Trophy animal heads aren’t just for hunting lodges and rustic restaurants anymore, especially when they’re whimsical instead of furry. There are some pretty terrific alternatives to actual taxidermy heads that aren’t trying to look real—they’re definitely tongue-in-cheek.
We love the storybook look of the doe heads at Misfit Menagerie on etsy (and only $32!).
The terrifically talented Tamar Mogendorff has a linen version that you can personalize with your choice of head and antler color–and the antlers are sequined. (And don’t blame us if you find yourself stuck on Mogendorff’s site; her plush animal offerings are amazing!)
Finally, over at mc&co, there’s a tightly woven wicker bull’s head that makes us smile every time we see it.
The best part? No animals were harmed in the making of this hip home decor.
