Twisted Nature – Antlers with Fabric and Flash

Here’s another fun idea for the crafty rustic decorator. It’s a fun visual mix and different than the other antlers that I have been seeing lately.

After the paint dried, I added green crystals to the head for a little sparkle. Unfortunately the end result looked like a brain, and that was disconcerting and sad. As neurological models aren’t in my decorative palette, those stones had to go. Thankfully my final approach with the fabrics proved more successful.

 Antlers definitely aren’t for everyone, and if these weren’t sassy and different, they wouldn’t be for me either. Although these still may not be your style, try to be creative with the latest trends that do appeal to you. Draw from the ideas of others, but incorporate your own flavor into your decor. Design isn’t about becoming a mimic (unless that brings you joy, and if it that’s the case, run with it 100%!). It’s about integrating your personal color and style into your surroundings.

All the best to you!
