Why we love it: Whether it’s resting on a rustic mantle or hanging in a cozy library, this trendy twist on taxidermy makes any room look alive.

What you need: Measuring tape; four pieces of plywood; power saw; eye goggles; mask; Gorilla Glue; painter’s tape; wood stain of choice; cardboard; pencil; scissors; deer head silhouette; white chalk; white paint; small paintbrush; and water bowl.

How to make it: Measure and cut the plywood to desired size, making sure all the boards are equal in dimension. Secure the boards together with Gorilla Glue. Place the painter’s tape on the board for maximum hold. Once dry, remove the tape, and stain the wood. Let dry. Cut out a deer head silhouette and center it on the wood. Tape down, and trace with the chalk. Paint the silhouette white, let dry, and rest against the wall.
