1. Wire and Newspaper

Wire and Newspaper

For this faux taxidermy craft project, you will be building an armature first using chicken wire screen.

If you have never worked with making sculptures before, you will want to have a template of some sort for your animal head.

Once your armature is ready, you then cover the whole thing with crumpled and Mod Podged strips of paper.

Styrofoam Narwhal

How cute!

This is my favorite because the narwhal looks so adorable and I am in love with the nautical details.

The head and tusk of this cutie were made using styrofoam.

They were Mod Podged with fabric and then glued to the board.

The latter was first painted and embellished with the rope border.
