I have a project I want to do, where I need to create some 3-D stick figures?  (Basically, I want to make Christmas tree ornaments that are stick figures.)  Any ideas as to how to go about this?  I can't even decide what medium to use.  If anyone knows of a similar project here (or elsewhere online), I'd love to see a link.  I just couldn't figure out what search terms to use.  (Got lots of animation results.)

Thank you!

How about using pipe cleaners for limbs and maybe ping pong balls for heads?

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Do you think they'd hold their shape okay?

You might need to double up the pipe cleaners if you want them to support the head (I envisioned the head having a loop at the top to hang from the tree), but I suppose it depends how big you want them to be.

Popsicle sticks and wire (like wire hangers) are two things that instantly come to mind.
