Update 12/30/17!!
I got a few more additions done in time for this year's holiday season! I never got the chance to post the though! I will keep the new pics at the top of this thread for easy viewing and then move them down into spoilers once I make new things!

First up I made some FiM characters to go with the pony theme! Next year I hope to add in some G1!




I loved the art from the movie so I took all the lineart from either the movie or its stock art! Twilight sits a little funny so she has the present to block the fact her butt isn't on the ground :P

My big project this year was patching up the paper mache horse, but she is saved! It took a lot of work, and her feet got so warped she couldn't stand on her own anymore, so we had to glue wood boards to her back and use steel poles for support. But other than that I think she's looking much more festive this year! I did all the extra sculpting of her accessories with paper mache air dry clay.







Hey everyone!
The past couple of years i have been working on and off on holiday decorations for my family's home! I've never really showed them off anywhere but the neighborhood and since most of them are MLP themed anyway i figured I should start showing off here! I mostly just make decorations for Halloween and Christmas right now, so I'll try and seperate the two from each other. I'll continue to update this thread as I make more things!

Old pictures are under spoliers to try and keep loading times down!

Halloween decorations:
Pumpkins!

I'm not sure why but I never took a picture of this pumpkin. I wasn't really proud of it but it wasn't the worst thing I had done either.

Yard Decorations:
All of these are traced on wood (so don't give me too much credit for the art! :P) and then cut out and painted and sealed with outdoor acrylic paints. My dad is nice enough to cut them out for me still, and he does an excellent job everytime, so he deserves credit for that!

Christmas Decorations:
Yard Decorations:
These are made the exact same way my Halloween ones are! I've only made two so far, but I plan to eventually have a a grand, all generation pony party in our yard for Christmas!

I found this paper mache horse at Goodwill last year and patched her up and painted her to look like My Pretty Pony. Unfortunately she wasn't stored properly and her hooves got broken and warped and she was falling apart along her back and belly as well. I was able to patch her up a bit, but her hooves are still warped and she no longer stands properly. I'm still working on restoring her for this year, but she may end up with a metal pole in her belly so she can be secure in our yard :(

The wooden ponies are marvelous! The paper-mache repaint is so creative, too, I hope you can restore her!

Ooh, I love your decorations. I've never seen anything like this before. This is so cool. =D

Rough at first glance, but actually kind, helpful and supportive.
