Fun with misused hardware supplies. Pretty simple: 1) Make a skeleton with pvc and attach it to a piece of plywood. 2) Use chicken wire to create the form. The eyes are kick balls. 3) The skin is good ol' duct tape (much easier than the paper and glue thing). 4) Paint. 5) To get it on the roof I had to actually contruct a ramp and pulley system - if not careful this can quickly become a guillotine. 6) Last step was to put more holes in my roof. And there you have it.
Things You'll Need
- Large PVC pipes
- Mounting bands
- Chicken wire

Step 1PVC skeleton, chicken wire to create the form and graphic kick balls for the eyes.

Step 4Constructed a ramp and pulley system to get it on the roof.
Step 5Put big holes in my house (again).

If the duct tape dries up, You'll need Fiberglass cloth to restored it.
