Scrap Crafty~'Spook' the Robot Spaceman

Spook the spaceman is a cute little guy made from tin cans. I found him in 'Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas for 1959' magazine.
'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.
