ribbon around the length of the jar and use glue dots to secure.
3. Secure the Eye
Pop the Minion eye in the top with the lid underneath to secure.
4. Fill it Up
Fill with the candy of your choice.
Ideas: Butterfinger, yellow or blue gumballs, Lemon-heads, Double Bubble bubble gum.
Or if you go to a specialty candy store you might even be able to find just yellow and blue M&M’s, Jelly Bellys or Starburst.
5. Make a basket
Arrange it in a little basket with tissue paper.
Even my middle schooler would love to get this gift. His love languages are candy and movies!
Check out the trailer for Despicable Me 3, which continues the adventures of Gru and his family.
After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt, the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.
