When making stuff for Halloween, I prefer to reuse parts I already have on hand. In this case, a large pot and some tubing I'd gotten for a different project. I also used a black garbage bag for the head and attached the tubes/legs to the bag as well. That way, when the holiday is over, I have less to clean up. The eyes are coke bottle caps, the fangs are pieces of plastic that hold multiple bottles together (ie ketchup bought in bulk from Sam's). He's "hiding" under my rose bush to cover flaws in design and implementation.
