Faux deer mount…How-to!

Hello everyone!

In this post, I’m sharing a cheaper way to make a faux deer mount that is very popular right now. If you look on Etsy, you can find one this size for $100 at the cheapest and I just wasn’t going to pay that for something that seemed so easy to make. So, here is my version for $45. Β It took me about 2 hours with drying time.
