This year I made an 8-foot tall Grim Reaper. I built the Grim Reaper so large because I wanted to be able to go inside of it. On Halloween night, I hid inside and jumped out of the back to scare the trick-or-treaters.
- lots of PVC pipe
- chicken wire
- black spray paint
- brown spray paint

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Frame
You will need to make 2x4 that can hold the PVC pipe by drilling a hold the size of your PVC. Attach the 2x4's to your plywood base(you can make you base what ever size you want I used a 3.5x4ft base). Build the body of your grim with the PVC pipe.
Step 2: Chicken Wire and Fabric
Attach chicken wire to the PVC in the shape of the Grim. Once you have your shape time to add the fabric.
Step 3: Final
Add all the little details. I used bone gloves for hands I used hangers inside the gloves to form them to the shape I wanted. I made a sickle using PVC and cardboard for the blade.
