Hoo boy. I started this thing probably last January and just finished it 4 days before the end of October. 



I trawled ebay searching for Little People brunettes to be me and The ManFlesh and a couple of dogs to be the Beastie Grrrlz and a sofa.  The floor is wood grain scrapbook paper and the rug is a photo from a rug dealers trade magazine.



The tree is from a set of bottle brush trees with wired beads glued into it, a chenille stem for garland and a vintage mini- glass ball for the topper.



The outside, window.



The bottom where all the gazillions of little individual pine cone scales started getting glued on.  These are a big reason this took so long.  I got 3/4 done and then it sat for months and months.



The way the last of the pine cone scales were coming together at the top was not pleasing, so I added a little felt snow patch. 



Now I have to figure out where/how it will be hung up when we decorate for Christmas.

Thank you!  It is a 6" "paper mache" sphere.  Turns out that those spheres are actually plastic covered with a layer of paper mache, which makes the stronger and maybe harder to cut into. It also is a surprise when you're expecting to paint the inside; luckily I have a primer that works on just about anything.

Awwww!  YEY!  I have more Little People to use to make a couple more for ME-ME-ME that are non-holiday themed.  You can bet they won't be pine-coned, though.

Thank you!  I ended up with some "extra" paper mache spheres from some shipping errors and the company didn't want them back, so I have a feeling I'm just going to keep making these!
