Minion pebbles!

I saw the idea of doing Minion pebbles from a post from The Madhouse and just had to give it a go!

Riley loves minions so he was so excited to do it! We have a few pebbles in the garden so didn't need to hunt far!

As you will see from the pictures, we had a great fun filled afternoon.....


All we used was...
 
  • some big pebbles
  • yellow paint
  • blue paint
  • white paint (we used tipex!)
  • a black marker pen
 
First we painted the pebbles 2/3 yellow and 1/3 blue



 
We left them to dry and did a couple more coats of the yellow and blue


We draw the faces on using the marker pen and the white for the eyes
 



Next on the agenda is a hunt for more pebbles so we can do some purple minions!

  6. They look really effective don't they. Monkey's best friend loves the Minions too - Monkey has no idea who/what they are! Films are not his thing - lol
