In the movie Despicable Me, the Minions make Agnes a unicorn toy that they call "Papoy". Agnes is happy to have her unicorn, even if it isn't fluffy. What minion costume would be complete without a home made Papoy?

Step 1: Gather the materials

After studying screen shots and video of the movie scene I had a good idea of the parts I would need. The unicorn appears to be made from a toilet brush and ping pong ball with an ice cream cone for a horn. The hardest part to find by far was a generic looking white toilet brush with BLUE bristles. I'm fairly certain no one actually makes one. I finally found a plain looking white one at Target that was a good size and shape.

Everything else I found at my local craft store. Here is the list.

- Burlap paper (thin sheet of actual burlap glued to paper)

- Styrofoam Cone from the floral section

- Ping Pong Balls!

- Googly Eyes (large)

- Elastic

- Transparent floral card holder

- Optionally, you will need Blue/Purple dye or paint to color the toilet brush

I spent maybe $7 on the toilet brush and another $20 buying the remaining supplies.

You will also need the following tools.

- Hot Glue Gun

- Scissors

- Black marker (sharpie)

<p>this is nice but it is kind of hard to make. Overall, it is good to make when you have time. If you do it looks exactly like the one in the movie.</p>
Thanks for the nice comments!
<p>This is so cute, and it does look pretty darn close to the one in Despicable Me. Very nicely done!</p>
