The start of an antler craft ~

toomuchglassDecember 28, 2007

I'm forever asking people for antlers . I just think they are just an awesome part of nature. I Asked my neighbor (who hunts) if he had any spares - and he gave me this pair. They have been laying in the woods forever ...they've actually changed from antlers - to a light "wood" feel . Really dry & porous. So this is my start of a project. I coated them with varnish ,bought yarn that looks like brown suede and started wrapping them . Now the thinking begins. It's going to be a wall hanging for me. I Have tons of doo dads - I just want to get myself to think out of the box and do something artsy fartsy for once ! LOL

I did a google search for 'deer antler home accessories' and found some eye candy. I really like the clock hanging from the antlers, and looks like you have the perfect pair to make it. Enjoy!
