Now this is an interstellar beauty! And it takes just a few minutes to make! It’s so easy you could create your own solar system of planets! All you need is a little paint, a Styrofoam ball, a CD and some glue and glitter. So get started creating your own universe!
Saturn Model Supplies
- 3″ Styrofoam ball
- Spray paint color of choice
- CD or DVD with no label or writing preferably
- Glitter of choice
- Spray adhesive
- Hot glue gun or any thick adhesive
- Fishing line and an eyelet hook (for hanging)
- Wood base and dowel (for placing on a stand.)
- Drill for stand.
Cut your Styrofoam ball exactly in half
Gather all your supplies. You also need some spray paint and hot glue or thick adhesive.
Spray your CD on one side, use glitter and repeat on other side.
To make using glitter easier take a piece of paper and fold it in half.
Lay your CD on the paper and sprinkle your glitter onto it.
Shake off the excess.
When you’re done bend the paper along the crease you previously made and carefully pour the extra glitter back in the container!
Spray your Styrofoam halves.
Using hot glue or any thick adhesive of choice attach your Styrofoam halves onto the center of each side of your CD.
TWO WAYS TO DISPLAY SATURN MODEL: Place a small metal eyelet hook in the top and use fishing line to hang it. Or you can use any small piece of wood as a base. Drill a hole in it to fit a small wooden dowel than push your Saturn down onto the dowel. Both methods are shown below.
You can easily attach some fishing line to your planet for hanging.
