Create this fun animal taxidermy toilet paper holder.
My son loves giraffes. His obsession with them started last year when he attended a huge youth rally in Detroit. One of the leaders brought a small stuffed giraffe with her and their group got dubbed the giraffe squad. I saw several pics of him on Snapchat and Instagram with the giraffe. Since then he’s kept his eye out for anything with a giraffe on it. We haven’t been able to find much, so I decided to make a toilet paper holder for his bathroom.
Instead of just decor, I thought I would make him something that was useful. I thought a plastic giraffe toy would make a fun toilet paper holder. I’ve glued animals to jar lids before and then painted them. I thought I might to the same sort of thing here, but then realized it would be fun to see the colors of the giraffe. I decided to cut a giraffe in half and mount it to a board to create taxidermy decor. Here is how I made it.

Sand the wood plaque smooth.
Apply paint to the wood using a sponge brush.
Let the wood dry. Apply a second coat if desired.
Saw the giraffe in half through the body.
Sand the outside edges of the giraffe.Apply the holder to the back of the plaque.
Carefully apply super glue to the inside edge of the giraffe and press into the plaque.
Allow the glue to dry completely.
Hang the mounted giraffe to the wall near a toilet.
Hang a roll of toilet paper over the neck of the giraffe.
How cute is that? It really cracked my son up. I placed a second giraffe on the back of the toilet to hold a spare roll of toilet paper.
Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft & Strong® is what is hanging on our giraffes. I pick Quilted Northern® because it is a trusted 100-year-old brand.

Mega is a 4X bigger roll (*than their regular rolls) so you’re not worried about refilling the roll! You can pick up the 9 pack Mega Roll of Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft & Strong® at Walmart.
