The Minions Are Taking Over!


My grandson loves the Minions and I wanted to do something special for his room. I painted his dresser blue and the drawers yellow. But what to do about the handles? To the dollar store!! I bought silver 6 flashlights (one for each handle) and took them apart.

Next I drilled 2 holes, one on each side of the top.

Next I cut 6 pieces of black strapping. I folded each one and sewed the ends together to form a circle with the seam hidden in the back.

Next I cut 6 circles the size of the flashlight top out of yellow foam I had laying around. Then I glued a wiggle eye on each one.

I sewed each one to a strapping. I poked holes and put in screws

Then put them on the drawers. The Minions are watching!!!

    What did you do with the rest of the flashlight? Oh by the way your idea was very creative, thinking outside the box.

    I recently pulled up a few solar lights, the kind from the dollar store, and disassembled them to see how I could recycle them the top has a brushed silver ring that would be perfect for this
