ANTLER DECOR IS QUITE POPULAR, WHY NOT ADD A BIT OF THIS POPULAR STYLE TO YOUR HOME? MAKE THIS FLAWLESS ANTLER WREATH USING A REAL OR FAUX DEER ANTLER PIECES. THIS THING IS FANTASTIC AND EASY TO MAKE!
To say that I am excited about this post is an understatement. I love fall. If I could live in a moment of perpetual fall forever. I love the slightly warm days with a touch of crisp air. The chilly nights that require layering and cozying up by the fire. I cannot imaging anything better.
Today I have teamed up with some incredibly, I mean incredibly talented bloggers to bring you 17 amazing fall wreathes. I am so excited to show you how I added some antler decor to my home by creating my non traditional fall antler wreath.
How to add antler decor with a gorgeous antler wreath!
Let talk about what we need for this easy wreath made with antlers:
Believe me, I have millions of ideas swarming in my head. I love to make wreathes, the only problem is trying to focus my energy, and concentration on just one.
I was brainstorming some wreath ideas the other day, but I was feeling kind of stuck. Too many ideas, not enough cohesiveness. As I wondered into my family room, I spotted an antler that my sons had found out on a hike a few years ago. I immediately knew what I had to do. Make a wreath with that antler.
I need to say, this was really easy, like stupid easy. I started by using the antler as the base of the wreath.
I grabbed a few of my faux fall flowers from the dollar store. You heard me right, I got them from the dollar store! I always try to hit the dollar store first, because you never know what they might have and you can often find some great deals.
I laid them on top of the antler. I kept it very simple and used three flowers and a few branches, arranging them into a position that looked pleasing. A secret to maintaining balance is to use the rule of three’s. Often 3 items will look more pleasing to the eye than 2 or 4. The odd number gives a pleasing balance. So, I always try to approach my project with this in mind.
I used some twine to tie the flowers to the base of the antler. I wrapped the twine around the bundle multiple times to secure it all together. This gives more organic feel to this already super organic antler wreath. I keep a package of twine in my craft room, always at the ready. I use it for so many projects.
The last thing I did was tie a piece of burlap ribbon around the base where I tied the twine. This is what the wreath will hang from. I love using left over pieces of burlap to hang my wreaths. I also sometimes tear strips of ticking stripe fabric or use strips of lace! They make the perfect wreath hangers.
A few things I love about this antler wreath:
- Its multi use. Since I did not secure anything permanently, I can take it apart after fall, and re-purpose into something for Christmas.
- The simplicity really rings my bell. I love keeping my wreaths and other decor simple, so that the main features shine.
- It has that nature inspired theme that I love to incorporate into my home.
- This antler was found on a hike our family had gone on. I love using found objects in my home decor. It is the easiest and most effortless way to decorate your home.
What do you think of this fall antler wreath? Is it something you would hang in your home? I think everyone should try adding at least one antler to their home, and maybe this antler wreath would be the way to go. Either way, I love it and I am so glad that I have these resources around me to use. Its not everyday you can go out on a hike and find a big deer antler just laying out on the ground.
I love the way the flowers in the antler wreath coordinate with my mums! That was a happy accident, but I will take what I can get!
