1.Recycle paper tube to make easy minions glasses


Recycle some toilet paper tube to make this simple minions goggles. Cut off one or two section of paper tube, depending on how many eyes your minion will have.
Then paint your tubes with your silver paint and let it dry completely. Once your paper tubes are dry, staple them together in the center of the tubes, side by side.
Finally attach the elastic by stapling to both sides of the tube or tubes.
You can also recycle scotch tape paper tube or any other bigger radius paper tube for this purpose. Just cut out two cylinders, paint them in grey or silver, fold it with duct tape or metal folio.
