DIY Christmas Reindeer Wall Mount | I’m Lovin’ It

 

If you haven’t noticed, deer and antlers are all the rage this year.  Even if you aren’t a fan of a deer head in your everyday decor, they are perfect for holiday decorating!  I found really cute wooden reindeer silhouettes at Michael’s and new with a little gold paint and glitter I could dress him up for a whimsy faux deer head mount!  No electric tools required.  This Christmas Reindeer Wall Mount is really easy to make, and I picked up everything I needed at Michaels.

DIY Christmas Reindeer Wall Mount  at TidyMom.net  Super easy craft (no tools needed) for #Christmas

What you’ll need:

  • Wooden reindeer plaque (from Michaels)
  • Unfinished wooden plaque (from Michaels)
  • Paint (Green, White, Gold & Gold Glitter)
  • Paintbrush (you might want one for each color paint)
  • Red Pom Ball
  • Foam Adhesive Circles
  • Glue gun/glue
  • Twine (optional for hanging)
  • staples

 the steps:

  1. Paint reindeer plaque white and wood plaque green.  Set aside to dry.  Repeat until you have good coverage (about 3 coats)
  2. Paint reindeer antlers with 2 coats of gold color paint.  Let dry.  
  3. Paint antlers with one coat of gold glitter paint
  4. Using a glue gun, hot glue a red pom ball on to the nose of the reindeer 
  5. place foam adhesive circles on back of reindeer plaque (I stacked them 3 on top of each other so the faux deer head would have a more 3-D effect), then stick reindeer plaque to green wooden plaque
  6. Staple a small piece of twine to the back to hang.

I especially love him  with the other Christmas Wall Art I made – he fits right in!   This was such a fun and SIMPLE craft project, something you can undertake in just minutes + drying time!
