Day 12 – Deer Antler Door Decoration

Deer Antler Door Decoration

Today concludes my 12 days of Christmas 2016 of making, baking and decorating. I am ending with another easy, inexpensive, do it yourself project. This one happens to be my favorite of the last 12 days. I think it is the woodsy, natural element that I like so much.

Finding deer and elk antler sheds has become a very popular hobby for hunters and non-hunters alike. “Shed hunting” can be a challenging and rewarding past-time, providing an excellent family activity that can even put some money in your pocket.

I, however, was lucky enough to be gifted two pairs of “sheds”. I display them all year either in my book case, on top of a dresser or on the coffee table.  For Christmas this year I decided to dress one of them up and use as a door decoration. This also would look great just sitting on my coffee table, perhaps surrounded by candles or plants.

After it was complete and I hung it on my front door, I soon figured out they stuck out a bit too far and the door wouldn’t close properly.  I decided to try  them on an inside door and that is where they were meant to be, I smile each time I walk by.

I used minimal simple embellishments that came from the Dollar Store. I wired on the embellishments using twist ties and then added a mesh tube ribbon and tied it in a bow to complete the look. The hook for hanging it on the wreath hanger was attached to one of the embellishments, so I didn’t even have to figure out how to hang it.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed doing my 12 days of Christmas again this year and I already have thoughts and ideas for next year. I hope you enjoyed these posts for the last 12 days and I look forward to your continued support in 2017. Comments on any of my posts are always welcome.
