A rustic look is guaranteed with the simple addition of a deer antler. They offer you an interesting shape that is also natural, and in most cases, naturally acquired. They are a representation of the landscape and nature around you. In this post, we will consider some deer antler décor ideas that will get your creative ideas flowing.

So, what can i make out of antlers? Well, you have a range of options. The most obvious one you see is a coat rack, an antler gives a perfect profile and interesting shape. Towel rails are also relatively common, yet they are unique given the uniqueness of the antler.

Increasingly, you are also seeing more antler chandeliers, which give a great rustic look. One of the finer examples of their use is to construct the base of a coffee table. They offer a stable base yet a very dynamic look.

You can also use them very simply, for example, framing a picture with them. Simply set your picture into the antlers and put them on a shelf. If you are looking to mount them, you can now buy a range of pre-made mounts that make this job a breeze.

How do you decorate deer antlers?

Deer antlers are one of the most popular items when it comes to decorating a home. They also make a great conversation starter and can be used to show off your winning buck. But how do you create the perfect look for your buck’s antlers?
Deer antlers are not just for mountings on the wall. Spread out a couple of antlers, and they can be an inexpensive, chic centerpiece on your coffee table. If you want to be a little more extravagant, just spread a few of the antlers around the table and put a few clusters of pine cones and acorns in the corners as accents.

What can I make from deer antlers?

Are deer antlers worth any money?

Deer antlers are not only fascinating to look at, but they’re also very popular decorations. If you’ve got some antlers lying around the house, you’ve probably wondered if they’re worth any money. (After all, antlers are quite large and commanding.) While the short answer is yes, the longer answer is that they can be, but it really depends on the kind of deer antler you’ve got.

How do you add color to deer antlers?

Antlers aren’t just for Christmas trees anymore. The growth of the deer antler industry is proving that people are more than willing to pay a premium for deer antler based products. And that includes color. Most people are surprised to discover that deer antlers are naturally brown, which means they have to be bleached to be white or dyed to be colored. This is most often achieved by soaking the antlers in a mixture of water and bleach, which is safe and effective.
You can also add color to deer antlers using spray paint. Simply prime and spray paint whatever color suits. The end result? A pair of antlers that would look great in a hunting lodge, or in a home with a rustic, lodge-themed design.

How do you hang antlers without plaque?

Hanging antlers is one of the best things you can do to improve the look of your home, but it is also one of the messiest. If you try to nail a plaque to your wall, you will inevitably end up with holes in the wall. Fortunately, there are other, better ways. One way that you can hang an antler without a plaque is to tie a string to the bottom of the antler and tie it to the top of the wall. This method works well in the bedroom, a living room or an office. Another method is to use an eyeglass hook.

Can you carve deer antlers?

If you find yourself with a shed buck (or just a set of antlers you don’t want to part with), there’s a way to turn them into beautiful pieces for your home that require only your imagination and a few supplies you can find around the house. All you need is a pair of sharp craft scissors, a glue gun and some paint, and before you know it you’ll be putting together DIY antler chandeliers, jewelry and even a deer antler candle holder. All you need is some inspiration.
