I hope faux taxidermy stays in fashion forever. I love it almost any way it comes – felt, paper, paper mache, cardboard, plushies… After my faux taxidermy ornaments last year, I’ve been wanting to make more mini taxidermy projects. In comes the idea to make a holiday crafts brooch (complete with glitter).
Let’s get started!
- Silhouette Cameo (and accessories)
- Moose Silhouette File
- Pin Back
- Mod Podge
- Foam Paintbrush
- 3 inch Mini Canvas
- Hot Glue Gun
Step 1: Cut out this Silhouette Cameo 3D moose cutting file. You can adjust the size as you see fit. I made sure the antlers were about the size of my base.
Step 3: Cut off the head/antler portion.
Step 5: After that layer is dry, add another coat of Mod Podge to seal the glitter. This will prevent the glitter from shedding all over your pretty holiday sweater.Step 6: Glue the pin back to the back of your base. I used hot glue because I had that nearby, but any strong glue will work (like E-6000).
I may be in love with this holiday crafts pin. I definitely plan to wear it to holiday parties. I consider it a statement piece. 🙂 Also, I tried it out and the glitter didn’t flake at all! Unlike some of the other unsealed glitter projects I have going right now.
