Because Papier-Mache solves everything...

I saw rackycoo's Holiday Photo Ornament ( http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417991.0 ) and I HAD to make something like it. Unfortunately I don't have all the little knick-nack type things to construct from like wooden blocks or wheels or anything so I constructed the base out of cardboard then covered it in papier-mache... because for some reason I think papier-mache solves everything. Then I painted it in gold acrylic. I DID find some wooden nobs so that helped. Then I found more tiny nobs and decorated the crap out of the whole thing. yaaaay!






I put both sides of my family's grandparents on it as a small memorial; two pictures of my dad's parents and two pictures of my mom's parents. I think my dad will especially like this. I can't wait until he comes home and sees it! Thanks, rackycoo, for posting such awesome crafts!
