The Cardboard Deerhead Project (a.k.a. It's done! It's done! It's finally done!)

Ok, so it has been awhile since my last post.  I was off on vacation for the better part of May and then dealing with all the beginnings of summertime once I got home.

But I have been working on something super special!

Remember this beauty?

Well that was how it looked at first.  I'm proud to say that after several months and so so much glue, I have officially finished my deer head decor project :)

I've nearly abandoned this thing several times throughout the course of this, but the idea I had for it was just too interesting (in my opinion, anyways) to completely give up hope.  So, a few times I stepped away for a week or two, only to come back, make a modification or two, and forge along.

It was odd, right before my husband drought this thing home randomly, I had been seeing bloggers post about these faux deer heads and I was digging them! For example this one here from is very simple and easy to do....but I don't really *do* easy so here's my version....

I mean, seriously, who wouldn't want a glammed up faux deer head in their dining room?


Well, I think it's pretty anyways! Besides, I will always have interesting dinner conversations while this bad boy is hanging around. 

I just need to think of a name for him....

I'm so in love with my faux wood technique and managed to make it look different on the antlers and backboard.

Sorry for some of the slightly crummy pics :( I just couldn't wait for a sunnier day to post about this and my camera hates low light!

So, do you love it or hate it?

Happy Crafting!
