Hello friends! Sharing a fun little project today… I have finally completed a tutorial that I came across on pinterest! Not sure this has ever happened before! Thousands of pins later.. and I think this just might be the first tutorial I have actually completed!
Here is my very own wire deer head! ..created following this terrific step by step!
I made him last night.. with wire I found in my husbands tool box, 16 gauge I believe. In all, I think he took a few hours to make.. this is with me talking on the phone for a good part of it! ha! I needed wire cutters, and a pair of pliers to help bend some of the ends in. That is it!
He hung out in a few places since last night.. but in the end (for now anyway), I hung him above the pantry door in the kitchen. With just a tiny nail.. I didn’t add a special loop or anything, just set it on the nail and he hangs perfectly! I was actually surprised at how stable and ‘not fragile’ he is.. yes, if you sat on him, it would be horrific, but he stays in place… antlers stay up etc!
I love how he is so subtle. He is there.. but not there, know what I mean? Some rustic texture… but not in your face. Another faux deer head on the wall.. but he isn’t screaming “hey! just how many deer heads can Jen hang in one house!?” ha ha!
Looking for a weekend project!? I say DO IT! Check out these step by step photo instructions.. which I followed pretty much exactly! ..I think the only thing I really did different, was add eyes! So fun! ..best part is, it could very easily be a free project (if you have wire around).. or at the most only a few dollars!
Now I am inspired to look and see what other tutorials I have pinned.. I could be on a roll! ..hmmmm, does one project count as being on a roll? ha ha!
