Step 1: Creating Falcor's "Skeleton"
-Cut a hole in the top and bottom of the cylinder. This is where you will be stepping into the body. It should be easy to pull up onto your hips but still snug.
Step 2: Adding Falcor's Legs
-Mold the wire at one end so it tapers off. This will be the foot. Bend (and cut if necessary) the wire about half of the way up the cylinder to create the leg joint.
-Cut some of the horizontil wires where the upper leg will be touching Falcor's body. Wrap those wire around the body to attach the leg.
-Repeat for the remaining three legs.
Step 3: Falcor's "skull"
-Add a "bridge" to the top of the cylinder. This will be where Falcor's eyes will rest.
-Cut the ends of the cylinder where the mouth will be. Taper the ends a bit to create the mouth.
-When you are done, check to see how Falcor's head will fit with the body. Do not attach the head yet, however.
