Faux Taxidermy Deer Diy!


Make your own deer head! I've been wanting to make a fake deer head like this for an unreasonable amount of time. Well I got around to it today! First of all you'll need to print these out.  They are templates, cut them out and they will piece into each other to make the deer/moose head you see above! It will only take two pieces of paper, and will make a cute-sized head. Oh and most importantly... PRINT ON CARDSTOCK.   

Here are the printables once more...




Note: The so called "Noggin" is actually apart of the neck. Now you can make it in just three easy steps.



Thats all! Print, Cut, Create. Once you print it out its pretty self explanatory how it goes together. But if it isn't here are all the different parts labeled and put in place.

Antlers

Snout

Main Part 1

Neck

Neck 2. Please note that I made a mistake in calling it a noggin on the printable, oops!

Main Part 2.


Ok well I think these would look cool pretty much anywhere, plus they are so light that you can just tape or tack them up on the wall. I folded the back strips that stick out to be plat and then taped it up that way. Here is the sideview.


I am super stoked about this and I might just go make some more ;). Will you make one? (or more?) Leave a comment below.

Thanks as always :),

P.S. I have to give the credit where credit is due to Christina Loff from Chronicle Books Blog whose template was modified to create the free printable I have today. Thanks Christina!

  12. I've seen the cardboard version of these deer-heads at stores, and haven't been willing to pony up the money for it, so I'm glad I found your printable/tutorial. Thanks for sharing! I think I'm going to be making one for my cubicle at work!

    1. Just tape or a tack. Its super light so with two pieces of tape or a few tacks it can be held up.

    This would work great for a base for doing a paper mache faux taxidermy head.

  23. I think you are absolutely FANTASTIC! I am now addicted to your blog. This is a phenomenal tutorial. I am truly impressed with your blog. It seems to portray you authentically. (I hope you get what I mean by that.) I find you totally inspiring and not-so-secretly wish my kids would do something as fantastically awesome as what you are doing. You are going to go places, Ty. Thank you for sharing your creative genius with us...I have a feeling you will be leading some jaw-dropping creative DIY program on TV one day. I can't wait to see where life takes you!

  29. I told my wife I had room on the wall for another trophy deer. I wanted to make a full sized one of these out of plywood. I think this will be a cuter and simpler joke to play on her. Also great idea for Christmas craft for children. Thanks for sharing!!
