Step 1: Prepare the Body

This photo was taken part way through the build after the pipecleaner legs had been attached.

Take a slice off the tennis ball. It needs a flat spot to stop rolling.

Cut the balloon in two pieces with the bulbous part about 1/3 of the length. Stretch the ballon over the tennis ball as shown.

Cut 2 pieces of pipecleaner, glue and bend to shape

Step 2: Prepare Head
