DIY Deer Head Pallet Mount

There is a lot of ways to my heart.. one being cherry coke from Target. Another being my husband coming up with a DIY project & working on it by himself. Yup, I owe this project to him. With out making you want to gag by telling you how much I love him & how awesome he is.. let’s talk about how awesome this Deer head Pallet mount is!!

I bought this deer head from TJ Maxx about a year ago & it sat in my craft closet that whole time with no where to hang, that is until my genius husband made this lovely pallet mount for the lovely little faux deer head. If you do not have a deer head lying around, you can make my DIY Deer Head {here} using a christmas reindeer that you can find at your local craft store. It’s the perfect time of year to make one!

Making this pallet mount was really quick & simple. We gathered weathered pallet boards that we had lying around, applied support boards across the back, & placed a screw where we wanted to hang the deer head on the pallet boards. We hung this pallet on the wall using a wall anchor and screw that was fit for the weight of this piece.

We decided to hang this in our living room on a bare wall that had always been empty. I have this indecisive issue that if it’s not perfect than I don’t even want it hanging there temporarily. This pallet mount is perfect for this space & really adds a lot of character to this little corner.

You could mount other things on these pallet boards like art, picture frames, the options are endless & not limited to faux deer heads. Have you used pallet boards for hanging anything? I would love to see what you did.. leave a link or tell me about it in the comments below :)

This is my new favorite addition to our house. What do you think of our DIY Deer Head Pallet mount? We seriously need to make one for our master bedroom re-do, which is coming along great by the way. I painted the entire room today & I can’t wait to show you the new color. I hope you are all having a great week!!

    I LOVE this! I bought, quite possibly, this same exact deer head at Home Goods about a month ago and I have been trying to decide where to hang it….Thanks for the inspiration :)

    • Thank you Stacey! I’m glad you are inspired! I wish we had a Home goods by us, I’m jealous! I want to see yours when you find a place for it.. I’m sure it will be beautiful!! :)

  2. I have a thing for antlers well a bit more of a thing Im a little obsessed actually! I love how the head is sleek and modern sitting on a big rustic board. Looks awesome youve done a great job :)

  3. Hi, Liz

    I love your deer and looks amazing on the rustic boards as well.


    • Thank you so Much Vanessa!! :) xx

      • I absolutely love, love, love the mount for your deer hear!! We have country home in KY and found a whole deer head skull with antlers and I have been wanting to mount it but not on the standard type mount so I was so excited to see this new idea and that’s what I am going to do! I have been saving wood from our old barn so I will get to work on it. Maybe I’ll post a pic if it looks as good as yours’!! Thanks for sharing. You have a great blog, very talented and cute girl!!

  4. Love this!! I was just seeing some of these in a couple magazines yesterday and they were expensive! Excited about this project, thanks for sharing! Happy Halloween! xo Holly

  5. I love this! I picked up a gold leaf reindeer from Michael’s a few days ago.. super good idea! BTW I saw your new ring set on instragram, I have the same set.. Hubby got it on sale at SEARS a few weeks ago. Marked down by 3,000$ off of 4,000$.. what a steal!

  6. That is totally fabulous! Visiting from Stone Gable.

  7. Seriously can you just come decorate my house! I love the crisp white with a touch of rustic. Sort of the way I am leaning, but with small touches of glam. I found a couple heads just like this at the local swap meet and NOW I am kicking myself for not getting them. I already painted a Doe and Buck on some fence planks, so I was worried it would be too much with more deer items…what do you think? Is more then one “deer” item ok or too themey?

    • Hi Andrea! Thank you so much!! I think if the space you are doing this in is not too small and cramped, it would look great. For example: I have hardly any wall space in my living room due to lots of windows so I probably would not be able to hang more deer items, but I do have deer antlers on my coffee table & it’s not too much. So, if you have a lot of wall space than I think it would be perfect. Or, if you feel like it would be too much, you could carry the other deer items into another room to carry the rustic touch throughout your house. I hope this helps a little bit!

  8. Very cute!! What a great idea!!! LOVE!!!

  9. Super cute. As always!!! I LOVe how the deer is all shiny against the rusticness of the pallets.

  10. Love it! I have a faux deer head too – mine is white and hangs directly on the wall with a couple vintage frames around his head.

  11. Liz!!! I just love this. SO rustic yet chic. Love love.

  12. thank you so much for this great idea. My nephew, Earl, shot his first deer years ago and gave the antlers to my dad. After my dad passed, I thought I would keep the antlers. Now, this weekend, I will have a great project. God bless you and yours.

  13. It looks awesome. I love the deer head on the pallet boards. The contrast of the two elements is awesome.

  14. You ‘re my hero….nuff said..xo

  19. How CLEVER to use a holiday reindeer decoration for this! Brilliant!! It looks absolutely fabulous. I’m pinning!

  20. I really like how it gives the deer head presence, and the tension between the rustic wood and shiny metal is beautiful. Great job!

  21. I am inspired to create a deer head project of my own now!

    Popped in from FYF.

  22. Whay to go hubby! It looks amazing.

  24. Looks great! I’m also totally in love with the pillow on the chair. I think I need a deer head somewhere in my house …


  25. love the juxtaposition between the sleekness of the deer head and the roughness of the pallet wood…very cool
