The last thing I thought I’d do today was show you a new project.
The last 12 days have been crazy with a new project each day (see them all below this post), but it sure has been fun!
Not to mention, throw in a old sign stencil product launch…
Oh. And book a trip.
And that’s where this super quirky project came in…
So let’s make this reclaimed wood deer head with branch antlers, because it’s my bet you’re gonna love having one as much as I do mine!
My workshop tour
What you’ll need:
- 3 reclaimed wood boards
- rusty hardware
- two branches for antlers
- brackets to hold the branches
How I did it:
- Choose three boards, 3 diff sizes.
- Slightly overlap them, with middle one on top.
- Screw them together from the top, through funky rusty bling. (predrilling pilot holes is a good idea)
- Find something cool by fluke for the nose. Like me.
- Mount the branch antlers.
- Hang it up by screwing it into the wall.
I kinda flew by the seat of my pants with this one (wung it?) so I don’t have a traditional tutorial.
However, if you look carefully, there are three planks of wood before you. One overlapping two others.
( I didn’t even cut nor sand them )
I used fancy rusty hardware where screws would attach the wood planks together, so you didn’t just see screws.
Then added a nose. 🙂
This is why you always ALWAYS shop the rusty junk bins at Granny and Grumpa’s. I need to go back! You know… before someone else discovers how valuable this stuff is. Including Grumpa.
Anyway, two branches held onto the head via (pipe?) brackets sealed the deal.
With everyone getting in on the moose or deer head thing, I was feeling left out… so I had to make my own. 🙂
For a little extra quirk, maybe the reclaimed wood and branch deer head can become the O in these reclaimed JOY letters?
I’ve seen stranger in these parts. 🙂
This project has turned out to be a blast. It goes anywhere, anytime! In fact, I could use another…
Think you’ll try making one?
