I know faux taxidermy (aka 'plush taxidermy') is probably too overdone. But I still love it, so stay with me, k? These ornaments are very easy to make and super cute. I think they would make great gift tags, too!
Also, if you are one of those people that has to wait until Thanksgiving is done to start Christmas, I apologize for starting early. But I'm in the Christmas mood already!I got these adorable animals (a moose and a polar bear) at Ikea for $.49. Um, yeah. How much cheaper could this project be?!
Your first step is to choose a paper that coordinates with your animal or your decor. Cut out/punch out a circle (or any shape you want). Next you will have to cut off the animal's head. If you are wondering, it's a little sad. But the end result is too cute to be sad for long. I used hot glue to adhere my head to the paper circle. I then hot glued a piece of string to the back to use as a hanger. I covered the string up with another piece of paper. I thought this would also make it a bit sturdier.
