I was playing around with my diy vacuum forming machine, and i vacuum formed a minion. I decided to paint it and the put a light inside to create a minion lamp.

Step 1: Gather Materials

  • diy vacuum former
  • object you want to vacuum form (i used a minion)
  • led finger-light
  • paint
  • scissors
  • glue

Step 2: Forming

vacuum form the front and back

Step 3: Paint

Paint according to your taste

Step 4: Install Light

  1. i put a piece of hot glue stick on top of the led so it would diffuse the light better
  2. then mount it inside (as shown)
  3. close the minion and hot glue it

Step 5: Enjoy!

use as a night light, hang it on your wall or just as a fun flashlight

<p>cool, the process used for making the minion seems a bit familair :)</p>
