Attach His Arms With (More) Dowels
Now that Lloyd’s body is mostly assembled, it’s time to attach his arms! Measure two wooden dowels so that one is a bit longer than the length of his lower torso, and the other is a bit longer than his upper torso. Sharpen both ends of each dowel and insert through the center point of the side of each “section” of his body so that the sharpened parts are sticking out at both ends. (In this case, one dowel through his upper torso, and the other through his lower torso.) This way, when you place the arms at either side of his body, it will stick into the dowels to help support that weight. To attach his arms, make sure to create “pilot holes” with another sharpened dowel into his Rice Krispie arms in the places where each dowel will go, so that you can be sure it will fully penetrate and hold.
