Assembling the Materials
Lori starts the process with pieces of precut wood (looks like a large wooden dowel from the hardware store) that she connects to fashion the torso and head. Alternativeley you can use a rollerup piece of cardboard wraped with masking tape (a toilet paper roll). She drills holes and snakes wires through to make the arms and legs. For the head you can use a syrofoam ball or a balled up piece of newspaper wrapped in tape. I use 20 gauge wire from the dollar store for the arms and legs. You can wrap it twice for the legs.
