Below I listed what you needed. In the photo not everything is shown like all pvc connectors.
What you will need:
1/2 inch pvc pipe (about 2-3 long ones, can be found at homedepot)
6 --45 degree pvc connecters (homedepot)
3--90 degree pvc connecters
1--t shaped pvc connecter
1--plus shape connecter
* You can play around with connectors depending on how you your jack to pose so get some extra degree connecters to play with the model.
floral wire (walmart)
2- half sphere styrophome to make a full sphere for the head
hot glue gun
3--felt black material (wal-mart craft section)
white acrylic paint (Wal-mart craft section)
black acrylic paint
white tulip fabric paint (walmart craft section)
white thread for sewing
3 yards black fabric
white t shirt
white fabric pencil
large white button
2 prop skeleton hands
sew on velcro
Step 1: Cutting the PVC pipe (frame)
Here were my dimensions of my skeleton frame parts
neck pipe--5 inches
shoulders-- 8 inches each( need 2 of these)
arms-- 16 inch piece and 22 inch piece ( need 2 of each set)
Torso--23 inches long
Hips 2-3 inch pieces (need 2)
Legs - 22 inch piece and 33 inch piece ( need 2 of each set)
Use your pvc connectors to creat a pose for your jack frame.
Use your PVC cutter to adjust lengths of your body.
I marked the picture with red dots to show you where I used my connectors .
Used the Plus shaped connector for the neck.
Used T shaped connector to connect the legs and torso
90 degree and 40 degree connectors to connect legs and arms together to the rest of the body .
I played around with the connectors and see what pose i like the best. You can glue the connectors together if you like. The reason I didn't was because I wanted to be able to take it apart for easy storage and also to be able to move the pipes for adjustments I might want later.
