My family is so happy that our favorite Despicable Me characters are back and better than ever. The characters beloved by everyone – Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions provide hours of family fun in this heartwarming comedy.
Despicable Me 3 Special Edition is now available on Blu-ray & DVD. BONUS: the Target exclusive not only features an all-new mini-movie, but so much more including 20 minutes of additional content, collectible cards featuring your favorite Despicable Me characters and fun Minion temporary tattoos!

With Despicable Me 3 coming to DVD today, it was only fitting to make sure that family and fun were the center of this festive kids craft. Check out how easy it is to get into the holiday spirit with this Festive DIY Minions Garland and Christmas Card Display Idea.
What You Will Need:

- 3/8″ Black Ribbon
- Googly Eyes
- Silver Glitter Glue Pen
- Baker’s Twine
- Christmas cards
- Cut red, blue, green, and yellow felt into Christmas light shapes, at least 2 1/2 inches long. Cut white felt into small equal rectangles, to be toppers for your lights.
- Now cut black ribbon to wrap and cover your yellow lights. Glue to the top 3rd (the larger portion) of the yellow felt pieces. Glue eyes on top of the black ribbon.
- Using silver glue pen, outline the circle of the eyes. Allow to dry.
- Glue lights and light toppers to your clothespins: toppers on top of the open end and the pointy end of the lights at the closed end of the clothespins. <
- Thread and tie bakers twine through the clothespins at equal lengths between lights.
- Hang as is or clip Christmas cards received throughout the season to display in a festive (NON) Despicable way!
