faux taxidermy

i've been loving all this faux taxidermy that's been going around and i wanted to make my own super cute sets. in our dining room we have a yellow and grey thing going on with grey barnwood picture frames and all. there's a lot of open wall space in that room that i want to fill with more photos and different types of faux taxidermy. so i started with these plush guys; a deer and doe. i found the plaques in a natural wood at joann's and i stained them grey. then i made two deer out of felt (not bothering to make the legs and tail and such.) then i cut them off at the waist at an angle and attached them to the plaques. i think they're super cute and i'm working on another set of these guys with a twist for an upcoming art show. i also have some cardboard taxidermy that i'll show another week. i might try some paper mache taxidermy next...
