When we found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted the nursery to have a little bit of an African theme with lots of cute giraffes, elephants, rhinos, etc.. I came across the cutest paper mache giraffe from Anthropologie, and wanted it to hang on the wall of the nursery. I showed it to Ryan, who then proceeded to tell me that he could make one out of paper mache and any other animal I wanted. Whaaaa? Who knew he had a little crafty side that he had been hiding from me. He started with a rhino head and built it out to look pretty realistic! I purchased a French book and we mod-podged the torn pages onto the rhino to look like skin, and then I painted it. It’s pretty awesome. We named her Phyllis. Ryan is already getting started on a giraffe and an elephant. I foresee paper-mache animal heads taking over our home in the future.
