So…yeah, I know, this trend has been around for quite while. Yet, seeing bits and pieces of ideas everywhere around the blogosphere I decided to make a sort of Greatest Hits of DIY Ideas for Vegan Taxidermy. I’ve done a lot of browsing and ended up with a selection of 10+ Awesome ideas involving everyday stuff like Lego, Sweaters, Newspapers, Plastic containers and what have you…Whoever you are, I bet you’ve got the material for at least one of the hacks in the round-up.
