Inspired by a conversation with a close friend, who maintains that no masculine decor is complete without a) wood, and b) taxidermy, I decided I did indeed want a mounted deer head in my space. But I like making stuff, and to be honest, I’m not really keen on all the steps that go into actually making my own mounted ten-point bust…namely, killing a deer and stuffing it.
So, I improvised.

Instead of carving up plywood, I opted to use wood grain Contact paper mounted onto hardboard. It’s much less expensive, and means that those with a tools as simple as a craft knife and cardboard can make this one.
Once you’ve got the wood grain Contact paper tip and the pattern, it’s pretty easy math. Details in the video.
