OH DEER ! ~ A Christmas Project

I am so enjoying seeing everyone’s holiday decorations and I thought I would give you a sneak peek at one of my projects.

This project has been in my head for months so I am so excited to finally share this with you.

Isn’t he a cutie?

The deer head was purchased at T.J. Maxx and was originally black.  I lightened him up a bit with watered down white paint.  The frame is one I already owned and the buffalo check fabric was a remnant from another project.

The scrolled banner was found on Graphics Fairy and the words were added using Microsoft Word. Printing the banner on photo paper gives it a nice sheen.

I asked Steve to get me a few stems of berries from our holly tree but he must have heard ” get me a truckload of berries”  because I have enough to supply the entire neighborhood. I haven’t even gone outside to see what is left (if anything) of the poor holly tree.

Our house is completely decorated but I can’t show you more.  You’ll have to come back for the Christmas Open House Blog Hop starting soon.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Holidays!

  2. I love that! It's so pretty and I like that you came up with that idea all by yourself. I like how you lightened up the deer head too.

  3. Sherry I love it! It turned out great. Makes me wish I had kept the white deer head I had bought at HomeGoods last month. Thanx for coming to Treasure Hunt Thursday!

  4. I love that red and white buffalo plaid
    of course your mounted deer head looks great on it
    I have always wanted a chair covered in that big plaid and kitchen drapes this encourages me to go looking for that material.
    can't wait to see all your Christmas decor

  5. Oh Sherry, this is so darn cute! I took a bunch of vintage deer to the shop today.. Hope others love them as much as I do. Since we were gone for Thanksgiving, I am a bit (a bunch) behind on my decorating. Starting this weekend. xoxoxo

  6. Oh Sherry! I love your dear deer! How creative you are in the way you put this project together. TJ Maxx is such a great store too. Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the blog hop tomorrow.

    I'm so far behind on checking out all my favorite blogger's Christmas post….I'll have to hurry to be done by next Christmas!
    Which banner did you use from Karen, I went to her blog and typed in banner, but I couldn't find this one. I've been looking for this style…..was there a particular date with this banner printable?
    Thank you for your help!
