See Honey Boo Boo made out of trash

Artist Jason Mecier went straight to his trash can to find inspiration for a portrait of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star Alana Thompson.

See Honey Boo Boo made out of trash

Some might argue that the family at the center of the hit TLC reality show Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is trashy. Well, now they actually are! Artist Jason Mecier crafted a portrait of the show's 7-year-old star, Alana Thompson, entirely out of trash.

Yes, seriously.

Mecier explained that he creates art out of everyday things. It reportedly took the artist over 50 hours to create the piece that weighs in at 25 pounds.

"Highlights include two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, sketti, butter, ten cheese balls, two Red Bulls, one Mountain Dew, a McDonald’s chicken nugget, a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one cabbage patch doll and a jar of Pigs Feet. No roadkill was injured during the making of this portrait!" he said.

Uh, cool?

The piece is expected to go on sale shortly — and it will undoubtedly get snapped up by campy reality television lovers. The joke's on the buyer, though: No one will care about Honey Boo Boo in a couple of years and he'll be stuck with a stinky piece of art that won't sell.

No word on how the Georgia family feels about the art — mama June is probably too busy with her self-proclaimed role as Coupon Queen to care.

And Alana? Something tells us she's over this whole fame thing.
