DIY: Minion Clothespins

My son turns one on October 11, so I'm getting into party planning mode.
He LOVES anything to do with minions. It doesn't help that throughout my entire pregnancy he heard the "Despicable Me" movie being played thanks to his brother and sisters.
That being said, here's a simple but very cute way to display pictures, signs, cards, etc.
(I will be using these to display his monthly pictures we've taken since he was born)
 
 
You will need:
*Clothespins
*Yellow Paint
*Blue Paint
*Paintbrush of some sort
*Black marker
*Googly Eyes
*Glue (I used regular Elmer's)
 
I found all the above at Michael's craft store, WalMart carries it as well.
 
 
 
I found it was VERY convenient to have them clamped around a plate as shown above.
 
 
 
 
Step 1:
Paint the area ABOVE the metal clasp yellow
 
Step 2:
Paint the remaining area blue
 
Step 3:
Glue on either one or two googly eyes and draw a mouth, VOILA!
