Introduction: DIY Minion Goggles
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!
Step 1: Gathering Stuff Needed
-silver spray paint
-some round thing to trace on the wood. like a cup, can, or you could just free-hand it if you need to
-plastic box to cut circles out of
-wood (about a 1/2 inch thick).
-eight screws that you can cut the tops off of
-a cheap belt or elastic
-band saw (or something to cut the wood with).
-things to cut the box with
-hot glue gun
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.
Step 6: More Cutting Gluing and Painting
Cut angles on the sides of the circles that would fit on your face.
Glue the circles together.
Put painters tape on plastic that faces out, not the plastic that faces in towards your face.
Spray paint the front. Not the back, you should not have that paint touching you.
Step 7: Attach Belt or Elastic
Measure the belt or elastic around your head (make sure it is stretched a little so it stays on).
Attach the belt or elastic to the goggles with the stapler.
Cut to length.
Step 8: Take the Tape Off/Put Some on It/You Could Just Be Done Now
Put some duct tape on where your nose touches.
If you want to stop now all you need to do is take the painters tape off and you're done!
Step 9: Attach Screw Heads
Cut the screw heads off.
Screw four small holes in each circle.
Hot glue the heads in the holes.
Step 10: Done!
Hope you enjoyed!
