What I Did: In my continuing quest to recycle various materials into art, I attempted to make a bottle cap robot. Essentially, you take a bunch of bottle caps and glue them together. How hard could it be? Apparently, very hard. Why? For starters, you don’t glue anything together. You drill holes and use wires to connect the caps.

Next Time I Will:
– Plan out what I wanted to make before I started making it.
– Use wire instead of glue.
– Get a more diverse selection of caps

    Thanks, guys 🙂

    It certainly didn’t turn out as bad as it could have. However, I’d argue that it is a far cry from what I was going for. Haha, at the very least, I wish that I used another kind of glue, as my poor robot is covered in it.

    It sort of looks like he has a big bladder. But I think overall you did a good job!
