Items that I used.
1. 1 set of old headphones.
2. at least 20 plastic grocery bags. the more the better.
3. Tape. I used free tape that I ordered from the postal service / or twine
4. Pvc Pipe. I used 1 1/2" x 6' pipe.
5. 2 pvc 1 1/2" 90 degree pipe elbows
6. 1 pvc 1 1/2" cross connector
7. 25 ft of sewer/septic paper. I picked this up at Home Depot. It is like a very thin fiberglass fabric.
Step 1: The Headphones!
I used a pair of broken wireless headphones. you can find an old 70ish style set or even use a old phone headset as long as it has a sturdy over the head piece.
Step 2: Prepare the Head
Step 3: Creating the Internal Skeleton
1 - 4" piece
2 - 10" long pieces
1 - 4ft long piece
(I drilled a hole through the 4ft pipe 1" from the bottom of the body so that I could hang it upside down)
I started by connecting the cross connector and the 4ft. pipe for the spine, and then 4" piece for the neck to the top of the cross connector. After you have that completed add the 10" pieces to remaining open connector ends. Then add the elbow connectors to create the shoulders. sorry I did not get photos of the cut pipe and connectors.
Once you have the armature created attach the head. I used twine to attach the head. I pushed it down on to the pvc neck. You can move the bags to fit around the neck. I wrapped twine around it wrapping it to the armature. You could also use tape also to connect the head to the armature.
Step 4: Giving the Body Some Bulk
Step 5: Wrapping the Cocoon.
I started by taping an end of the septic paper to the head and started wrapping it. I continued to wrap from the head and then over the shoulders and then on to the torso. When I added on another strip after I ran out I would tuck it under the last several wraps and then I would start wrapping a few rows up and then keep working my way to the top of the pipe that is hanging,
Here is also My giant spider that has about a 10' leg span. the Body is about 4ft tall.
