If you want to create a diy minion costume, here are some amazing ideas for you to start creating.  

Minions are taking over the world. 

"" I started with overalls and drew the "Gru" logo on them. Next, I took a yellow hoodie and hot glued black pipecleaners to the hoods for their "hair". For those that aren't familiar with the movie, Minions don't all have the same hair styles so I had my boys each choose which hair-do they wanted. I found their "goggles" at the dollar store and removed the nose, mustache, and eyebrows, then hot glued black Velcro to the sides so they would stay on their heads. The look was finished by using yellow make-up, black gloves and black shoes. The base of the hoodie was taped together.""

" All you need is cardboard, loads and loads of it. Make a cylinder out of the cardboard in which your kid and easily and comfortably fit in. Make a two giant holes for eyes, make a pair of minion spectacles and fit in your child. Of course, paint it appropriately to look like a minion. And that’s it."

Milo Upcycled Table.

420,000 tonnes of waste wood is produced by households each year. Wood that could be ground up, made into chipboard and used to make other items.

Wood for the Milo table comes off cuts from the wood he uses to make his fitted furniture as well as waste that comes from old cupboards he has taken out of customers houses that are no longer needed. I think if he had a magic wand, Tristan’s wish would be to encourage and inspire people to use more natural materials in their homes and for the industry to produce them.
‘Milo’ is a contemporary ‘eco’ coffee or bedside table, oiled with natural eco oil. As you’ll see from the photo, the shapes, colours, patterns and textures are a sight to behold. Each table is unique, using whatever materials are to hand.
