DIY: Sequin Taxidermy Form Bookends

Disclaimer: hopefully I don’t scare anyone away with this post, but just wanted to prove to you that I actually DO half the things I post about. Over the weekend I finished my sequin taxidermy form prairie dog bookends (inspired by the works of Nancy Josephson) at the two week workshop I took at AVAM. Not your average bookend, but they sure are fun!

Materials: Prairie dog taxidermy forms (yep, that’s what they usually use to stuff animals), lots of sequins in different sizes and shapes, multi-colored pins and one tough thumb (I swear mine is still numb!). Each one probably took 5+ hours.

Anyone have any good ideas for names for my little fellas?
