Faux deer mount…How-to!
In this post, I’m sharing a cheaper way to make a faux deer mount that is very popular right now. If you look on Etsy, you can find one this size for $100 at the cheapest and I just wasn’t going to pay that for something that seemed so easy to make. So, here is my version for $45. It took me about 2 hours with drying time.
(1) Annie sloan chalk paint- Old white color (any paint will work..this is just what I had already)
(1) Martha Stewart Gold paint
(1) medium paint brush
(1) large brush
(1) Faux deer mount from Amazon found here.
Remove the antlers from the mount and paint them with 2 layers of gold paint. Paint 2 layers of white paint on the deer head.
Find the perfect spot for the mount and hang it….yes it’s that simple!
Until next time,
