Lately, I have been seeing a lot of projects relating to deer heads or antlers. This trend has inspired me to use some animal decor in my own house. I found some old and dusty antlers in our family cabin. They had not been displayed or noticed for years, so I took it upon myself to give them an upcycled look. Rather than cleaning them up and attaching them to a new plaque, I decided to take a more feminine and crafty approach to this project.
I simply cleaned and painted an old frame. I used a piece of scrap booking paper for my background. To attach the antlers, I used a heavy duty epoxy, and I actually had to hold the antlers in place for about 15 minutes. ( These 15 minutes felt like a lifetime!) After the epoxy was set, my frame was ready to go on the wall!
I absolutely love the end result of this project. I think the colors and patterns have a girly vibe, while the antlers of course have a masculine feel. This quirky juxtaposition goes great with my style and home decor.
