Throw in some Hollywood branding and a dash of illegality, and life is perfect.
I was astounded to find that, in a country where only freaks and weirdos don't carry handguns, the sale of lawn darts has been banned on health and safety grounds.
Naturally, I had to make a set.
Even more naturally, as soon I saw the shape, I knew they had to be styled after the Minions from Despicable Me!
Step 1: Materials and tools.
To make the basic darts, all you need are two-litre soda bottles, six-inch nails and some sort of space-filling glue (I used hot glue, but a two-part epoxy would do just as well).
All you need tool-wise is a sharp knife.
To Minionise your darts, you will need blue and yellow paint (I used Brand X auto paint), a black marker, and a print-out of a pair of Minion goggles. To protect the print-out, I also used a spray-on clear lacquer.
