I used a polythene for skirt.polythene has handles so we have to cut them and we also have to cut bottom of polythene.now polythene is in rectangular shape as shown in figure.now seal the both open ends of of polythene.now it looks like a rectangular bag or your potato chips pack as shown in fig.Now make a hole on side of polythene slightly larger size than computer fan and make a rectangular hole on polythene on other side.
