I made a necklace hanger for my friend who likes taxidermy out of cheap toys and some wood.



It took a lot more work than I expected; First, the dollar store toys I bought started melting... so those were a no-go... then I wasn't finding enough variety of hollow toys... I ended up with still needing one more and ended up just drilling right through a swordfish... lol. The rest of the toys are held on by first covering the screws in polymer clay and baking it, then puting them in the cavities of the painted-white toy heads and filling it up with hot glue... then pre-drilling the holes before twisting the animals heads on. The screws also happened to go too far out the back of the board and I had to file them down. It was all pretty insane but it ended up looking really nice and polished looking so I'm pretty proud of it.

Edit!

My friend that I gifted this to sent me this picture of it in action lol so hear you go:



Thanks for looking!
