To make the body cut a dowel half an inch thick to six inches in length, then wrap the heavy paper around it to the length and thickness indicated in the graphic above, when it comes to making the funnel on top cut the 2 sides at an 80% angle. then coat it all in silver duct tape and draw on the lines with a sharpie or another kind of black marker.

Step 2: The head

To make the top cut out a rectangle of paper 2.5 inches long then fold it into a circle, cover it in red duct tape and tape it to the body. to make the inner part form a small cone and barrel shape (I used paper but clay or something similar would work better). when it has been shaped and painted (make the cone gold and the barrel black) cut it open halfway along its length. now glue a small piece of wire across the red ring and when it has set, glue it to the cone-and-barrel via the cut on the midway point. Finally, glue a small piece of wire to the top of the ring and the top of the cone-and-barrel, and you are done!
