ROBOT COSTUME

DIY robot fancy dress costume made from cardboard boxes

We recently made this recycled robot fancy dress costume using the cardboard box from our WHO GIVES A CRAP toilet paper. If you're not familiar with Who Gives A Crap, they make fantastic tree friendly recycled toilet paper with no plastic packaging and their boxes are prefect for building stuff!

We love making our own recycled dress up costumes but if you're not feeling crafty then check out our range of MINI MAD THINGS ethically manufactured children's fancy dress costumes and accessories, we've got dinosaurs, robots, pirates, butterflies and lots more, perfect for your little ones wild imagination.

MATERIALS:

  • Two cardboard boxes; one body size and one head size
  • Hot glue
  • Craft knife
  • Scissors
  • Items to decorate the robot like shiny foil, bottle tops, lids, paints, cardboard tubes etc.

HOW TO:

I'm afraid we were having so much fun building our robot that I forgot to take photos of the process! It's pretty simple; cut a head hole and arm holes in the body size box so it can go on over the head. Cut an eye hole in head size box and then have fun decorating the robot adding lots of buttons and other features.
