Step 1: Materials
PVC(At least 5 feet long)
A cutter of some sort
Step 2: The Handle
If you have a PVC pipe that is longer than 5 feet, cut it down and paint it. This will become the handle. You want to have many coats of paint so that the paint is completely smooth.
Step 3: Templates
Cut out the cardboard templates. There are four pieces:
A straight 11" for the middle prong
2 - 14" piece for the side prongs
12 - 2" diagonal pieces
2 - attaching pieces
Step 4: Cutting the Foam
First, draw the pieces onto the foam. Using a Dremel to start the cut, cut the foam with an exacto knife. Use the Dremel on a low setting or you will lose control of it.
Step 5: Painting
Paint the pieces. Do not use spray paint as it will eat away at the foam.
Step 6: Final Assembly
Glue the pieces of the head together. Then glue the head to the body. Make sure to wipe away any excess glue.
