deerhead view diy project: mollie’s newspaper taxidermy

Many of you have noticed the amazing paper taxidermy moose that appears on the wall in some of Barb’s Before & After Basics posts, and we’ve received several requests for a tutorial on how to make one. We asked South Carolina-based artist Mollie Greene — moose creator and woman behind the charming Etsy shop Royal Buffet — to share some of her sculpting secrets with us and she kindly agreed!

This is a great project for a rainy day or a lazy weekend. The large-scale antelope adds the perfect texture and drama to a cozy living room or den and a fabulous addition to your fall home decor. Thank you so much for sharing, Mollie! — Kate

  3. Mandy says:

    This is so great, I love it !!!

    I have 2 of the Anthro versions (the Zebra and the Antelope) and they are made from old book pages. I find that with these kinds of projects, sometimes book pages are easier to work with than newspaper…just my 2 cents… love the concept, and the tutorial is super clear. Nice job!

  5. Erica says:

    So Awesome…great tutorial!

    These are absolutely beautiful. Reminds me of building old high school homecoming floats out of chicken wire and tissue. Love it!!!

    Just had to tell you that I am so excited that Mollie created and posted this project. I loved the moose that she created and even asked her how much it would be for me to have one made, but it was out of my price range. I ll defintely try this project. While I’m sure it wont look as good as one of Mollie’s mooses, I am thankful I can at least try based on this tutorial. Thanks again!
