Grim Reaper!

So Halloween is coming up and I saw one of these guys while out shopping yesterday. I thought I'd try my hand at making one and I think it turned out well.

It was fun and fairly easy. Here's how to make one.
You will need: a plastic skull, a wire clothes hanger, some black cloth, a small amount of glue and string.

Make two small holes at the base of the skull so that the hanger can go straight through. You only need about half the length of the hanger, snip it off and thread it through the skull. Now make a twist directly below the skull and shape the shouders and arms.

Now cut two squares in the cloth, one bigger than the other. Since you're going to shred the bottom you don't have to be exact. Cut a slit in the middle of the squares and dress your skull with the larger square going on first.

Cut a long thin strip of cloth and glue the middle to the top of the skull. Let it overhang the face a bit to look like a hood. Tie a string to the wire under the neck and hang up so you can easily shred the bottom of all your cloth. And then you're done.
Hope you have fun with it!

It certainly turned out very nice...I think it's a lot more meaningful to make your decorations as opposed to just going out and buying them.
