This Instuctable will show you how to make cheap easy Despicable Me minion goggles.

The reason I made these was for minion Monday, one of our school spirit  days this week. The thing is I was about one of three people that actually dressed up that day...

Anyway, hope you like it!

-eight screws that you can cut the tops off of
-a cheap belt or elastic

Step 2: Make The Wood Circles

Draw out the circles on the wood. I traced it with the blue cup in the picture and wrote my measurements in the picture so you could just copy that (ignore the outer circle).

Now cut them with the band saw (WARNING you may not want to use this though, because it is hard to control a band saw).

Cut the inside circle by cutting the first circle in half. You will end up with to half circles. -Do this four times.


Step 3: Cut The Plastic Circles

You can probably tell that I am not meant for cutting circles out of plastic... But I did get two pretty good circles out of this though.

First you need to trace them with the same thing you used to trace the wood with.

Then cut them with whatever you can use.

CAREFUL! I was very lucky and only got a small cut on my hand when doing this.

If the circles are a bit to big or oddly shaped it is okay you will sand it later.

Step 4: Glue It All Together

Find the parts that fit together the best.
Glue all of these together. 


Step 5: Sand Them

Sand the inside and out, to to make the goggles look much more smooth.
When doing the inside be careful, because it could scratch the plastic. 
BANANA?! :)
