Default Octopus Ribbon Sculpture

A customer of mine is wanting me to make her an octopus ribbon sculpture- The one with the head/body shape that's the same as the pumpkin ribbon sculpture, with the legs being korker pieces. I'm needing some help with the body/head of the octupus... How do you form it and make it hold it's shape? Any advice would be helpful! Thanks so much!

are you wanting to make something like this?

I added a little starch to mine when I had it all finished and it seems to be holding.

Yes! That's it! How did you attach the korker pieces to the head?

i take 4 korker pieces and stitch them in the center like I do when making a korker. I then use some hot glue and glue the korker pieces to the head in the center. I found a tut a while back that really helped I think it showed how to make a crab but instead of making crab legs i made octopus "korker" legs. these are a lot of fun to make. I made them in orange, blue and purple and really cute for the summer

I you use swiss dot ribbon for the korkers, they're even cuter since they look like tentacles. that's what I do on mine anyways...
