Despicable Me 3 Christmas Wreath

Those Minions get all the attention, so when Universal Pictures Home Entertainment asked us to create a holiday craft project celebrating the December 5th Blu-ray and DVD release of Despicable Me 3 Special Edition, we had to go with 80’s villain Balthazar Bratt. This DIY Ornament wreath is inspired by one of Balthazar’s favorite weapons, Bubble Gum, and it’s sure to make your front door “POP” (punny, ha) this holiday season.

Gather ye supplies, you will need:

Straw Form Wreath – this one is 18″ (Large)

Tinsel Garland – 2-3 packs – The closest color to your ornaments is ideal.

U Pins – 100 – If you would rather use a hot glue gun, that is a great alternative. It depends on if you would like to remove the ornaments in the future.

Christmas Ornaments – around 100 (a few more to be safe)

10″ Wire, for hanging

Step 4: Fill in the wreath with ornaments.

Tip: plan ahead and divide your ornaments among the 4 quarters of the wreath so that your styles of ornament are evenly dispersed.

Tip: If you have broken ornaments, you can glue them on to fill “holes” at the end. You can also glue on a copy of Despicable Me 3! (just kidding)

Maybe Balthazar Bratt will finally feel like he has the attention he deserves now that we showed you how to make an Ornament Christmas Wreath in his honor?

Despicable Me 3

Illumination, the studio that brought you Sing, The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, continues the adventures of Gru and his family in Despicable Me 3. 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.

Starring Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate and Julie Andrews.
