deer trophy

I’ve seen these amazing deer trophies from card board in various blogs, magazines and stores… But instead of spending money on it, I thought I’d rather recycle some old cardboard boxes and either paint or wallpaper them… Luckily I just received my globe that I had bought from Ebay. The box found a new purpose 🙂

Via Noces de coton I found the template and instructions on the chronicle books blog:

So here my result and how it looked in my living room:


I’m quite satisfied with the outcome… though it was pretty difficult to get a nice sharp edge. First I thought of spray painting or wall-papering it, but actually, I like the cardboard just as it is. What do you think?? Should I leave it that way??

The ones I found with wallpaper are quite fun:
