Thanks to these DIY kits, you can now knit your very own forest friend to hang on your wall.

Look, it’s all very ‘retro’ to have an animal head mounted to the wall of your house or drinking establishment – but it’s cruel as heck to think that those creatures were shot for that purpose, isn’t it? Not to mention a tad creepy. Which is why we’re a little bit infatuated with these animal head knitting kits from Sincerely Louise, aka Louise Walker. The Brixton-based lass specialises in faux taxidermy (not a profession you hear of every day, that’s for sure), and sells a smorgasboard of DIY kits with everything you need to stitch up your very own forest friends (including super-chunky yarn, stuffing, backing board and knitting needles). Oh, and they’re 100 per cent cruelty-free. Nice one.
