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!

    Yep, I think we need to beat this drum a little more,
    to understand that white wine can stall weight loss if not consumed moderately.
    Instead of wolfing down your food you chew it 20 to 30 times or more
    until it becomes a liquid in your mouth and
