5 Ways to Craft with Deer

In the past couple years, Bambi left the forest and started a new life as a hot decorating trend.  I’m sure you’ve noticed:  deer are everywhere!  The antlers and taxidermied deer heads that we used to banish to our husband’s man-caves are now highly sought accessories.  Deer themed items are especially fun to use fall and winter decor, since they add a dose of woodsy texture and a cozy cabin feel.  Plus, they can be versatile:  add a small wreath or a string of lights at Christmastime, and your deer decor becomes one of Santa’s reindeer.  Shazzam!  If you haven’t already incorporated this trend into your home, I’ve found some fun do-it-yourself options for you.  Check out these 5 Ways to Craft with Deer…. so you can put a deer on it!

1. String Art

String art + deer = #trendingnow.  Combine two fun design trends into one with this deer silhouette string art.  I like the bright pop of lime string against the dark, stained wood.  Delightful Deets shares the tutorial for this project at One Little Momma.

2.  Yardstick Deer Silhouette

Remember this bit of awsomeness?  I featured this yardstick craft by Finding Home last year.  I think there’s something really cool about the juxtaposition of the woodsy, natural deer silhouette and the ordered, mathematical rulers.  This craft is definitely a conversation piece.

3.  Doormat

Fall is a great time to freshen up your front porch, so why not switch out your old doormat for one that is a little more on trend?  Hi & Hello shares the simple steps to put a deer on an otherwise plain mat from Please Note.

4. Throw Pillow

I had so much fun making this personalized deer family pillow.  I know it’s a little early to start thinking about Christmas, but let me assure you, this is a super fun gift idea for friends and family, if you want to get a jump on that.

5.  Silhouette Art

Kiwi & Peach upcycled some of their woodworking leftovers for this project.  They painted a deer silhouette in a happy color onto a wooden canvas made of scrap wood.  It’s a fun nod to rustic signage.

What do you think about the deer/antler trend?  Is is for you?  Do you like the idea of giving your home a woodland or rustic cabin feel for the colder months?
