DIY Large Chips: The only thing I can think of are two round cardboard circles cut from a box, attach toilet paper or paper towel (cut) roll in between with tape, wrap some dollar tree wrapping paper over it like a gift.
Rope for around statue: Red Rope Stanchions build three wooden stands, attach several Styrofoam balls on top and spray the entire thing gold. pool noodles or pipe insulation spray painted red, duct tape stripe
Diy Hollywood stanchion poles. I got 95% of the materials at the Dollar Tree and made the poles from cellophane cardboard rolls, 9 in. round tin pans, pipe cleaners, 2.4 in. floral foam balls, and masking tape. Now all that I need to do is spray paint them gold and add the red crepe paper for the red rope!
