Well, why not?
So I went to the craft store, bought some styrofoam and dowels, and made a big yellow exclamation mark which now sits over my desk. It's fun and provides an easy way for people to find me.
|Make hole in hemisphere base, hot-glue wooden dowel|
|Cut tip off cone to make upper part of exclamation point|
|More hot glue to secure dowel better|
|Use cardboard tube to hold base with dowel in place for gluing and drying|
|Start tunnel in base of exclamation point upper with penknife|
|Continue tunneling with long screwdiver|
|Glue dowel into base of exclamation point upper|
|Use white glue to fill in gaps (bottom of exclamation mark)|
|Paint exclamation point yellow...|
|..and keep adding coats of yellow until styrofoam doesn't show through any more|
|Paint stem black and base purple (eventually four coats)|
