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
