- hey guys, so i am backwith another diy video. kind of a weird diy video, let me give you a little back story. so there's this store in san francisco called paxton gate, which sells a lot of cool, but kind of weird stuff. and then there's a kid's store called paxton gate forkids, which sells hand made and very well crafted kids toys.


but i was looking up onthe wall, and i noticed these stuffed animal taxidermies. i just think they're hilarious, but they're selling them for $56 each. so i thought that maybe,i could make my own. so the two main materialsyou're gonna need are a wood plaque like this, which i just got off of amazon for $10, and then also a stuff animal,


and i chose a puppy sized elephant, and i also got him off of amazon for $10. if you wanna get theexact ones that i got, i'll put a link in asublime list down below so that you can go find them. so let's head over to my crafting station, and see how it goes. so the first thing i'm going to do is add a hanging mechanism to the back of this,


because i don't want to finish the whole thing and then realize i have no way of hanging it on my wall. (string music) okay, so now that my slightly off-center hanging mechanism is onthere, it's time to paint. for the originals, they seemed to have stained the wood, but i don't have any wood stain, i have acrylic paint.


so i think i'm just gonna paint it a nice blue-green color, to makeit all bright and happy. okay, so my shield is fully painted, so now i'm just gonna setit over there somewhere, so it can dry while i startworking on my stuffed animal. it's time to start some surgeryon this little guy here. i am so sorry, you did not get the life you deserved, but what can you do? so i think the cut i'mgoing to make is going


to come down here kind of under his neck. and then up top, i'm goingto do a circle on his back, so that i can fold thismaterial down over the stuffing, and then sew it in placewith my embroidery. yeah, with my embroidery there. oh god, i'm so nervous, ihope i don't mess this up. i did it, now i have an elephant head. oh, i'm so glad that worked, and didn't like explode all over my room.


okay, i think we can just leave this elephant body, just kind of over here to bleed out and die of its stuffing. and now i have to just kind of take out a little bit of this excess stuffing so this can sit nice andflat on the back of his head. okay, and i think that's good. so now i just have totrim a little bit of this, i overshot this fold over circle,


which is probably goodbecause i can trim it down, but i can never add more, so i'm just gonna trim that so that it fits this outline a lot more cleanly. okay, good, and now ithink it's time to sew. so i'm just doing a pretty simple stitch going over the edge. and since this fur isso dense and the thread matches it well enough,you can barely even see it


once it's all sewn up. which is exactly what i like to see, because i was worried this just wasn't going to work, at all. and there we go, now wehave an elephant head ready to be mounted on wall. that was actually way easierthan i expected it to be. and this stuffed animal turnedout to be perfect for it because the seam, the fur is long enough


that you can barely even see the seam when i sewed it shut, which is what i was kind of worried about. so, yeah, we're actually already almost done with this project. although now i have tofigure out what to do with this bursting open elephant body. this is what emily fromthe brain scoop feels like. okay, so i just took a little lunch break,


but now i have my elephant head, and i also have my shield. so now it is time to put them together. before i do that though, i'm just gonna use a lint rollerto go over my elephant, because he has little bitsof fur stuck all over him from when i was cuttingall of the fur off, so there's quite a lotthat i have to pick up. it's like having a cat, iassume. i've never had a cat.


okay, so now that he is nice and clean, to attach him to the thing, i was thinking of using my e-6000, there it is, except that last time i used it, my room smelled like e-6000 for two days, so i don't know if iwant to do that again. so i actually think hot gluemight be all that i need, as long as i use a ton of hot glue, so let's go for it.


let's see if i ruin the entire thing. okay, i've let my hotglue gun get really hot. because i want to makesure i can really get a lot of glue on this thing. and, oh god, i'm so nervous. i hope this works. (light percussion music) the initial gluing isdone, and now, now we wait, and hold the ears out of the way so that


they don't get stuck down to the board. so there is a lot ofhot glue on this thing, let me just take you in really close here. there's quite a bit of hot glue and i kind of want to cover that up. so, i'm gonna use thisyellow ribbon and just go all the way around the base here, just with another round of hot glue. so we're almost done, i just went


and printed off this little name tag that says "bubbles, 2014-2014," because sadly, he had a very short life. and now i'm just going to hot glue this right here, underneath his head with some ribbon in the background. so it is a few hours after i started, and look, we have astuffed animal taxidermy. i am so happy that thisactually turned out


kind of how i pictured it in my head. i think this would besuper cute for, like, a nursery, or baby's room,or like a little kid's room. it's just kind of like aweird object that's cute, but then you look at it abit closer and you're like, "hmm, not even gonna ask." you could also do this if you have maybe an old childhood stuffed animal that is kinda worn apart and you wanna


save the spirit of it,you could mount its head like this and that might be kind of cute if you can stomach cutting upyour childhood stuffed animal, which i know i could never actually do. so if i were to do it again, since i only had the materials, this isthe first one i ever made, i would have done acouple things differently. first, i probably would have sanded this before i started painting, so it's


a little rough in some parts. it kind of makes it look more rustic, but the paint probably could have gone on nicer if i sanded it first. second, i probably wouldhave measured more, because right now everythingis slightly off-center and not quite straight,which is partly because i was doing it at weirdangles for the camera, but also because i justdidn't feel like measuring.


so if i were to do it again,i would have measured more so it was more, you know,not a little bit wonky. and third, if i was to do it again, i would probably get some wood stain to get this actually looking like wood instead of quite so brightlycolored, 'cause i love this color, don't getme wrong, but it does look like somethingyou'll put in a nursery, and i think this shouldalso be really cool


if you made it look a littlemore grown-up, so maybe you'll have to get somemore supplies and try again. one last thing, i promisei like how it came out, it's just, there are a couple different variations you could do. i probably would've eithergotten a bigger stuffed animal, or a small plaque sothat i wouldn't have to do the name card, which is fine. but the original ones,they didn't have that,


it was just a smaller plaquefor the stuffed animal, so it kind of took up the entire space, which i think i like a little bit better. but i still think that's funny, the "2014 through 2014." i am so sorry i had to kill you as soon as i got you. so i think that is about it. let me know in the commentsif you were to make one,


what animal would you put on your plaque. also if you want tosee some real taxidermy that's not just stuffing and fabric, emily from the brainscoop does that on youtube and i cannot watch those videos because my stomach will not allow it, but yeah if you're actually interested in that, you should definitely gocheck out that channel. okay, my battery light isblinking and the lighting


is all weird because i'm filming later in the day than i usually do, but yeah, let me know if you try it. if you wanted to see my last video, it was a favorites video. you can watch that right here, and if you want to see my last diy video, i made things, oh i made the luggage tags. you can watch that video right here.


oh, and one more thing, i didn't outline what i was going to say so this is all over the place right now. but this actually took wayless time than i expected. i started probably like four hours ago, since acrylic paint dries really fast, and hot glue dries reallyfast, it's already finished, and all ready to be hung on the wall. so if you really wannamake one, keep that in mind


and you can knock thisout in like half a day. okay, now i am done for real. bye guys, thank you for watching. i will see you all nextweek for more videos. okay, bye everyone. (upbeat music)
