I'm not one for trends. The chevron patterns, arrows, triangles, the deer head. I see a lot of the same things repeated in scrapbooking, home decor, and design. I don't get it. Really. With that thought in mind I would have never imagined me making a deer head to hang in my own living room.
Wesley and I went to a little craft boutique Saturday. He soon found a little glittered deer head and he talked about how fun it would be to hang on his wall. I didn't really think much of it until he mentioned it again later that night. I knew that a deer head was in my future.
After looking through some paper options I found a pattern for a cardboard deer head online. I decided to make it out of foam core board. It would be light and easy to cut. It took about 4 hours, but I finished him.
He now has a place of honor above the mantel with a little glittery red nose for Christmas.
Wesley loves him!
I'll be sharing the rest of the fireplace decor on Friday.
Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving. Wish me luck! I'm cooking my first Thanksgiving at home this year for our little family. Hope all goes well and my Turkey and Jello Salad turn out great. I may be just a little Jello challenged . . .
