As you’re all well aware, I’m a big fan of taxidermy. All the different kinds of taxidermy that people post on Krrb is my favorite thing to see each week. So I decided to do a little taxidermy research and came back with a bunch of creative ways that people are making taxidermy! From Legos to crochet, there’s a ton of different ways to make taxidermy these days.

Legos

I can’t imagine a childhood that didn’t consist of constantly playing with Legos. I was always trying to make the largest structure that I could. Brooklyn artist, David Cole has designed several different Lego kits to turn your hunting lodge into a kid-friendly room!

This modern take on the old taxidermy classic uses polyresin material to create a mold shaped just like your favorite animal! Plus, because of the material used, they’re super light weight. Each piece is custom painted to give it that extra bit of uniqueness.

Crochet

Blogger Steph Crows can crochet just about anything, including burgers…so when the challenge of an ugly sweater contest arose she took it a step further. Based on this tutorial Steph was able to achieve a whole new level of ugliness! She’s gone ahead and killed two deer with one stone because once the ugly sweater party is over you can mount this cute taxidermy on your wall!

Awkward

Ok, so technically this is real taxidermy but it’s so awkward that I couldn’t not include! A collection of awkwardness like this can not be ignored. Next time you’re thinking about how cool some real taxidermy in your home would be, maybe take a look at this gallery and go with something fake.

What kind of taxidermy do you prefer? The real thing or a creative take?
