I love projects that can be done in an hour or less. There I said it! I also love projects that can be done with scrap wood and supplies that are easily purchased for not a lot of money.
Here’s what I used for quick and easy DIY Geometric Deer Head Wall Art:
- scrap wood
- White Chalky Finish Paint
- Minwax Stain in Chestnut
- Deer Head Cut Out
- Geometric Stencil (similar)
- Fine tipped Sharpie
- Gold Acrylic Paint
- Picture Hanging Hardware
Take these supplies for instance: a deer head cut-out shape from the craft store bargain bin and two pieces of scrap planks. With these supplies and about an hour of my time, I was able to make my own quick and easy DIY, geometric deer head wall art. I simply fused two planks together with some wood glue. Then I used gel stain in Minwax Chestnut and white chalk paint on the boards and deer head respectively. A note about the deer head – I got mine at Michael’s, but lately I’ve seen similar faux wood pieces at the dollar store.
Alright, now to add some interest to your deer head and made it a little three-dimensional. Simply use a cut-down paint stir stick, or in my case, a wood shim and affix it to the middle of your boards. I used small nails, but you can easily use glue.
The next step is to trace your stencil with a pointy Sharpie pen! Le. Love.
The last step is to hang a picture hanger on your deer head, a hook on your little piece of wood shim and picture hanger on the back of the wood planks so it will hang on the wall.
I sort of love the way it looks in our neutral and metallic living room for the holidays! Also in this shot is our Twig and Book Page Advent Calendar.
Done in an hour and perfect to fill that space on your wall ahead of that holiday gathering 🙂
