Disclosure: Michael’s provided me with a gift card to purchase some of the supplies for the ornaments used in this series.
It’s Day 11. This one was so fun to make! I’ll admit, I wasn’t very in to the whole deer head thing. Maybe because I grew up in the south and everyone wants a deer head hanging on their wall… the real kind. Some time has passed I have officially jumped on the deer bandwagon. Still can’t do a real one…. but I am loving this little 3D Deer Head Ornament.
I saw these little guys at Michael’s while I was shopping for some Christmas supplies a few weeks ago and I’ve been so excited to use them! I also grabbed those unfinished plaque ornaments to mount my deer heads on. So here is what all you will need…
– 3D Deer Heads from Michael’s
– Unfinished Plaque Ornament from Michaels
– Wood Stain
– Foam Brush
– Hot Glue Gun
How to make a 3D Deer Head Ornament
Using your foam brush, you are going to stain the wooden plaque. I used Minwax’s Dark Walnut.
Once that is dry, I just hot glued my deer head onto the ornament. I chose to leave him unfinished, but you could certainly paint him if you wish. I almost painted him gold, but decided not to. Maybe next year ; )
Kind feels like he should have a string of lights on his antlers doesn’t it? I might just have to find me one of those mini necklaces and give him a little decor of his own!
