Cut dowel rods as follows: 16 1/2 in. for spine/skull, 4 in. for upper arms (2), 7 in. for lower arms/hands (2). Working on flat, waxed paper-covered surface, use hot glue gun to assemble frame. Attach upper arms 5 1/2 in. down from top to allow room for skull; let set. Attach lower arms to ends of upper arms, holding each rod in angled position until set. When cool, wrap with white ribbon, securing with hot glue as needed; leave bottom 3 in. of spine bare to insert into base. Prepare dowel rods for lower legs and feet: Cut 2 sections, 6 in. each. Wrap with white ribbon, leaving 1 1/2 in. of 2 sections bare to insert into base.
