Dress in the silver shirt, leggings and shoes and place the funnel hat on your head. Once you’re dressed, wrap the board around your chest area and join the ends with tape to create the Tin Man’s body. Punch holes at the top of the chest piece and attach silver string to secure the chest piece over your shoulders. Decorate your face with silver face paint and draw lines from your mouth to the edge of your jaw line with the grey eyeliner for an authentic, hinged-jaw Tin Man look!
