DIY Deer Head Art Wall Decor

Deer heads and hunting themed decor is very trendy and we are loving the options for creative options that are available. Christy made a rustic wall decoration for a store sample.



Supplies:
One unfinished Wood Pallet Plaque
Unfinished Deer Heads and Heart Shape
Metal Faucet Hangers
Americana Decor Oak Gel Stain
Moss FolkArt Painted Finishes



Instructions:
Brush the gel stain on the pallet board and the deer head piece.
Now wipe off the pieces with a soft cloth and allow to dry.
Apply dark moss finish to the crevices of the board, and the deer head piece in a random pattern using a damp chip brush. Now apply to the metal faucet hangers, too.
While wet, apply the light  moss color in random areas, allowing it to mix with the dark green moss.
Allow to dry 4 hours.

If you are a stamper, you will love this new tool! This is great for beginners and seasoned stampers! This is the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented. MISTI for short. Its simple hinge design provides consistent stamping. It works with red rubber cling mount stamps and clear stamps. The magnets help you keep your cardstock or paper in place. The MISTI allows you to do repeated stamped images and helps you align die cuts and stamps.

Each package includes one original MISTI tool that measures approximately 8" x 10" and has a stamping area that measures approximately 6.5" x 8.5", foam pad, grid paper and two magnets. The foam pad (included with the MISTI) is used to raise the cardstock when stamping with clear stamps.
