Trophy Mount

I dedicate this project to my boyfriend.  He loves to hunt and fish and he mostly does it in he pajamas while laying in bed.  Yes, you guessed it, the Hunt and Slaughter channel, as I call it.



In the south, after a palm leaf drops down it has to be trimmed.








After the trimmed branches die, they fall to the ground and look like this.

To make a "Trophy Mount".
You need:
1 dried palm
2 jiggly eyes
1 black pom pom
ribbon to hang
glue gun

Pick your palm, wipe it down.





With a glue gun, glue on jiggly eyes and a black pom pom for the nose.









Then flip it over to glue on a looped ribbon to hang on the wall.










I hung him outside.  He's so cute. 
* If you want a girl trophy mount, you just glue on a bow.


HAPPY CRAFTING!


Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Thanks for stopping by and I can't stop following you. This dried palm is very good for home decoration. I sometimes picked a few when I passed by the tree. Great idea to make it such fun and nice wall decoration.

  7. Too cute! Sure hope your boyfriend doesn't get hurt while hunting. It can be a bit dangerous you know. And you never know what you might find. Maybe, cookie crumbs in bed. At least that's what my hubby would find. He loves cookies! What a clever idea. I have a new link party, Share Your Cup Thursday. You should hop over and share this. I am now following you.
    Hugs,
