Every year I make my nephews Christmas ornaments.  I try to center the ornament around a theme of their life that year, or something they've really been into.  This year, for my 10yo nephew, I made a Union soldier from the Civil War.  He is all about war strategy and reading books on the civil war.  (Weird, I know ... but he takes after his awesome aunt (ME!)).  For my other nephew I did Mickey Mouse.  He's 4 and is obsessed with the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cartoon. Smiley

I made them with tinfoil all crumpled into a ball, then built up sculpy around them.  Why do I have multicolored sculpy?  Well.. my precious boys combined my black, hot pink and white together, that's why! LOL

Sorry for the crappy cell pics.

Thanks for looking!! Smiley

Those look great.  The Mickey would be a big hit here!
