Step 1: Step 1: the Frame

to make the frame you need chicken wire and wire cutters.

roll your chicken wire into a cylinder then tie it up with some cable ties this is going to be the body.

then do your arm do the same thing as the body but with a smaller piece of chicken wire.

to make the fingers you do the same thing but with a tiny piece of chicken wire.

depending on how much time you have got u can make a bone for the leg exactly like the arm.

Step 2: Step 2: Paper Mache

cover the body in paper mache and leave to dry or about 2-3 days.

Step 3: Step 3: Shirt Putting On

once you have let the paper mache dry (has to be dry otherwise it wont work) place the shirt over the body depending on the size of your skeleton i just used an old shirt that was lying about.

Step 4: Step 4: the Head

all you have to do is get your skeleton head and tie it on to the body if u want you can put a halloween mask on it if you think it would be better.
