Taxidermy Animal Heads and One Reason My Mom is Awesome

Eighth graders have been creating taxidermy art. There are a lot of beautiful examples out there. Like this and this and this. My mom had a bunch of random cork coasters that she gave to me and we used them as the frame for our taxidermy animals.

We used foil to create the shape and then use art paste (have you tried this? My kids said it looked and felt like snot, tmi) but it stuck the paper on and we were able to use it multiple days with out it drying up. Then we used acrylic craft paint to paint both the animal and the coaster. These aren't finished but I am excited to see how these turn out.

My mom has been here this weekend helping us power wash, sand, paint and decorate our porch on what was supposed to be her day. My mom rocks, for many reasons but she is always serving others every chance she can get!

Hope your Monday feels like a Friday!
