Just something I made while watching football games this weekend. I sorta made it up as I went. Needed something to hang up by front entrance to great guests.
It measures approx. 21" x 14"

Materials used include styrofoam board, craft paint, split bamboo, silk flowers, hot glue, rope. Cost about $1.50
It looks a lot better in person.It just didn't photo too great.

A great mixture of media. The flowers mixed with a bamboo perimeter are a nice touch. What is the tiki dude made from?

Thanks monkeyman. The tiki is also cut from a thin sheet of styrofoam. You can't tell from the photo but the nose and mouth are another layer still. Green base is level 1, tiki body is level 2 and mouth & nose are level 3.
