How to make a LMFAO robot head>

Step 1: Materials and Tool

1 about 17 1/2 x 12 inch box
1 can of gold spray paint
1 cheap black running jacket
plastic wrap
black see through fabric
binder clips
hot glue gun
scissors or exacto knife

Step 2: Cutting the Box

Cut the bottom of the box (laying vertical) about 3 inches off the whole bottom leaving you with the an empty bottom. Tape the box lid and the box together so they stay together.

Step 3:

To make it so that your head doesn't move around the box i used the leftover end i had cut off and taped down to surround my head so that it fit snug. If you want you can stuff paper inside to add some cushion.

Step 4: Painting and Cutting Out

cut a circle and a cylinder and hot glue the knob on. Now you are going to spray paint your box gold(NOTE: DO NOT CUT ANYTHING OUT UNTIL YOU HAVE FINISHED PAINTING).To cut out the eyes i used a wide soup can about 3 1/2" in diameter. Cut mouth so that you can see through it.

Step 5: Eyes and Mouth Covering

Cover the eye holes with plastic wrap and tape it down then color it red where the eye holes are. I got two wristbands that had four lights in each that blink and i took them out and glue them to a piece of cardboard. Then cover the mouth hole with the black see through fabric and tape it down so that there are no folds.

Step 6: Gold Jacket

Spray paint the running jacket gold but not a solid color, leaving some areas of random black

Step 7: FINISHED!!!!!!!!
