Begin by measuring and cutting out two pieces of wire, one that is three feet and one that is five feet long. Next, choose a bead for the dancers head, slide it on to the longer piece of wire, bend the wire so that the bead is in the middle of the length of the wire, wrap the wire around the base of the bead, bend each piece of wire in half and wrap the ends underneath the bead or head to form the two legs. Take the shorter piece of wire and wrap it around the neck of the figure to form the two arms.
Next, use masking tape to wrap the body, arms and legs. Paint your figure a color of your choosing and set aside to dry. Use fabric scraps and hot glue gun to attach clothing to the dancer.
Next, thread raffia through the wire at the back of the bead or head to make hair. Use your hot glue gun to attach bundles of raffia to the wrist and ankles. Attach a decorative piece of paper to your scrap of cardboard using a glue stick. Attach one foot of you're dancer to the cardboard base with your hot glue gun. Bend your dancer in to a dance pose and have fun.
