Homemade Robots

Whimsical robots made from old cans, tins, and leftover bits and bobs have become somewhat of a cottage industry lately, and can be found everywhere from Etsy to your local craft show. Here are a few I found recently at a small town art gallery.

The largest robot is 12 1/2 inches tall.
 Mr. Half and Half has a themostat head and arms made from socket wrenches.
The Clock Bot has a vintage alarm clock head and arms made from can openers.
 The tiny T&T robot has a spice box body, a film canister head,
and a clever hat made from a sink strainer.
They are adorable, and ready to take over the world.


  1. I absolutely love these and am so full of admiration for the people who create them.

  2. Always a big fan of the robots. The more intricate the better.
    They always have so much character and personality.
