Start by making a small loop on the end of the pipe cleaner. This will be the head.

Make sure to be very generous with how small you make it; The bigger it is, the more likely you are to run out pipe to fold.



After you're sure about the size you've gone with, twist the loop to ensure stability.

Step 2: Arms

Next, fold the long part of the pipe cleaner in on itself, to be the same length as the other arm.

After you've don that, wrap the excess pipe cleaner around the neck, and point it downward.
