So, I thought and thought and said to myself "Hey I can make an Oven and then it will be Bun in the Oven!" And thus this costume and instructable came about.
6 pieces of foam board
Hot glue / Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Cut the Foam Board
After making the four bottom foam board pieces and marking which is which (I marked both which side is up with an arrow and Left, Right, Front, Back) they "snapped" together. I just made sure I was able to fit inside with room to grow (I started this in the beginning of September and Halloween is in the end of October so in case the belly grows I want there to be some room)
Step 2: Make the Stove Top
Step 3: Make the Oven Front
Step 4: Make the Stove Top Details
- First, there are the stove top grates. To make these:
- In the back yard there was one of those small metal garden gates that was falling apart. We snipped off long pieces of the gate.
- I rolled the strips of the metal garden gate into spirals.First
- First I tried painting the spirals, this did not work too well.
- I dipped the spirals into paint and let them dry. This worked much better. (Very messy step make sure to use paint that is able to be washed off with water)
Then there are the buttons. To make these:
- I cut small pieces of foam into squares approximately 1 inch by 1 inch
- I used a black sharpie marker to make them black so they stick out on the white stove top.
I used a Green Gel pen to mark the labels
And the knobs. To make these:
- I found four black buttons again about 1inch in diameter.
- Then I cut four pieces of foam board to look like the knob handle.
- I used the black sharpie to make the handles black.
I hot glued the two pieces together.
And the clock. To make these:
- I picked numbers that had straight edges since I would be cutting with an exacto knife.
- I drew the numbers in block letters.
- Cut the numbers out with the exacto knife
Last, I used a marker to make them green.
Put the back panel together. To do this:
- I cut a piece of foam board so that the buttons and clock would fit.
- I placed the pieces so the clock was in the middle and the buttons were on each side.
Then I glued the pieces onto the board.
Put the knobs on. To do this:
- I made a small hole with a pen to fit a brad in.
- I glued the knobs onto a brad with hot glue.
- I put the piece through the holes and closed the brad so that it would spin.
