A White Deer Head DIY

 I have wanted one of these white deer heads for some time.  I found one in Charlotte at a cute shop, but the price wasn't cute...$100.
Here it hangs on the wall between the shutters in my daughter's room.  It is hanging a bit high, but I had already put so many holes in the wall; hence, the wreath around his neck to mask the holes.
I found this silver one at TJMaxx.  I know!  Can you believe it?  I love the Maxx.  They had two, and I wish I had grabbed both!  Often, I find a good deal and think I need more than one, which really eliminates the whole idea of saving money...trying to buy just one, when I see a good deal.

Here is one I found online for about $50.  I purchased mine for $14 and I already had the flat white paint.

I will definitely be making this one for Christmas next year!  Dusty Coyote did an awesome job making it.  Her display is so great, too!  Pay her a visit and see the colorful one she made, too!  Tell her you came over from TPL!

Here is a puzzle deer head (Books-a-Million) hanging in the tree house (here and here.)  I should take it down and use it as a template to make more deer heads in different colors. Hmmmm....

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this idea too! I wouldn't like to use it silver, but painted white it's perfect! You can leave that our year round.

Your deer came out great. And I know what you mean about buying more than one item. My husband claims my theory is, if one is good, than three is better…. He might be right! Laura
