Project Upcycle Day 8 - Devo the Found Objects Robot

Yesterday I asked what I would make out of a bunch of strange objects. A doorknob, some baby bottles that Laney has grown out of, some pacifiers that Laney no longer uses, some googly eyes, a metal box that I have been saving my earrings in (which doesn't work very well for that purpose), and a broken (yet very pretty) hair cone? The hint was: Number 5 is Alive!

Ok, so that's another easy clue. Let's get started on our found objects sculpture. I have just discovered this sort of art work and I love it. I just want to make a ton of things this way. Terry is going to get mad if I don't stop thinking about making all our strange objects into little robots though :(

1) Attach doorknob head to the metal box body.

2) Attach pacifiers to each side of the box body for arms.

3) Attach baby bottles to the bottom of box body for legs.

4) Add some finishing touches. Googly eyes, a cool hat, and some Megadeth bling!

Introducing Devo - the Found Objects Robot
His likes include: Songs that involve lyrics telling you to Whip It, Whip It Good; Megadeth; staring curiously at people
His dislikes include: Stupid people (he ain't just a doorknob), people telling him what to do (he's his own robot!)
He just wants to join a home where the people appreciate his individuality.

***Devo will be listed at Tawny Bee for $80. Half the proceeds ($40) from the sale will be donated to the Heart and Stroke Foundation as part of my Upcycle for Heart and Stroke 2010 campaign.***

Stay tuned tomorrow to find out what I'll be making out of an orange plaid wool skirt and some brown laces. Hint: ummmm... having trouble coming up with a good one this time.... uh... it'll be orange and plaid?
