DIY wall mounted antlers

This has been on a wish list of mine for almost 9 years! It dates back to 2007 when Matt and I miraculously found a fully in tact stag’s skull with 11-point antlers on the Scottish mountains. It was such an incredible find and something we simply couldn’t leave behind so we ended up bringing it home with us.

It has subsequently lived outside in the shed, moved house with us twice and been used for Riley’s 3rd birthday cowboy party!

Not only is our story significant to us and makes this find all so special, where were live we have a local community of wild deer. Below is a photograph taken from the spare bedroom of our passing neighbours! The connection we have with deer is something I want to leverage in our home, so what better way than to bring a natural form (that we found) into our house.

My plan is to mount my stag’s head and have it as a decorative piece in my new home. I would like to position it above the fireplace on the chimney breast in the living room. Not only will it provide a ‘wow factor’, it will allow us to always see it and remember where it came from. Similar to the below:

So watch this space as our next DIY project will be to mount this stunning artefact!
