  1. Hello Tesa, for the face we found an image of Uncle Sam and had a local copy shop enlarge and print it for us. We attached it like a mask to the body.

  2. This is fantastic! Can you tell me how you did the face? I’m wanting to put my own spin on something like this for my 4th of July parade (I too am extremely competitive), I need another win!

  3. June 30,2009 at 00:29 -The Uncle Sam is so awesome I would like to know how tall is he,and what is the wire over,I would love to try to make this for my home town parade,next year, you guys are the best,cant wait to see this years float! Cindy lots of group hugs really help.

  4. We built a simple armature with 2 X 4 boards. Each leg (board) was stuck into a 5 gallon bucket that we poured concrete into. We covered the whole thing with chicken wire. We then stuffed the holes of the chicken wire with tissue paper

  5. Could you tell me how you build the frame for this! I have been parading for 12 years and have run out of new ideas! I would love to copy cat your awesome idea!
