I’ve been busy preparing for my eldest son’s 4th birthday and I started planning it since January. He wants a Toy Story and Star Wars LEGO Theme. So good luck Mama. I have to be creative to combine these 2 themes.
One of the diy’s I made was a buzz light year spaceship pizza tray.
Materials I used:
3 pizza trays (from the dollar store)
3 small empty cans of soup
2 jar covers (for the bottom)
neon green poster paper (dollar store)
purple construction paper
black electrical tape
silver metallic duct tape
This is why I had to start working on the details 2 months before.
1st, I saved all the small cans we used. After washing it in the dishwasher, it was easy to remove the labels. Then I let it dry.
After it’s dry, I covered the (open part) with masking tape and made it the bottom part (I did this with all 3 cans)
After that, I covered all cans with the silver duct tape.
I cut thick strips around 1.5 inches of the neon green poster paper. (Just enough to fit around the cans)
Then I cut about half an inch strips of the purple construction paper. (Again, just enough length to cover the cans.
I taped the neon green and purple strips with the black electrical tape around the can. (I did this with the 2 cans) (You can refer to the pictures below).
Then I cut an oval shape from the neon green paper to look like the wings of the spaceship.
For the top part, I made a cone shape from the neon paper or you can use any cardboard. I cut the bottom straight. Placed it on top of the 3rd can and wrapped silver duct tape all around it.
For the bottom of the spaceship, I used 2 jar lids and covered it with electrical tape.
I will update this post with a picture of the finished product (with pizza ofcourse!) of this cool Buzz light year space ship after my son’s party. 🙂
The pizza tray held the stuffed crust pizzas but I would recommend adding something inside the cans like beans to hold it better.
