Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I’m going to show you how to make twig antlers.
For my challenge, I chose to use this Pin as inspiration for creating some new Spring decor. I wanted to create something to go above my fireplace and my goal was to keep the cost as low as possible.
I started off by taking a trip to my backyard. I cut two branches that were similar in size and that looked a lot like “antlers”.
For the plaque, I thought it would be easiest to trace it if I drew it out on some cardboard.
I cut out the plaque shape using my jig saw and a piece of scrap wood.
I then stained the plaque and let it dry.
To secure the branches in place, I nailed them in. I tried to use what I had on hand, and my nails on hand were too big. So, to deal with that I simply bent the nails with my hammer. The twigs were very soft, so this step was very easy.
To cover up the ugly part, I hot glued some faux leaves and tea roses in place.
Lastly, I secured a D-ring on the back of the plaque so that it could be hung in place.
Once it was hung in place, I call this project done!
I love how it turned out and the total cost was only $2.00 for the flowers. I managed to use supplies I had on hand, and it’s definitely getting me in a spring mood. See you next time my friends,
