2 x soup cans (for the legs)
1 x 4 litre paint can (for the body). I bought mine for $8 at the paint shop as I didn’t want a dirty used paint tin around kids or food
1 x baby formula can (for the head)
1 x long alfoil roll (cut in half – for the arms)
2 x Nuts (found at any hardware store)
1 x socket from an old socket set (for the nose) – you could use whatever your husband will give you from his tool kit though ; )
1 x silver pipe cleaner (cut in half)
Silver spray paint
1 x print out for the mouth (added below)
Your first step will be to spray paint all of the ‘body parts’ with silver and leave them to dry.
I used blue electrical tape and added it to the base of the two soup cans (for the legs and then did the same for the ‘arms’).
Then you will need to attach the two ‘legs’ to the ‘body’ using the glue gun (you will note that I did this before I put on the electrical tape….trust me, you will want to do the tape first lol!…you live and you learn ; )
Now glue on the ‘head’ using the glue gun.
Attach the arms, again, with the glue gun. You will note that the right arm is facing outwards so I could hang the very cute little sign (courtesy of Piggy Bank Parties).
Now you can start adding character to your little guy by glueing on his eyes, mouth, nose and ears! To make the ears/antennas, I cut a long piece of silver pipe cleaner in half, then coiled each piece around my finger to get the ‘springy’ look.
Now add your cutlery (which looks like the Robot’s hair) and you have the perfect party feature!
