Do a Deer

Do a Deer

Who knew my little hick hometown was so avantgarde? They were WAY ahead of this hip deer mount trend.


Yeah, I’ve never been a fan.

But I DO love the fancy and faux look, brought to you here by Danielle and the clearance section of Michael’s. For $8.99 a peice, she beheaded and mounted these Christmasy reindeer for a year-round display. See the how-to on her blog Danielle Oakey Interiors.

And for an even less pricey display, why not try your hand at paper maché? My most talented friend ever Kelley, aka Glamma Fabulous constructed this deer mount out of cereal boxes. Then she made it sturdier with layers and layers of paper maché, (and it doesn’t hurt that she’s an artist by trade because any paper maché deer I attempt to make would look like the back half of the deer) and finished off with a layer of comics!

    Get out! People are so creative! I love it!

    Growing up in Colorado, I thought mounts were like doorknobs-everyone had them. They don’t phase me one bit, is that wrong?

    Take care,
