DIY Deer Head Sculpture…

My love for natural eclectic decor continues…
I have been wanting a deer head for
my gallery wall in my office for sometime now.
Not like a taxidermists work of art, like one
that used to have a pulse, but a sculpture painted solid white.
 I wasn’t liking the prices I saw of sculptures…
So, I decided to make my own deer head sculpture.
I love how it turned out & I also
love the price {$8.00!!}


There is the lovely little deer head I made…

I love how it turned out.
It was very simple & affordable…

First I bought a paper mache reindeer from Michaels craft store.
{I got it with a %50 off coupon, so it was only $8.00}
I then chopped off the head of the reindeer.. I felt very morbid during this point,
I am officially on Santa’s naughty list this year!!
I used the wall as a reference to how much I should chop off to see how
it would hang on the wall. After I got it perfect, I spray painted it white.
{I used a high gloss white spray paint}
& voila there you have your very own deer head sculpture.
I love the deer sculpture added to my gallery wall
because it adds more of the masculine feel I was going for.
You can see more on the gallery wall {here}

To hang the deer head on the wall, I simply used one
nail to hang the head on, You may find a different
way to hang yours, It just depends on how you
want it to hang.

The gallery wall is still in progress, but this deer
head adds a great element to the gallery wall.

I like the frame around the deer,
but mounting it on a board or simply hanging
it on the wall would look great as well!

I think I am in love… & I am going to love working
under this little deer at my desk. I think he
needs a name… & yes it’s a he :)

This is one of my favorite crafts I have done in a while.
Do you have an antler or deer head art in your house?
I would love to see it.. link it up on the Facebook page {here}.
I hope you all are having a great week so far… I am
working on a few furniture projects, so it has been a great week!
