One of my favorite accessories to layer in decor are deer antlers. We tend to think of using them in the fall and around Thanksgiving, but I love to use them all year long.
I like to lay one on top of a stack of books or fill a bowl full of antlers on the coffee table. You can find other creative ways to decorate with antlers in this post.
If I find antlers or mounts in thrift or antique shops for good prices, I grab them. They can be pricey, so I get excited when I find them inexpensively. You can also find sheds (antlers that fall off deer annually) on walks in the woods.
One of the mounts that I found recently, I decided would make a fun spring project.
I bought a whitewashed barn board wall hanging in the craft section at Walmart.
Nailing the mount to the board was easy because a hole had already been drilled into the skull.
I hammered the back of the nail down flat so it wouldn’t scratch the wall.
Then I took succulents I had from Hobby Lobby and using a wire cutter, cut the stems off.
Hot glue holds the succulents in place.
