It seems that everywhere you turn, you’ll find one animal head or another. It’s very prevalent in decor shops..or maybe it’s just me.
I’ve moved into a new home recently. Decorating has brought me to every furniture/home decor brick and mortar and e-store there is on the planet.
But I don’t think it’s just me. Otherwise when I type “animal head” in the search engines, I wouldn’t get a slew of faux taxidermy listings. So I conclude, it’s our new human obsession.
Now that I’ve determined that, I must admit, I LOVE animal head accessories! I am a victim of the new at home and in fashion trend.
In fact, I am setting myself up to have a few around the house. Since I need so many, I’ve decided to immerse myself in another DIY project to make my animal head accessories.
DIY Animal Head Accessories for the Home
Looking online, here are some ideas I found.
Cardboard Deer Head
You’ve surely seen these around from Cardboard Safari. A very casual feel to your home, it would look great in a bedroom or family room.
However, if you don’t have $30 to drop on cardboard pieces, Instructables has clear steps, template included, for you to make your very own deer head from cardboard.
Not only does it liven up a room, it’s totally eco – made from re-usable, recyclable materials like cardboard!
Paper Rabbit Bust
Anthology Mag provided this excellent template to follow. The end result is an origami-inspired rabbit bust that looks fantastic in a kids room.
You know that’s what I’m going to do!! It’s a very soft and cute look, just like kids are…when they’re sleeping of course lol…
Animal Head Accessories in Fashion
In fashion, the possibilities of incorporating animal heads are endless. From rings, to necklace pendants, to earrings, there is so much out there to express animal instinct.
I own a pair of lion head earrings, a cheetah ring, and an owl necklace. I’ve had them for a while and I STILL find they’re in style…it’s like leopard print, it never ceases to be fashionable.
Here are a few other animal head accessories I’ve found online that are on my wish list.
This leopard brooch from Coco Princess is simply stunning. Sophisticated and elegant, it would go so well with a simple white blouse or even on a headband.
I found these lion men’s cufflinks on Etsy. No doubt these would amplify a men’s outfit. It’s an original piece to add, giving immediate style and panache!
Finally, here is something that works well for kids and adults alike. This handmade bullhead backpack is of genuine leather. While it may not hold much, it surely will store your most needed belongings when you’re out and about and dont want to carry a heavy duty purse.
It’s got adjustable straps and you’d be turning heads as you walk away with your animal head accessorising your back!
