"I have had my eye on a faux taxidermy head for ages. I love the kitschness of them and a festive Rudolph version seemed like the perfect project. So, when I finally got round to thinking about making one, the first thing I did was get onto Pinterest to look for a pattern. I couldn’t believe that there was nothing at all available to download, so I have made my own and put a tutorial together for you as well. Keep reading to see how you do it!"

When I read the word taxidermy in the title Rudolph Faux Taxidermy Pattern, I said eeww. Wouldn't it be better to leave out the Taxidermy word? The project is really cute and I am glad that the creator was so resourceful when she couldn't find an already made pattern. I do agree with another commentator that it would be cute to make all of Santa's reindeer. Well, if you had the time before Christmas. Thank you for sharing.

This is such a fun, silly project! You could even make one for each of Santa's other reindeer.
