Thank you for the comment. It's recycling, and it uses a basic basketweaving technique--twining, which lets you use an even number of spokes. The nesting ends mean you don't have little gaps where you change weavers. On top of that, it's relaxing!

Small-gauge wire like this is very posable. That's one of the reasons I love this craft and make so many different projects with it. My skier Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/Wire-Skier-a-Suji... ) is the basic pattern for making human characters.

What an inspiration! Thanks so much! I'm using black foamcore and running Sharpies along the edges.So glad I saw this.
Haunt Your House With Window Monsters!
I saw your work, and I had to try it, because my usual way of celebrating Halloween, emceeing a Downtown Trick-or-Treat, wasn't going to happen. I used black foamcore sheets from a dollar store, and i blackened the edges with permanent markers. This is just one window. There are two more to come!
Vicki, this is really simple and ingenious. You could also do this with outer space themes (planets, spaceships, aliens)
Your approval means a lot. I don't do fancy recipes, so I tried to think of other potato projects, and I'd always been interested in soft-sculpture doll heads, so...Pantyhose Potato Heads!

Glad you liked it. It's lots of fun, and a great imagination exercise
Sometimes, it's good to celebrate a failure. As my 7'3" brother says. "If you can't be an example, be a warning."

Thank you for your vote. Kids or grown-ups, it's still great!
Glad you enjoyed it. It doesn't have to be newspaper. Magazines, maps, rejected manuscripts, all can be turned into family treasures. When my family gathered for Christmas, I would put each family group's presents in their own Waste Paper Basket, and they would still be using it when the next Christmas rolled around.

Don't be afraid to post your own projects. It took me seven entries before the tape project made me a finalist. I plan to spend the $50 Amazon card on books.Thank you for your support.

If 139800 won't tell you....The "secret" is, each pair of opposite sides adds up to 7. 1 & 6, 2 & 5, 3 & 4. It comes in handy for magic tricks and bar bets. Each pair of dice means one part of the pair is a "die." Don't worry. It isn't a big deal. Besides, a giant die is a great idea for those of us who received the "clumsy gene" in our DNA. Easier to hold, and harder to lose. Nice, clear Instructable. Good luck. look for my Colossal Covid Pinata in the competition.

Did you use a quilling tool, or just coil them by hand?
Thank you. The Gorilla is Stopan, Stopan Go Rilla. He's a puppet/ventriloquist figure, made by the Axtell company. I'm calling the tape shell George, for Curious George and for my brother George "The Giant" Mc Arthur.
It's a lot like making a see-through dressmaker's dummy. There are also several Instructables with different ways to make tape ghosts.

this shows that an Instructable doesn't have to be detailed to be good. Sometimes, inspirational takes things to a higher level--"Go thou, and do it your way!"

Napping--Nature's way of saying, "See, you haven't paced yourself well enough before bedtime!" In our family, we like to take "a nap before we go to bed."
Actually, it's very true to MY life. Some of those photos were shot for this Instructable, but more than I would care to admit were already on my phone or computer! Thanks for reading, and thanks for commenting. Creating these how-tos has made my sheltering time more enjoyable. I'm supposed to go back to work next week, but I'll keep watching for interesting contests to enter.

This is a simple tutorial. Check out The Pine Needle Group for more instruction and inspiration. This is what I do to relax. I make baskets while I watch TV, when I'm waiting at a doctor's office, during long and boring meetings....
