I live in an old farm house and I love to decorate it with rustic items I find laying around in the garage or in the cute little tool shed in my front yard. Before I moved in, I was snooping around in the tool shed when I found some deer antlers hanging in the back. I decided to dust them off and use them as decoration in my house once I moved in. I actually posted a picture of them on my personal Facebook page recently and thought since I planned on making another I would just go ahead and show how I made them.
Project inspired by A Beautiful Mess.
Things you’ll need
Deer antlers- no sheds! Must be still be attached to the skull
Fake floral stems
Hot glue gun with sticks
Burlap table runner
Wooden picture frame
Let's get started!
First cut down the flowers off of their stems.
Hot glue the green felt to the back of each flower. This makes it easier to hot glue them on the skull.
Arrange your flowers the way you'd like them presented on your antlers.
Then get to it! I started with the long stems then filled in the rest.
I then hot glued a large round felt piece on the back of the skull so it wouldn't catch on anything. The back of mine had some jagged edges.
Set finished antlers a side
Cut a piece of burlap to fit the back of the picture frame. Hot glue the burlap to the back of the frame.
Put the frame together, tuck in the edge. Trim off the excess burlap that is sticking out.
Attach the antlers to the frame-
Make a mark on the front of your picture frame of where you would like it to be attached at.
Then make a hole through that mark.
Requiring two people- have one person hold antlers tight against the front of the frame while the other person drills into the hole from the back.
And there you go!
