they are mini clay pots, painted and small styrofoam balls for the heads, and pipe cleaner for the arms and nose. and lots of hot glue! lol we bought floral wiring and looped it around and then put it through the heads and down into the pot, i stuffed some foam into the bodies with a little hot glue to help hold it all together. and painted the faces with acrylic paint. thats basically it, and of course its just ribbon for the scarves.
hope that helps!
