Hand Made: Mounted Twig ‘Antlers’

Mounted Twig Antlers on www.earnesthomeco.com

I said it yesterday, and it’s still quite true today that I’m feeling as wintry and rustic as a ski lodge.  These little twig antlers aren’t too season specific, however, as they do hang in my home all year.

It’s inevitable that when I post photos of my living room, I always get questions about the antlers.  I made them quite a while ago, but still love the natural quality they contribute to my wall.  You know that I love neutrals, and with a house slightly devoid of bright color, I need a little something else to pop out (literally).

Materials:

    • Wooden Plaque (craft stores sell them in a variety of shapes and sizes)
    • Twig that forms a distinct ‘V’
    • Power Drill
    • Drill bit that measures similar in size to the twig end
    • Paint
    • Strong Glue (I used Gorilla Glue)

 

  • Self Leveling Picture Hangers

ONE drill a hole at a slight downward angle in the center of your plaque. TWO pait the entire plaque your desired color. THREE attached the picture hanger on the back of the plaque. FOUR glue your twig into the hole and secure until fully dry.

That is really all it takes and you have a little added interest to your gallery wall.  Double bonus?  No animals were harmed in the making of these mounted antlers!

Have a SPECTACULAR day guys!
