I thought maybe this should go on the reuse board, but I didn't see anyplace to put completed projects there. . . .

I've had this project rattling around in my brain for ages, but was finally motivated to complete it when my SO made me watch the movie, Why We Fight: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0436971/.  It was powerful and disturbing and made me feel like I had to do something!

So I did this:


I was waiting to post until I got better lights and my finished project didn't look quite so mangy, but we're fighting with the HOA to keep it up at all so I'm not sure what it's final incarnation will be - if we are allowed to keep it up at all.

What I did:

Bones: freecycled hula hoop, cheap metal curtain rods, duct tape


Skin: grocery sacks, modge podge

I should be clear that this was done with the utmost respect to soldiers and their families!

REALLY cool, and very clear instructions.

Didn't the HOA get the "Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward Men" memo? How can anything that starts with a hula-hoop be so controversial.

Anyway, let's hope that, by next Christmas, we won't need protest peace signs any more.
