I am so excited to share this idea with you. We all know faux animal heads are all the rage, but some are super expensive! I have an inexpensive fix for that.
You know those brightly colored bull pinatas? Well the next time you are at a birthday party, let the kids beat the crap out of it and then steal its head. Yes, that is an odd thing to say but just do it.
I started with a plain old bull piñata. First I had to take all the colored paper off the bull. Just a side note, he was decapitated when I did this.
Then i shredded some newspapers and used mod podge to cover the head. It was so simple and I love the result.
At first I hung him directly on a nail, but I came across a wooden plaque at Hobby Lobby and thought it may look more finished by mounting it. So I added that on by gluing the head to the plaque.
It is a whimsical and fun way to jump on the animal head trend without actually needing an animal or too much effort.
Have you jumped on the animal trophy wagon? How have you used them in your home?
