Drape the cheese cloth over the frame and spray starch all over it and let it dry for 48 hours or use a hair dryer to speed it up (you might have to hold the head to keep it sturdy while you use the hair dryer) when its done remover the frame. Then you are done!

I make these every year first with my kids and now with my grandkids. We like to sprinkle glow in the dark glitter on them before the starch dries.
