Make Your Own Animal Figurine Jewelry Rack
Gather your materials and layout the animals in the order you want them.
Using your utility knife, cut the front portion of each animal off. Lay them flat on your cutting mat, and make sure the angle of the cut is correct and adjust accordingly.
Drill a straight line about 1/2" deep into the center of each animal head. Cut 3/4" dowel bits and insert into the drill hole of each animal. Use your scrap animal pieces to practice drilling before you go for the actual animal heads.
Measure and mark where you want your animals to go on your board, and drill holes in your marks about 1/2" deep. Stain or paint your board the color or shade you want and allow to dry. I used Honey Pine gloss PolyShade by Minwax, which is a stain and polyurethane in one.
Insert your animal heads or butts into the drill holes and mix and match as you please.
Remove animals from the 2nd and 4th holes and use those holes to hang your rack. Be sure to use a leveler, and trim down any dowel that may stick out too far to make the animals flush to the board.
Insert wisdom here.
Hang jewelry from the your animals heads, or leave as is for a sweet new piece for your wall.
