On the weekend I posted on my social media pages about a cardboard spaceship costume the kids and I made using an umbrella, some cardboard and Makedo screws. Since then I have had so many enquiries from people who want to make the cardboard spaceship for halloween. I decided to do a quick post about how easy it was to put together with dimensions and links.
What you need for the costume:
Single walled Cardboard
Using single walled cardboard cut out 8 panels (using the dimensions in the below diagram).
Score the panels where the dotted lines are indicated.
Punch holes along the side as indicated below (using the provided tool by Makedo)
Join the panels together with the Makedo screws (using the provided tool by Makedo)
Place over the open umbrella and secure with clear tape.
Easy as that!
