'Stretch your holiday budget with perky handmade toys'!
The can sizes could really be improvised to what is available as well as his decorative details. Original instructions are as follows:
Spaceman has four frozen juice cans for legs and arms, a large juice can for body, 1 pound coffee can for head. Spray with gold paint. Assemble with gold cord threaded through holes punched in cans. Features are colored gift tape. Antenna on head is a pipe cleaner. Hands and feet are fashioned from construction paper.
I personally hate just about anything gold colored and love silver so I would just ditch the whole gold spray paint suggestion and leave the cans as is! This would be a fun project for parents and children to do together and would be really cute as a decoration in a space themed room or a party.
