DIY Wall-Mounted Wampa Head

You know what you need hanging over your fireplace? A Star Wars-themed trophy head. Clearly.

Some Photoshopped images of Star Wars taxidermy made the rounds earlier this year, and the folks over at Our Nerd Home saw them and decided to make one of the creature heads a reality. They chose to build the wampa. The fierce creature of Hoth is a terrific choice, and as it turns out, cost effective. They spent under $20 to create the beast from cardboard, newspaper, paint, white faux fur, and a few other materials.

They go through the basics on their blog and provide several photos so you can follow along at home. I love the details like the eyes and gross yellow teeth. Is it weird that I sort of want to hug it?

Check out some in progress pics after the break.
