This adorable Wall-E was made by me using materials found around my home!
I decided to make it one lazy morning using things that were going into the trash like old boxes, parts of plastic bottles, old film and scraps of cardboard.
Step 1: Materials
This is a list of the materials I used:
- Thin metal sheet (it was easily cuttable with scissors)
- Scrap cardboard boxes
- Hot glue and glue gun
- The back plate of an old motherboard
- plastic bottles and bottle caps
- old film reel
- packaging foam
Step 2: Assembling the Parts
- Neck of 2 plastic bottles is cut, and glued to the bottle caps, this makes the eyes;
- eyes are glued on the head, made of cardboard. A thin strip of cardboard adds some more detail to the head.
- Neck is the plastic case of pencil leads, cut into 2 pieces
- body is a square box, with colour matching the Wall-E colours;
- the front plate of a PC motherboard adds some detail to the front
- hand is very thin metal sheet, cuttable with scissors; this is glued to a cardboard tube.
- The cardboard tube is inserted into a slightly bigger cardboard tube, so hand can move, and rotate;
- the upper part of the arm is made from another cardboard box, with colour matching the Wall-E colours
- Arm are the hot-glued to the body
- Recovered old film reel was the perfect material for recreating the look of tank treads; they are supported by cardboard and slices of packing foam cylinder.
