I have a bunch of these little guys laying around:

I hope you can see them ok.

About the little guys:

-They were part of a school project
-They are papir mache
- I have resisted my desire to throw them away for a reson which I cannot fathom
-Limited time + a project I dont care about + Mass production= Poorly made

I know they are tacky and kind of a hopeless case, but, If anyone has any type of strange idea, Im willing to try it.

Put a hook in each and make tree ornaments...

String 'em and drape them as decoration...

Insane, expensive, labor-intensive idea:  cast them in a huge panel of clear resin, and make a table top out of the resulting slab....

hehehe it would be so funny if you asked what you use you had of actual weird little people, or, you know, if you should just disgard them..

You could make little bags, maybe big enough to fit three of them in? (Depending on how big they are of course.) Once you've made the bags and put them in you could give them to people as worry dolls. Each time someone has a worry they put on of the dolls under there pillow or in their bag and it may give them some comfort.
Silly idea but I thought it was pretty. You could give them to friends, family, even homeless people on the street?

Friday- cute idea! However, the little guys are thick and crunchy

(Approx. 4 in. tall and almost 1 in. thick)

Perhaps I could just hand them out to people with little names and mini bios on little tags... alot of work. Hmmm. I'll think about it

actually they are kind of cute.. the other nite on the news, i watched a program about a woman in nova scotia, who is a sculptor. she makes little sculptures and sets them all over the beaches of n.s. for ppl to find.. on the bottom she puts her website and ppl can leave their address and how they came to find the sculpture.. maybe u could do something like that.. put them in places around ur town/city.. call them happy dolls... include a poem to make someone smile..  Grin
