Easy Pattern for Paper Mache Jackrabbit Head

A jackrabbit “faux trophy mount” is a silly idea – but that’s what makes it so much fun.

The pattern creates all the shapes for you. After it’s taped together and you’ve added a layer of paper mache, you can paint it any way you like.

Need a Jackalope trophy? Just draw some horns on cardboard and add them before painting – lots of people have done it, (scroll down to see some of them), and they’re adorable! 🙂

  1. Hi, is there a way to make these into the masks similar to what you do for the lions? A youth theatre production of the ‘Velveteen rabbit’ and we’d love to try these for the rabbits. I don’t think the bunny mask will be suitable as we want to be able to see the kids’ faces.

    • I don’t have a pattern for a bunny headdress pattern, but some people use my regular mask patterns and put them on top of a bicycle helmet. I haven’t done that myself, so I don’t have any instructions for it.

      • Does the head piece part of the lion mask come separately to purchase? Just wondering if I can figure out a way to attach those two together.

        • I have a pattern for a cap that has nothing attached to it, and I have no instructions to go with it. The jackrabbit pattern is designed for the wall, and is too small to be used as a mask – although you can print the pattern as large as you need to. But you’d need to experiment to find a way to turn it into a headdress mask pattern.

          • Thanks! Where can I find that pattern? I will give increasing the size of the jackrabbit a go – I’ve got an A3 printer – which will hopefully be enough. I think the rabbit being on their heads, (probably in any size) will be sufficient and look better than the alternative idea which was a pair of bunny ears!! 🙂

            • I’ll email it to you. It isn’t for sale, because I haven’t done any testing to see if it will work. Check your inbox in a few minutes. 🙂

  2. Hi Jonni, I am drafting a jackrabbit. I plan to use your pattern for the head. Can you please tell me the approximate width and height of his neck ( the part that mounts onto the wall)? Knowing this will help me to determine if I need to scale the head up or down in size in order to fit it to my body armature. I know there will be a certain amount of experimentation involved, but those measurements (plus maybe circumference?) will be super helpful.

    Thank you! I’m excited about this project!
