HOMEMADE WOODSY DECOR
CONTRIBUTED BY GLORIBELL LEBRON
It’s the ideal time to create a festive mood with woodsy accents. We love the mix of the modern metallic antlers and the nostalgic feel of the black and white vintage ads. Deers and antlers are a popular theme as of late and while some of us may not mind the real thing hanging on our walls, others may opt for a more animal-friendly version that can be created with a few simple supplies.
- Paint the deer antlers with a gold spray paint. Gloribell used Rust-Oleum Specialty Metallic in Gold because It dries to the touch very fast and the shine it gives resembles gold-leaf paper.
- While the antlers are drying, cut the gift wrapping paper into many different sizes.
- Paste each of the ads in different positions to give the deer head an interesting look. Gloribell used a spray adhesive for this task and only glued the ads on the outside of the head, not inside.
- Optionally, you could put a tint over the ads to give them an old look.
