I saw some antlers on pinterest that were painted gold and started to fall in love with the idea. So I started looking on Craigslist for some antlers I could decorate, but most of them came with deer pieces still attached sooooo.... that didn't work out. Then I had an idea to draw my own gold antlers on a canvas and decorate them and voila!
So here's a quick sorta-tutorial to show anyone interested how to make the same thing!
Michael's had a sale on canvases and bought a bunch in various sizes, along with some silk flowers, Martha Stewart gold craft paint, and 1 inch foam paint brushes.
To start I drew the shape of an antler on cardboard and cut it out to use as a stencil (you can see the "antler" in the picture below)
Next, I traced the antler onto a blank canvas and started filling in the lines with Marth Stewart gold craft paint.
I let them dry for a little while and then pulled out my glue gun and some silk flowers to add a final touch to the canvas.
I broke off the flowers from the wire stems and cut the plastic as close to the petals as possible, and glued them to the antlers.
ba bam! Some awesome art!
