There is no such thing as a child’s birthday party without CUPCAKES! With the Robot Themed Party my son had decided on, I knew I had to make my own ROBOT Cupcake Stand! Here’s how you can make your own!
You will need:
2 round baking/pizza trays
1 small round cake pan
2 squares of cardboard covered in alfoil
4 tin/soup cans – all the same size
1 small cardboard box (for the head)
1 slinky (I purchased mine at my local $2 shop)
2 large googly eyes
1 pack of LED lights (with batteries) – I purchased my set for $3.99 at my local $2 shop : )
Silver spray paint
1 ‘robot mouth’ (I googled ‘heart monitor images’ to find my image – attached below).
Start by spray painting your cardboard box (for the head) and allow it to dry.
Then move on to covering your two cardboard squares with alfoil (tape down at the bottom).
Then glue on two of the cans for the ‘legs’.
The next step is to glue on one of the pizza trays which will be come the first tier of the cupcake stand – you will need to test out exactly where it will fit to get the correct balance. I marked on the bottom of the tray where I was going to add the glue with a texter.
Next, glue on a third can to the first tier of the stand.
Then add the second pizza tray (using the same method as before).
Your fourth can can then be glued into place. You will then glue on top of this your small round cake pan. Now that you have this section complete, take your (now dried) cardboard box robot head & pierce holes around the perimeter of his ‘face’ for your LED lights to poke through.
Once I had done this, I added a little hot glue to each hole to ensure the lights stayed in place. I then added the battery pack inside of the head, leaving one side of the box open so I could access it to turn the lights on and off as needed.
Then glue on your slinky as pictured.
Glue on your googly eyes and robot mouth (I laminated my mouth but this is not a necessity) and you are done VOILA!
My little man, was so excited when he saw the finished result! It was worth every second (I completely enjoyed making this!). All of his little friends were gathered around looking at Robot Cupcake Stand. It looked pretty cool at night too : )
